In just a few more days, I’ll be traveling to Egypt with my spouse. We’ll do typical tourist stuff but also spend time visiting in-laws and hanging out at some of my old haunts. I’m really looking forward to the trip.
Azza, my wife, is from Cairo, but we’ll go to lots of off-the-beaten-path type places. For example, she and her family own homes and property in a region called Wadi Gedid, which translates to “New Valley.” To call the place “new” is a misnomer because the area is an ancient oasis in the south-central portion of the country, in a very rural part of “Upper Egypt.”
Since I’m so preoccupied by my upcoming travels, I want to ask the following questions:
What is the coolest trip you’ve ever taken? Where did you go and what did you do there? Did the trip change you in some way?
I’m looking forward to hearing about some of your travels! Thanks very much for sharing!
