No, we didn’t just go back to Egypt for a day, this is a photo you may have seen before from our travels last September. On top of Mt Sinai we watched the sun rise and it was a peaceful, beautiful experience. Or at least it should have been. Fighting your way through crowds of […]
Istanbul to Cairo Gallery II
The second (and last) set of photos from our middle east journey are now up on the website, enjoy the trip (the link is over there >>>). At some point next year I’ll put them all together with decent descriptions but for now you’ll just have to guess as to where the shots were taken […]
Istanbul to Cairo – Gallery I
As promised here is the first batch of photos from our recent trip. The gallery is still a little rough, some of the descriptions are wrong and it needs a bit of fleshing out but it’s a start. Enjoy by clicking here.
Being back in the UK has been a bit of a shock to the system. It’s getting cold and dark (12-14 degrees) and it was rainy to boot yesterday. I’m working on photos every day and should have something up this weekend for our trip – I want to get it done before the memories […]
Relaxing at the Red Sea
Today is a free day to relax at Dahab on the shore of the Red Sea in Egypt. I’ve been writing a few things, sorting out money and doing a bit of shopping while Keryn has done a refresher dive this morning and has just set off to do a dive with Tracey off an […]
We are ok
We both fine, nothing to worry about. It was a funny visit.
Just quickly we’re in Wadi Musa ready to visit Petra tomorrow. We visited the Dead Sea this morning and a Jordanian Hospital yesterday. More on that story later.
The day so far has been spent wandering the old city of Damascus. We’ve visited the Umayyad Mosque and walked the Hamideyeh Souk (market) as well as some general walking around the streets. We’re off to a hotel to relax by a pool later this afternoon, it gets really hot here. Yesterday was a long […]
Crossing over to Syria
Today we crossed over from Turkey into Syria and I am writing this in an Internet cafe in the city of Aleppo. We’ve just had dinner (which was filling and tasted great and cost about 2000 Syrian pounds for 9 people, that’s around $40 US including drinks, fantastic). Tomorrow morning there is a walking tour […]
Somewhere in Turkey
We’re currently in an Internet cafe in the town of Kas on the south coast of Turkey. We’re enjoying ourselves and have a good bunch of people to be travelling with. We’ve seen the sights of Istanbul, Gallipoli, Troy and Ephesus so far and tomorrow get to relax on a boat cruising the Med in […]
We’ll be coming around the mountain
We’ll see you in three weeks, it’s off to Istanbul tomorrow for the start of a three week overland trip from the Turkish capital all the way down to Cairo in Egypt. Along the way we’ll be seeing the sights of Turkey, Syria and Jordan. If we find an Internet cafe along the way we’ll […]
