Wandering the World

Stories and tips from around the world.

Egypt

From Cairo to Alexandria

Going to Egypt was the first of my “big” holiday adventures. It was the first time I’d been abroad without my parents, and started me off on the path to try and visit as many countries as I could. I was ill for a good portion of this trip, so left with hopes that one day I will return to Egypt.
