Dahab was five days of relaxing, sitting by the ocean, eating, drinking, and smoking sheeshah. It is right on the Red Sea (of Charleton Heston fame, I mean Moses) on the Sinai Peninsula. This is Old Testament land in a big way with the burning bush, and 10 Commandments mountain visitable tourist sites. I did not make it. Perhaps another time.
I wish I had dove while in Dahab. The Red Sea is supposed to be one of the most spectacular diving sites in the world, and Dahab is supposed to be one of the cheapest places to do it. I've lost my certification dive card, and my only options were to do an intro dive (baby dive in 8-10 metres of water in the worst place) or take my open water all over again. To be honest, I should have just taken the course again. It's been years since I dove, Dahab would have been a cheap place to recertify. Oh well.
