From Cairo to Abu Simbel

From Cairo to Abu Simbel

After Cairo, we wanted to spend some days at the Red Sea relaxing on the beach. The kids loved the beach and playground right outside our room … we had itchy feet as Upper Egypt and Sudan were waiting.   The route we wanted to take through the mountains was...
Farewell to Cairo

Farewell to Cairo

  A cruise with a Falukha on the Nile is an absolute “must”! It is impressive how fast the city noises vanish and then there is only wind and water.   Having the car back, this obviously means that our “itchy feet” need a cure and we...

  Whence the Slow Donkey reference? The donkey bit has nothing to do with any misperceived stubbornness from Anne nor any physical attribute of mine. Our tractor-like Land Cruiser 76 series 4.2 diesel station wagon is slow (but oh so steady) and is disparagingly...

All’s well that ends well!

All’s well that ends well!

“Traffic police take 100 pounds.” Mazar and I have lunch on a terrace in Aswan with a view of the Nile. There must be tables for at least fifty people, but we are the only guests. The tourist industry in Egypt has completely disintegrated and independent travellers...
Egypt to Eilat

Egypt to Eilat

It was time to  move on again , the streets of Dahab even more disserted  than usual , the morning air cool , the sun still hiding behind some of the buildings , I packed the last few smalls onto Victoria . We rode out and into the Sinai , with the mountains on both...
A Lindikhaya Clandestine

A Lindikhaya Clandestine

        So this was it, the end of the road for me. It had begun on the Nile in dusty Khartoum and finished here in a small corner of chaotic Addis Ababa in a gracious home with a sheltered jasmine scented garden alive with honey birds that once had...
Dahab

Dahab

The ride up to Dahab was one of my more relaxed times on the scooter , we had a short distance to ride and time on our side a rare  combination on this trip ,  so it was all about soaking up the Sinai with her open display of natural beauty . I rode watching and...

The ride started early and within no time I was riding through the town of Suez in search of the tunnel that would take me across to the Sinai , and to the road that would lead to Sharm El Sheikh. I felt that I  needed to get 440 kilometres done to reach our...
