... first time I have gone to bed dirty
It was to be an early start in the morning, off to Hurgarda, a resort town on the Red Sea, famed for its diving (I wouldn’t be doing any, forgot my PADI card)
We arrived about 2ish, Mark said it would be a hovel, the worst place we have been to, I asked him if it’s that bad "why are we going there?"

I must say that I didn’t feel very adventurous at all, squashed on my Thomas Cook Airways flight from Gatwick to Hurghada with the package tour hordes. Screaming kids and suburban couples heading off for their fortnight of sun, sand, sea and salmonella, were not my favourite travel companions, but I did admire their bravery ...
