Me on a camel
This morning we went snorkeling in the sea. I was kind of scared, but sore some fish which were beautiful! Had lunch in which I had a pizza which is very nice. Actually they were amazing!! Later in the afternoon about 4.00 pm, my mom and I went for a camel ride. Which was an experience of a life time.
The hotel took us to the edge of a freeway. Where we got on two camels each, lead by a guide. One got the freeway and then the desert, so the camels where at the edge of the desert. The guide lead us to a Badawin camp for an experience which they offered tourists like us tea and some traditional bread. Then as we were ridding back the sun was setting.
It felt very sad to have our last supper and pudding. Tomorrow we are leaving , to go home.
Swimming in the Red Sea
Sun set in Sharm
Yesterday morning after breakfast we went for a walk in the town which is also got lots of tourist resorts. All the hotels are packed next to one another. It was horrible! Well, for lunch we went to a McDonald’s, which tasted horrible!
Then in the afternoon we went back for swimming and now I have blisters on my toe.
Merry Christmas! Today has been quite a nice day. Woke up around 8:00 am, well my mom woke us up, Quickly opened our prezzies (Or else we would be late for breakfast), which were books. Got the book I wanted. Then we went down for breakfast, which was awesome is the only way to describe the food. You have to go there to experience the food for oneself. Afterwards we went on a glass bottom boat while Graeme went diving, saw loads of fish and took lots of photos and then Lara and I went swimming in the pool, which was lovely and warm. Mom came later. We then had some cake for tea, which I think was fruit/Christmas cake, not to sure.
Then after lunch my Mom, Lara and I went to swim in the Red Sea, which was awesome!! It was so nice and warm. Afterwards I had a shower and took some photos of the sun set and city lights in the distances.
Somethings are never far from home and that is the little things that buzz around one and bite you called mosquitoes! The joy of life. Then I got burnt this morning on my right side of my body, which is really weird. It was quite surprising that the sun is quite strong.
That is it until tomorrow.
Hotel Sof1tel, Sharm
Today is Christmas Eve! And soon we will be going to Christmas Eve supper. I actually wish I was home for Christmas with my cousins, aunt, uncle and my Gran. It doesn’t feel like Christmas here in Egypt at all! This morning was long with having to catch both flights. One from Aswan to Cairo and Cairo to Sharm El Sheikh. In a way I am so glad in a few days I will be home! It is weird with Omumaha not around. After lunch we went for a walk on the beach, the sand is so different. Also to check out a price for Graeme to go diving and Lara to horse ride. I have decided I am not going to anything, but just relax these few days and do a few gym work outs!
Supper was awesome!! Had turkey and pudding!:D Everything was so good and there was so much food!! I ate as much as I could. Every girl got even a red rose at the cocktail party before hand. It was beautiful!!
A Muslim Temple at Aswan
- One of the many boats
This morning it would be just my luck to wake up feeling sick! So I have caught the tummy bug that goes around when one eat something one is not suppose to eat or drink the tap water by mistake. I didn’t feel like eating breakfast, but I was forced to eat some cornflakes and a hard boiled egg. (The eggs are awesome!). The food doesn’t agree with me. After breakfast we went on a boat ride this morning along the Nile, which was very nice and it did me good. We saw an island and yes another temple. Then about 10:00 am, we relaxed on deck by the pool. It was weird I had a coke, another boiled egg and a croissant for my second breakfast. For lunch, since I couldn’t stomach much, I had some pasta with plain tomato source and some cheese on top and I also had a sprite and I also tried to eat some chicken.
I didn’t go touring this afternoon, my tummy was really sore!:( I think I actually slept for 2 hours! I am having my second cup of tea and I managed to eat a wheat-worth without wanting to throw up! I am quite proud of myself. Sorry for been so disgusting but this is what happened!
This evening we said goodbye to our guide Oumaha. It is quite sad actually, he was a nice person. Actually he inspired me to become a tour guide so I must thank him for my career in tourism.
Tomorrow we have to get up at 4:00 am in the morning to get to the airport. Since our plane to Cairo leaves at 6h40am! Then depart form Cairo at 10h05 and arrive in Sharm El Sheikh at 11h05.
I am now going to pack, have supper soon and go to bed early.
