OK, lay down your weapons folks, it's just a question and a comment and not an attack against anyone.
Everyone has their own style of travel, and nobody can really say what or who is right or wrong.
Personally, I have a long list of places on this planet that I have visited and yet a longer list of places I want to visit. The idea of a time share or any regular visit to the same place is just not in my makeup. I do beleive that familiarity will breed contempt. So, I do not think I have ever wished to go to the same place time and time again. Maui, Hawaii is the place that I have visited the most number of times. Love it there, but after several visits it loses its appeal as a Holiday destination....for me.
While reading the many posts on Luxor, this notion rings in my ear. I ask, after several visits to Luxor is this place still held in the same regard as the first time you visited? Probably not, as you have gotten close enough to see through the makeup and notice the pimples and the warts.
So, I offer this bit of advice to anybody who is new to this Forum. First, remove the outliers...that is take away the rave reviews that may or not be genuine, and take away the worst reviews which may also be tainted. Then take the rest and just use them as helpful tips and suggestions rather than absolute truth and gospel. After all, they are just opinions -- and there are as many opinions in the world as there are people.
Remember that each of us is different in almost every way and just because someone loved or hated the location does not mean the same will happen for you.
I'm going to Egypt for the first and perhaps only time, and I plan to have a wonderful time and fully expect that will be the outcome.
We will see upon my return whether I am a "Rosy Glasses" (naive)kind of guy or not. No matter what my experience and what I say about it when I return, does not mean that you should assume that the same will happen for you.
Do yourself a big favor, Use this Forum for ideas and tips, but discount all of the extremes and do not listen to the sreaming heads on either side of the issues.
