Traveling to Egypt was a huge culture shock for me!! It seemed like everything we do here in Canada they do the opposite, it was a pretty crazy experience! Being a blonde haired blue eyed female didn’t really work in my favor. (I was called “Shakira” many times by the locals; I thought maybe it was because she was a pop idol to them. My tour guide told me it’s because she’s a woman, they love woman. :P) Like always though, I embraced the bizarre, took in all the culture and unique experiences.
One thing I found shocking while we were in Egypt was the fact that it was so COLD! I’m not joking, it wasn’t below freezing but there definitely were times that it felt like it! Most hotels only had air conditioners and very thin windows, I recommend bringing warm clothes if you visit around Christmas time!
Thankfully (insert sarcasm), before we left Thomas had assured me it wouldn’t be cold there and honestly I had no doubt it my mind that it would be, it’s the desert right?
Well, unfortunately we were both WRONG!
Before you start thinking I had a horrible time in Egypt just listen. :)
Egypt was absolutely beautiful for what it had to offer, many unbelievable sites and so much history.
My inspiration for this post was looking back at a video (below) a fellow traveler on our tour made. It’s funny how sometimes in life you can be faced with certain challenges and hardships that may make a certain situation seem not so ideal. Yet when you look back, depending on what you choose to hold on to / remember, it could have been one of the best times of your life!
Regardless of any certain feelings I felt on my adventure through Egypt and Jordan during said hardships I had an amazing time, I got to try many different kinds of food, see some pretty epic sites and make some new traveler friends!
I am a positive person so I don’t like to waste my time on the negative parts of life. I love to embrace the positive and I truly believe there is a positive to every negative!
I think you should definitely watch our amazing adventure through Egypt and Jordan, you won’t be disappointed! Kjetil did an amazing job filming throughout our trip as well as an amazing job putting it all together! ^_^
Come join me on this epic Adventure!
