The Adventure Continues!

A travel blog entry by ritawritatravel


"Wake up, G Adventures, we are leaving!" came the call about 130am (about 3 hours after I went to bed). Why you ask? Mother Nature opened the skies and it was an utter downpour never before seen in the desert, especially in the summer season. Lightning lit up the sky and thunder crashed repeatedly. Our tents were starting to leak and we made the evacuation to our waiting jeeps for transport to the main camp. Prior to the call, the sounds had awoken us so I was able to literally ...

Proverbial Day We'll Never Forget

And we think our lives are complicated. He is starting his own adventure touring company in Croatia, working in the former Yugoslav states. If you want a good guide in that region, contact ...

"Have a Blessed Hajj"

A travel blog entry by ellengoeseast


... foreign concept here.

Once I had purchased my ticket (30 EGP for a 2-3 hour bus ride, which really puts that taxi ride from the airport into perspective!), I was left trying to figure out which bus would be the one for me. Given the fact that the buses didn't have any numbers or destinations on them (that I could tell anyway, there might very well have been in Arabic) there really wasn't any obvious way to tell. Luckily a friendly local was able ...
