  • Saint Katherine Town

    Saint Katherine town is actually just like a small hamlet along the high plateaus in the South Sinai Peak but since the brisk tourist trade centering around the Monastery and Mount Sinai, it has grown bigger. Saint Katherine started from the Monastery, which was made in the 4rth Century along the site where the biblical burning bush was located and...

  • Desert flowers

    We've been so surprised to find these incredible cyclamen flowers in this arid landscape. You wouldn’t believe that such beautiful flowers can resist among the stones. Seems almost a miracle.

  • Visa

    The first two times I visited Egypt I flew in to Hurghada and then there was no problem to buy the visa at the airport. The third time I came from Eilat and entered Egypt at Taba. If you are going only to Sinai it is okay without a visa (at least for Swedish citizens), but if you are going to see more of Egypt you need a visa, and that you can’t...

I was happy to travel in a small group of four persons. Together with the driver and the guide it made six. On the way we could make our own trip. We were very lucky to share the same wishes...

  • Returning of Chris with her camel

    We sat at the Bedouin encampment, drunk our tea and stared at the desert till we saw a black spot. The spot was growing and approaching. And then we recognised Chris our fellow-traveller, who was on a cameltrip for 2 days. We were happy she was back and could join our crew of the cruiser again.

    One of the two young Bedouin women, who offered us a cup of tea in a tin, when we came down from the Hathor Temple, was wearing a beatifull traditional veil. The veil was nicely decorated with embroidery.And also she liked to be at a picture. A third woman came along and was disappointed we did take quick enough a picture of her.
