One thing i really like after crossing the Israeli border and driving in Egypt towards Nuewba, is this 'Fjord', Yeah, thats how everyone call it. Actually its kind small and amazing lagoon, I always like to stop there and relax for a short time. By the lagoon on the road there is a small cafe' of a beduin or egyptian (can't remember its name) where you can have some coffee, listen to Arab music and relax.
The road between Nuweiba and Dahab has just been resurfaced and it is such a pleasant drive. The road winds past the mountains and valleys and rises from sea level to over 800 metres.
