Cairo’s Pyramids #sneakpeak

The pyramids are magnificent structures that could only have been designed and built by the most intelligent beings. It was amazing to see these grand tombs and how Ancient Egyptians truly valued their life after their deaths here on earth.

Something else that was amazing and has always has been wonderful to note with traveling is the similarities in how things are in different parts of the world. For instance, the way that the stones in the inside of the Great Pyramid of Giza (Pyramid of Cheops)  are very similarly shaped to the ones that I saw at Machu Picchu. I would show you a picture but there are no pictures allowed in the pyramids especially The Great Pyramid of Giza (the other ones you just tip your pyramid guide a few Egyptian Pounds like the rest of the tourist).

Amazingly we were one of two couples inside of The Great Pyramid of Giza. This is ridiculously unusual for Egypt’s high season. #ComeToEgypt

More pictures to come after I get to some better wifi. Time to pack and head to the airport! #NextStopEthiopia

“I don’t like touristy places”


I don’t understand the overuse of  the phrase “I don’t like touristy places”. Would you go to Egypt and not visit the Sphinx? Would you go to Rome and not see the Colosseum? Would you go to Miami and not have a cocktail on South Beach? Would you go to Peru and not marvel at the Inca’s gift of Machu Picchu. A lot of places are “touristy” because they are amazing places to experience. Don’t miss out on life following a cliché, just wake-up early and get there before the crowds arrive. =)
