A Travellerspoint blog


Final thoughts...

As it turns out a trip can be done successfully with little predeparture planning. Apparently one can also relax while traveling and take naps. Who knew? Perhaps a touch of pre-planning would have discouraged me from coming to this region alone and in the summer. Reading tripadvisor.com may have discouraged me from coming to Egypt at all! Maybe planning is overrated...

I highly recommend Egypt and Jordan as a post break up destination for any single woman who needs an ego boost. If I had a dollar for every man who has proposed to me in the last two weeks...I could head out on my next trip!

Definitely a different culture and way of life. Upside to independent travel is seeing that very clearly. Downside as well? I've definitely had an education into the Muslim world that I didn't expect. There really is a very deep respect for women and religion and a sincere adherence to a way of life that is very different than the US. This is readily apparent even in the most modern cities.

There have been challenges that I didn't anticipate and wondrous sights that exceeded my expectations. As always, the more I travel the more I realize just how much of the world there is to see and how lucky I am to have seen so much of it. See you next trip...
