... temples and Luxor Temples. Actually Anna misses this as she’s got a stomach bug. The kids behave once I growl and it’s a pleasant visit. Karnak contains a number of temples, some of which are amazing and statues, obelisk and gates. Luxor, called Phebes in ancient times, is considered an open-air museum with many statues still buried and waiting to be discovered and restored. It’s a fascinating place, touristy and very enjoyable. Again we’re fortunate that ...

A travel blog entry by lisaknitter

Yep, less than a quarter of the entire country is able to be farmed and I reckon we passed it all in the North...the cabbages, melons, tomatoes, cotton and solar panels! Heading into the mountains with hope fading, the gauge the wrong side of empty and miraculously a gas ...

Athens: Take 2

... my time in Greece and the amazingly beautiful landscape and scenery however this was where I've felt most lonely on my trip so far. I really missed my friends whilst I was here, probably because of the huge party scene and think it could of been a lot better with them here. Hopefully one day I'll come back with some good mates and experience the real Greek Islands! It's not the same partying when you're solo. You don't have that one constant friend that has your back and you have to be ...
