After standing in front of my wardrobe for about 20 minutes or so I have realized that I somehow I have accumulated enough clothes, shoes, accessories, and other things to stock a small boutique. This terrifies me and instead of attempting to sort through what items should be shipped where (and instead of reading or writing massive papers for class) I've decided to take some official down time and bask in the glory that has been this past month.
Sebastian came to visit a few weeks ago and his trip here definitely didn't seem long enough! We were able to go to Alexandria and Hurghada for a few days, as well as tons of sight seeing in Cairo. It was quite the hilarious and fantastic experience, but I'm really looking forward to some less-hectic European travels with him. :)
Here are a few of my favorite shots from this adventure...
|Visiting the Citadel in Alexandria. The weather was quite chilly and the view was astounding! We had a small incident here when a group of awful Egyptian boys hassled me mercilessly, but thankfully Seb took care of it. ;)|
|At the Giza Pyramids with some of my favorite Germans. :) Liana's horse became a little lazy half way through the journey and decided to lay down in the sand. I won't post any of these pictures though. :P|
|Seb and I visited the Citadel in Cairo! The military propaganda was absolutely hilarious. We especially liked this sign that was marked, "A Germany's Gun."|
|We also had a nice falluka ride and sandwich lunch on the Nile River! Our boats name was "The Joker." The weather was perfect that day and we got to walk through Zamalek to explore more of Cairo.|
|These cute little guy kept us company at our beach resort in Hurghada. I enjoyed watching him build his nest in the umbrella just over our heads.|
|There were jelly fish all over the beach! These one's didn't sting though, so naturally Sebastian and I had a little jelly fish fight. He was rather good at using the small ones as skipping stones in the sea. They were immensely fun to play with!|
|Starfish are my favorite animals--so strong and unique. I'm glad Seb was able to hold one for the first time while he was in Hurghada!|
|Enjoying the cool sunset on the beach...|
|Sunsets by the sea are some of the best! Obviously this trip was just not long enough. :)|
