Kentucky Fried Camel in Egypt: My Return to a Country I Never Left

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

“You don’t scream as the camel stands up,” Amina told me with a smile. “It must be your Egyptian blood.” I patted my camel’s neck as he turned towards the pyramids. They stood, three majestic pieces of history, glistening out over the horizon. The sand blew into my eyes as my father barked at me […]

Sunday, May 1, 2016

Shortly after 3 a.m., I was asleep on an overnight train from Cairo — until I wasn’t. Until my 10-month-old son started thrashing in my arms and convulsing.

Who says travel bloggers aren’t journalists? Okay, lots of people, but that doesn’t stop a few of them (us) from putting boots on the ground and getting some real reporting done, outside of listing out our top 10 favorite places to drink around the world, or how you can get paid to travel the world […]

I don’t have a good answer for you (hopefully one day soon), but friend of our site (Leslie Koch) has been on a six-day trek throughout both Egypt and Jordan, checking out the pyramids, visiting Petra, and even meeting John McCain (yeah, I hate when I run into him too during my travels). Check […]

I Urge Immediate Travel To Egypt With Megan Fox

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Though I cannot be held responsible for any adverse outcomes if you follow my advice: I think you should go to Egypt. Not since Ramses II’s coming of age party has there been a better reason to travel to Egypt. What is happening in Egypt (brace yourself for a grandiose claim) could be the most significant […]

Video: See Egypt Like You Never Have Before

Thursday, February 25, 2010

The only thing that bums me out about Josh’s great video on his trip to Egypt is the size of the crowd of tourists everywhere. Are all the sites like this in Egypt?

Basata: So Much More Than Just An Eco-lodge In Egypt

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

When I began to read about Egypt´s first eco-lodge, I thought I would get to share an interesting spot for people to check out. However, upon reading it, I felt an overwhelming sense of awe. By the end of the article, I didn´t know which part to highlight. Was it the pure simplicity of the […]
