Huey’s Trip Diary - The ‘Best of Egypt’ - Part 6by Tania Wheeler

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.
