Doing very little in Dahab

A travel blog entry by bakpaknbizclass


After a week of temples and constant on the go, the plan for being in Dahab was for the most part nothing but R&R. It’s the Egypt version of a beach town on the Red Sea, looking across at Saudia Arabia. Technically it’s the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea is to the south where the waters open up to the sea, but when we’re …

A travel blog entry by jjweatherstone
