One of our intrepid travellers, Huey, travelled on the 'Best of Egypt' 14 day accommodated trip which started on the 5th December 2010 in Cairo, and wrote us a daily diary! Here is the final part of her series of diary entries....
Day 10 - 13 - Hurghada to Dahab
We took the short flight from Hurghada to Sharm el-Sheikh, before continuing by road to Dahab as the ferry services were not operational during our stay.
Dahab is a magical laid-back seaside town where you can choose to do plenty (from climbing Mount Sinai & visiting St Catherine's Monastery, hop across the Gulf to Petra, Jordan to see one of the 7 Wonders of the World, snorkel/scuba-dive the amazing Red Sea, quad-biking in the desert) or do nothing! We opted to climb Mount Sinai & visit St Catherine's Monastery. We also did a daytrip to Petra, Jordan to see one of the 7 Wonders of the World.
Day 14 - Dahab to Cairo
An overnight bus trip back to Cairo marks the end of a wonderful journey where we saw plenty of historical monuments, breathtaking scenery, amazing stories & lots of friendly locals.
