Have you thought about asking friends and family to send things like teabags out to you in a jiffy bag? That's how my family sends stuff to me - such as fruit tea, stock cubes, packet sauces etc. It normally takes about 2 weeks to get here and will be opened by customs but doesn't incur customs charges. You will have to collect it from the post office when the postman delivers the note as they like to hand them over to you in person.

Also you might be interested to hear that a branch of Metro Supermarket will be opening in Hurghada in December - and they stock Oxo gravy granules and Weetabix and loads of other goodies.

Hi Sally

LOL...not quite this long..but the game and supplies were most appreciated.

The problem we have is that even though we have been back to the UK several times and family and friends come to visit we still have boxes of clothes and household stuff there...so when they come over or us back...we bring back more of our stuff out.

So that stops us bringing out food treats..we try to but its not always possible.

So its good to know there are kind people like you who are prepared to help.

Its surprising what we miss...LOL.

Thanks Again

Just to let you know, there are plenty of online services available that deliver British things to expats anywhere in the world in case you get really desperate.

I have never tried using them myself, but if you Google 'expat food from uk' then you will find several different options.

We have lived in Hurghada now for over a year and a postal service is non existant, no expats over here has any mail delivered least goodies from back in the UK, we all ask our friends and family to bring things out with them. But it depends on who is coming over and when, so this forum is a great place to ask a favour and make new friends,and also help others who need information about Hurghada.

ps. thanks pink poppy i will PM you look forward to your next visit here.

Dont forget anyone coming here for a holiday who wants information please dont be afraid to ask

Fallenknight
