Looking to plan your next tours in Egypt once...............

the present restrictions are removed?

.

As regular readers will have seen, we have just come back (Mon 1st July) from a 28 day stay in, nominally, Luxor, but we had a couple of ‘side trips’ by road with a licensed company This gave us the help of the Tourist Police for navigation between the sites between Luxor & Cairo.

A quick précis of our travels is at …tripadvisor.com/tripwow/ta-079f-24ac-e6f6…

Thanks to Su at http://egyptsites.wordpress.com/ for many of the ideas as to where to go.

Photos of the places visited are at the usual place:- flickr.com/photos/…

Reviews etc. will follow, but the one thing we each did bring back was a stinker of a cold, so it might take a few weeks!

Sorry to hear you are both under the weather you need to force liquids, preferably of the Scottish kind.

Just when I was thinking that it was a long time since anyone had posted a TripWow! Many thanks, I look forward to reading your reviews now that I have seen your pictures ...

ras2 has the right idea - hot toddies!

Nice pics, eLaReF.

Get well soon :-)

If you have come back with respiratory symptoms perhaps you should see a doc and let them know you were in Egypt long enough to have definately caught it there.

The Middle East Repiratory Illness, caused by a pretty noxious little virus is not to be messed with (its a relative of SARS..). Better to check it out and have it dismissed than assume its just a cold??

No assumption that Egypt is a hot bed of virulent illness, (in fact I think most cases are being reported from Qatar to Jordan, not as far West as Egypt..) but check it out just the sort of thing the travel medicos tell you to do if you have been overseas, or sharing air on international flights.

Been to the doc and did exactly what you say

Now on Anti-Biotics.

But I still like the hot toddie concept!

Now who suggested the hot toddies weren't part of the treatment ?? :-)

Its well known that all microbes, viruses included can't stand alcohol. Thats why its in the hand sanitiser.

Much better if applied internally in the form of a well aged example of a top distillery's finest work..

Looks like you had a busy trip!! I know how you feel as I have come back from Luxor with horrible cold viruses too!! Knowing you're a Scotsman and will possibly like a whisky toddy, if (like me) you don't like whisky, try a dark rum toddy with blackcurrant Beechams/LemSip and some honey!!
