I have been on the most amazing holiday of my life! I've spent a week on a 5 star cruise around the Luxor area of Egypt. Oh my word, it was just incredible.
The boat was beautiful, my cabin was excellent, the staff were brilliant and the sights and experiences were just astounding. I took more than 400 photos during the 8 days but have pared them down to just a sample.
Philae Temple was probably my favourite. Partly because of the boat rides there and back. Again, the scenary was beautiful.
The last thing I did was an optional extra - a sunrise balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings. I am *so* glad I did this. It was the most amazing part of the whole holiday. There were 32 people in the balloon but we were all awe struck and when the burner wasn't going it was silent. There were about 20 balloons all together - shows how popular it is. I would strongly recommend this to anyone.
I did, naturally, do a little bit of shopping while I was out there but I think I'll leave that and a description of being a woman travelling alone in egypt until tomorrow.
