... about, and now I have pretty much no money left. I've already emailed a place in case I don't get the job at Jamie's back. Next month or so is going to be difficult financially but hopefully it'll all work out well, it's only money after all. Me and Matt are off for a snorkel I believe! Then a nice relaxing night dive tonight. Lots of love to all of you back home and see you soon. I cannot ...
... to hear Charlotte on the phone to the manager of the whole operation, complaining about Mohamed having tea and a shisha at a rest stop. He returned to the car. To hear 'Inshallah' as a response to 'when will we get there' is not reassuring. The guy had been up for nearly an entire day. The car was weaving across the road. Charlotte bought him coffee and food, and tried to tell him not to have another shisha, but he was having none of it and sat there for 20 mins ...
... Why so soon?? Jets had been nailed by some sort of jelly fish and he had stings all over him - so glad I didn't go in.
After a shower and some cream Jets was fine and we all met at the hotels a la carte restaurant for the final supper. It was nice to be served but the service was not even that good and the food wasn't anywhere near as good as the buffet. Apparently we had missed out on "Russian Night" not sure ...
... which lets me dive SS Thistlegorm.
The Blue Hole was crazy, both times i went we entered at Bells which is like a giant slippery slide which shoots out at 25m. You stop, look around and all you see is a giant wall which spans from the surface to as far down as you can see (it’s actually a 300m drop). You then swim along the wall until you drop over a ...
... well lit and not to difficult to navigate. Bishi Bishi camp was the place we found and after arguing that we was arriving at 1:45am so should have to pay the full room price the guy there accepted and I paid £1.5 to share a room with a guy from New Zealand and finally get some sleep since leaving Jordan. I curled up ready to check out Dahab in the morning.

Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Sea Holiday Village Sharm El-Sheikh
We visited Sharm in October 2006 and stayed at the Concorde El Salam and had the most fantastic time. We loved the style, the service, the food and were blown away by how fantastic the sea is. The whole family were snorkelling.
just arrived back from the holiday village red sea 25 july 07,we were really dissapointed the hotel wasnt finished first choice said it was.we were woken up most days with the building work.loads of things not ready,the main staircase was coming apart from the wall,loads of rubble falling on the floor,electrical wires just left bare,didnt no if they were live or not no fire alarm system working yet its not good when you have got 2 children under 5 with you,the swimming pool turned the kids swimwear brown,my husband is diabetic and they didnt have any drinks for the whole trip,tennis courts wasnt ready either.once the hotel is complete it will be gorgeous i recon next year.after 12 days my hub and 2 kids had terrible tummy trouble,its 28 july today and 2 of them have still got it,i took my 3year old the doctors yesterday, and he has given her antibiotics.they enjoyed the kids club and entertainment and the staff were brilliant cant fault them.our room was lovely kids loved the dvd they watched in the day when it got to hot outside
this was spoiled by first choice lying to us stating the hotel was finished when we would arrive, nothing could be further from the truth . we were put in block 9 which was betwwen two buildings sttill to be finished, building 24hrs a day the noise was unbearable, builders shouting names at my wife which i couldnt say on here, constant electrical problems in room , no outside light the full holiday it was rushed that much the dvd player wasnt wired to tv and no batteries in control, we had a kettle in room but no cups tbags coffee sugar or spoons, the telephones never worked in room, the fire alarm call points were not there, all the wires were exposed and you never trusted if they were live or not, it wouldnt be a suprise to me if someone is seriously hurt in the hotel . when we went to main pool your skin went orange due to some problem with pool that wasnt fixed they said it was high levels of copper, my daughters skin went orange like fake tan then the next day came out in a severe rash,
Where to start? The holiday started badly to say the least. The Holiday Village was not ready to open when we arrived on the 14th June due to a problem with the fire alarm system so we were placed in the Conrad Hotel for 2 nights. We were promised we would be in the Holiday Village on the 16th June and sure enough we arrived at the HV at the time promised (see forum comments with regards to this).
