Earlier this year I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Egypt for 2 weeks. While there I went hot air ballooning, and what started as a magical experience quickly turned deadly.

Things I Learnt on My First Cruise

I went on a cruise when I was half way through my teaching degree. For me it was a bit of a celebration that I was half way there, and while I had a good time there were a number of things that I discovered that I’ve always thought would be useful information for people out there new to cruising.

Best Bucket List Experiences in Egypt

Egypt has always seemed so unattainable to me since it is marketed in Western media as being really unsafe. However, after reading a post by one of my favourite travel bloggers, it was all the justification I needed. I booked myself onto a Top Deck tour and set off to my dream location.

Here are the top bucket-list experiences I had while I was in Egypt in January earlier this year.
