... had gone flat and the computer refusing to do anything. Having fallen asleep so early Jo was wide awake at 0300 and actually went for a nocturnal wander around the ship in search of a cup of tea. She managed to find tea but no hot water, actually between 0200 and 0400 there is no form of nourishment available on the ship, continental breakfast starts at 0400. Nick was up at twenty past 5 having accidentally had his 8 hours sleep and in the gym for opening time at six ...
Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...

I think I've used the word terrorist enough in this blog that the NSA is probably reading along. So hi guys! Thanks for all you do to protect our country!
We drive past the area where Moses and the Israelites probably crossed the Red Sea from the Sinai to what is now Saudi Arabia. There's a shallow strip that connects the two sides, so it's conceivable this is where ...
... is a good thing or not??
Anyway we decided to go for a few more drinks and a couple of games of pool after dinner which was quite cool. But unfortunately it wasn't Gary's night, he was off form and I didn't have enough fire power to carry the team. We came away with a few wins in the end so it was all good.
Time to pack our bags and hit the pillow as we want to get away earlyish tomorrow and head to Cairo.

Historical Traveler Reviews Three Corners Palmyra Resort Sharm El-Sheikh
"A lovely time we had"
Having read the reviews about this hotel we were a bit concerned but found them totally unfounded and had a lovely time.
We booked it on a last minute deal through teletext so was very cheap.
Rooms were very spacious and clean,
Staff extremely helpful.
Food was good, hot and plenty of it.
Location was a bit out of the way but didnt bother us.
Pool a bit cold but then it was february but we all still had a dip!!
we had a great time and have booked to go back to the same hotel in October!!
If you're not fussy about having a variety of good food and are not interested in leaving the resort then this is the hotel for you.
Never in my life time
Certainly not a four it would push a three, the food was not to the standard of a four star and the choice for kids was terrible. The room we had was a good size, and the staff were very friendly especially if you tipped them. The pool was freezing. Over all we had a good stay if you are looking to be entertained this will not happen so take a deck of cards or o good book with you.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at The Three Corners Palmyra Hotel. This is definately not a 4 star hotel. It would be lucky to scrape a 3 star rating.
After viewing some of the reports about this hotel I would like to correct some of the half truths that have been written.
Just arrived home from this hotel today, we stayed for a week from 23rd January 2006 - Myself, my wife and our 3 year old son.
Just got back from the Three corners resort prymira..
Hotel was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly..
Pool was freezing so unless you like ice baths dont consider going in!
Food to a good standard and plenty of choice..
It is under a flight path so be prepared for some noisy planes but its only a few times a day...
overall a good clean hotel with good staff and good standard of food a good base for seeing Egypt..
P.S. dont take the coach to the pyramids as it is an 8 hour drive each way on very bumpy roads ....
I have been in Three corners palmyra from 18th to 25th of december 2005 with my family...two children 7 and 3.
