That disgusting moment when surfacing through a cloud of jellyfishes. But I needed fresh air.
The queen (or captain, can‘t decide) watching for dolphins. Successfully!
A short snorkeling trip to the reef around the corner went really lucky. A small group of dolphins appeared right next to our boat. They were fooling around and checking us out for a moment and then they disappeared into the sea.
It was a great moment for us. Especially as we did not expect them. Locals told us to not book one of these full day dolphin sighting trips, because its not likely to see them in the northern Red Sea in February.
So we only did a 3 hour trip with the intention of snorkeling on a riff larger than the ones close to the beach. A nice surprise!
I want summer back. And sea. Looking forward to summer this year. Mediterranean ahead!
Apart from just relaxing and beside from going to the desert, the really big thing about the Red Sea is snorkeling and diving. And thats what I did. Small reefs are easily accessible from the beach or by your hotels boat bridge. Walk 5 Minutes, jump in and enjoy the colours of your local coral reef.
View in southern direction along the Eastern Desert Mountain Range. Next stop (in 700km): Sudan. Still fascinating to me.
Another one from the Egyptian desert (or eastern Sahara).
It somehow blows my mind. 300km of nothing from here, then 10km of Nile valley followed by another 5000km of nothing till hitting the Atlantic coast in Morocco.
A short throwback to my personal break from winter, a few weeks ago. Somewhere in the Egyptian desert. (okay, close to Hurghada)
2018 travel has begun, I was on Mars lately. Okay, not really (sadly). Still on earth but a new environment to me – desert. And I put my feet on a continent I haven’t been before: Africa!
Okay, sounds more dramatic as it was. Decided to enjoy the benefits of summer while having winter in Germany and went to Egypt for a week. As you might know, there is a large conglomerate of package tourism hotels in Hurghada, so no idea of how egyptian this part of Egypt is. Anyway, a full week of 30°C is nothing I would complain about.
