Hey Friends,

Many think that during hiking its easier to go downhill than uphill.

True going uphill is very tiring but going downhill is the most strenuous for the knees.

Egypt is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and rightly so.  The country is literally covered with ancient ruins dating back to the Pharaohs and their magnificent civilization.

But there is more to Egypt than its amazing history. The people, the culture, the diversity, and its current political complexities intrigued me and I wanted to see it like a Native.

I wanted to get an authentic experience, to immerse myself to the core with everything that is Egyptian.

And this is exactly what I did.

Join me as I travel Egypt like a Native, get a real taste of this magnificent country, maybe you will want to do the same 🙂

hereWhereas many perceive the Black Desert as a place of death, I see it rich with life!

With a sturdy 4by4, some extra gasoline, spare tires, water, and the company of experienced friends, I went in an off-road adventure to find out how the Black Desert provided the early settlers with the necessary means of survival. But what I saw surpassed all my initial expectations!

A lot is already said about Jordan’s Jewel; Wadi Rum “the like of which was never created in the land”.  All I can say “if you are looking for a place far from the hubbub of the city, Rum is the place to be”.

What better than a breathtaking landscape with its amazing soothing colors, incredible night sky, and the great company of the Bedouins.

To me, a day in the desert is worth a lifetime in the city.

Enjoy the photos 🙂
