Egypt is a country that is on almost every traveller’s wishlist. The land of pharaohs, hieroglyphs and mummies has a magical attraction. As a child, it was a dream for me to ever see the pyramids, tombs and temples in real life. Although modern Egypt could not really enchant me, visiting the ancient sights was an unforgettable experience.

I spent two weeks in Egypt. The cruise on the river Nile was fantastic.

Abu Simbel are two massive rock-cut temples in the village of Abu Simbel
I loved the underwaterworld of the Red Sea

The Red Sea is a real gift from Mother Nature. I had the opportunity to discover for the first time this enclave between the African continent and the Middle East in 2011, a few months after the Arab Spring. Tourists then deserted Egypt’s dive sites and resorts such as Hurghada. Diving on these world famous sites was a revelation and every return to Egypt is for me an immense pleasure.
