Nile cruise

I’ll admit it, I’m on the Nile…

It all started with an afternoon by the pool at the only hotel on it’s Nile side island. Now we’re lazily cruisng up river, stopping at different temples and valleys along the way.

The scenery changes from lush palm forests and mango trees to sandstone quarries, used to build the pyramids, and golden desert sandscapes. Whatever the scenery, the mood is always relaxed, food is served regularly and warm sun and clear sky keeps our spirits high.

For a slight change of scenery, we transferred to a smaller sailing boat called a felluca, and took a sunset sail around the neighboring islands, passing botanical gardens, hilltop mosques and a nubian village.

Tonight is the Captain’s dinner where we’ll get the opportunity to party like an egyptian as well.

  1. This sounds fantastic! I love that your parents are there with you. What fun all of you must be having! Looking forward to seeing all the pictures and hearing the stories when you return to the states. I think your world travels will be influencing our future dinner cuisine. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Yea it’s fun having some familiar faces around and sharing this with them. Plenty of photos and stories to share, probably a whole bottle of arbor mist worth 🙂 Lesley Grigg Freelance Writer lesleygrigg.com
