Land of the Pharaohs - We're Finally Going!!
My wife and I saw our arrival in Doha 4 years ago as an opportunity to visit some of the most exciting and exotic places in the Middle East - Dubai, Jordan, Turkey, Oman . . . but on top of our list is Egypt. It has always been Egypt. The main reason is the pyramids and its ancient ruins that we have studied for a long time in elementary, high school and college and so far, we have only seen in movies and TV documentaries.
Coming to the the Middle East was our first real opportunity to see the Great Pyramids. However, it did not proved that easy to travel because within that 4 years, somehow, there were always somewhere more important to go to or more important things to spend our income on.
This time, however, thru the wonders of modern commerce, air travel, package tours, rewards and air miles, we were able to push a few buttons and got ourselves a 4 days/3 nights tour to "The Land of the Pharaohs".
It's one of those "50 things to do before you die" kind of stuff and we're so excited about it. I'll definitely write about the trip afterwards.
