Day 7 - Hot Air Balloon & Valley of the Kings

A travel blog entry by arigney87 on May 22, 2015

... rock, and then the walls were shaved, polished, and then painted. This place is probably the most famous in Egypt, next to the Luxor and the Pyramids in Giza, but unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos.

The reason they chose this location was threefold: easy to guard, no risk of flood from the Nile, and limestone rock would keep the tombs cool and dry. (Dry is key because the sandstone will soak up any moisture in the air from the mummified bodies or breathing, ...

... world. A quick stop in Cairo – sadly no sign of the pyramids amid the smog – we arrived back to Heathrow. I bid Dan a fond farewell as he swapped shishas and falafel for bagpipes and haggis, and headed north of the border.

Meanwhile, thanks to the convenient distraction I have created, all the other group members are snapping away! There is ...

... all good and laughs were had, and we were off to our next 91km. Being a non race day, and warnings of misbehaving children we grouped together. Four of us jet off as the 15km pace was freezing us! The nice flat 27km pace did the trick. Minor 90m climb was perfect to warm up those legs. Navigating the town was an adventure, and 6 of us made it to the other side, not without causing quite the stir with construction, donkeys, cars and the dudes with the guns (which ...

Ups and Downs of Luxor

A travel blog entry by travellingshoes on Sep 03, 2014

... an area with 134 pillars of massive size. It is truly an amazing structure, and to have been able to be inside it just made you feel a sense of awe. We then said goodbye to Peter who had been a fascinating guide (he has a masters in history) before returning to the boat for one last massage :) before dinner. After dinner we strolled around the Nile but by now our early morning had caught up with us and it was time to farewell our new Kiwi best mates and hit the ...
