I have wanted to go to Egypt and see the pyramids since I was a little girl. This was one of the first things that I put on my life list when I made it over a year ago. I have been to the Middle East before to some not-so-safe places, so I really wanted to find a safe way to go there. I happened to find this awesome cruise that went to Egypt and all over the Mediterranean, so after saving like bandits for a long time….we pack our bags and went!
Egypt was not exactly what I expected. It was a lot dirtier (maybe because of all the sand?) and more crowded than I thought it would be.
I had done some reading prior to going, so I expected the tourist trap things near the pyramids. I have to say though that the people selling cheap plastic Egyptian statues around the pyramids took away from it a bit. But, overall I loved it and it was amazing to see them in person!
