The European adapters are the ones to take.

TBH if you were that worried about sharks In sharm would you have booked it? You'll be fine.

"got rid of the killer sharks"? How do you propose they might have achieved this? The red sea area is home to numerous types of sharks. Their home, not ours. You may be better off sticking to the pool.

Hi

There is more chance of being run over in the street than being gobbled up by a shark. That should keep you busy for a while ian.

Hi

I believe it is only fair and right, that people are made aware of previous shark attacks in the Sharm area. They can then make their own educated decision regarding entering the water.

There are sharks in the sea, they live there. Generally they make no contact with humans, and mostly they kill only fish, which they eat.

If you're worried about seeing sharks, stay in the pool where the only ones will be inflatable ones!

Great post Barbarah ha ha!

More likely to be ripped off by a taxi driver, than ripped apart by a shark.
