Australia Day at Karnak

A travel blog entry by kazbar212


Totally forgot to finish this entry off, and believe me Karnak deserves a lot of verbiage.

We got up fairly early in anticpation of booking a train ticket to Cairo and then exploring Karnak either side of lunch. Carriage touts, taxis, etc...ignore them. Luxor is small enough to comfortably walk around and the Karnak complex itself is only …

Valley of the Kings for lunch.....

A travel blog entry by kazbar212


I've adequetly described the amazement and sense of history that we both feel as we stride through both ancient and modern Egypt. However, nothing will ever prepare you for the impact of some sites. The Pyramids were awe inspiring and the Valley of the Kings is no different. I'm getting excited again just writing about it! A collection of tomb …

Medinet Habu for afternoon tea....

A travel blog entry by kazbar212


Would have thought that it would be difficult to top Edfu or Deir el Bahari, but Medinet Habu does it for me. Rhiannon too I think. The level of preservation, particularly of painted relief carving,is astonishing. Built by Ramesses III during the New Kingdom Period it contains several smaller chapels and is deliberately "fortified" in a style …

Deir el Bahari in the morning...

A travel blog entry by kazbar212


I decided to seperate these entries again because of the sheer amount of photos to upload. Early start at Happyland as we were again stuffed full of a diverse and tasty breakfast. There were only four of us booked for the tour, and this worked out really well. Mahmoud had arranged for a guide to stay with us the whole day, which is ordinarily not …

Taking it all In

A travel blog entry by kazbar212


Hanging out in Happyland today after last nights fun. Trying to catch up on the blog, make some friends and generally take in the sights of yesterday. We'll probably head out to Karnak tomorrow and assault another round of temples in the afternoon. We've learnt to go slower as we travel, although it feels like we been gone for months. Sometimes …

    HAppyland Hotel is a Fantastic place to stay in Luxor. Cheaper than a lot of other available accommodations, friendly and always ready to please. Your room is cleaned every day, the breakfast is huge and delicious (fruit, bread, coffee, etc...), and the staff know heaps about Luxor. Take a tour (ask for Khamal) from here to the Valley of the KIngs, Medinet Habu and Deir el Bahari and you will not be disappointed. Khamal knows more about Egyptology than I do.

    The reception staff are awesome, Hamdi the Joker and Mahmoud will make your stay fun and happy. Ibrahim the owner sits guard outside, quietly reading the paper. The facilities are great and the water is HOT! Couldn't be happier. Check out the PUB 2000 round the corner as well. :)
