Voyage voyage.. This is an old French song that I would like to sing now! We are travelling tomorrow to Maldives and Sri Lanka, and I am going to buy a new camera to take plenty of beautiful pictures, yay! Since we love to travel to near and far destinations, I would like to share our experience with you, including some tips on where to go or what to eat! My first post will be about Sharm el Sheikh. So, ahlan wa sahlan in Egypt!
We spent the first days at the wonderful Sofitel Hotel that has a super lovely beach bar!!
The magnificent view from the bar. On the right side of the picture lie the isolated and very calm beach sections.
From there you can walk in the evening to Naama Bay, a long promenade full of tourists and restaurants….
… and plenty of night clubs like the Little Buddha!
Absolutely not to miss is the Saint Catherine Monastery, a World Heritage Site. It lies very far away from Sharm el Sheikh but is definitely worth the long trip.
Attention mes dames, take solid shoes for the long walking trip up to the hill.
On our way back we were almost forced to stop at Dahab (called “gold” in Arabic for its beaches), …
… a rather scruffy place but very popular among young divers.
Then we moved to the huuge Sheraton Hotel! We change hotels to be on the safe side, should one of them be unbarable!
Here the (male!) animators will make your belly dancing dreams come true!
The next day, we took the highly recommended trip to Ras Muhammad National Park where we could admire the rare mangrove trees, crabs …
…and an impressive hole in the earth caused by an earthquake!
During this same trip, a stop is made to give you the opportunity to snorkel. You can rent the equipment on your way there. Snorkeling is amaaazing, don’t miss it!
And after your hard snorkeling efforts, you can enjoy a very delicious tea under this beduin tent. Enjoy! Sahtein!!
