Egypt! November 13th-18th

Egypt was absolutely amazing! We spent time in Cairo and Luxor, Egypt. I rode camels, went inside a pyramid, belly danced, took a hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings, went swimming in the Nile River and saw mummies up close. The trip was just so awesome!

On the first day we took a trip to Old Cairo. We visited the pyramids of Giza, toured the Sphinx, visited a perfumery, papyrus shop, visited the Steppe Pyramid, toured Memphis, and went on a Nile River Dinner Cruise.

After 3 days in Cairo, we took an overnight train to Luxor. That overnight train made me a stronger person ;) It was like nothing I had ever experienced before.

In Luxor we toured the Valley of the Kings, Colosso of Memnon, and the Tomb of Queen Hatshepsut.

The entire experience was unreal. Visiting Egypt was something I had wanted to do since I was in elementary school. It was so cool to experience another culture, and visit another continent.
