    Hurghada Relaxation

    January 20 in Egypt ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We left ancient Egypt and the Nile behind today. Traveling eastwards, we set our sights on the Red Sea beach resort of Hurghada where we'd be spending the next two nights at an all inclusive (but it's not quite like the all inclusives that one would find in Mexico or the Caribbean). The green fertile lands by the Nile became barren desert and rocks before waters glistened again in front of us.

    Our hotel is part of a set of properties, Empire Hotel. They have a property by the beach that we can access, but our building is otherwise a few minutes further inland. The neighborhood is really quiet, perhaps out of season as it's not so hot that visitors are flocking here. Dinner and breakfast is a buffet affair but nothing too exciting, drinks aren't even included. Nevertheless we were excited to be on the water the next day and snorkelling.

    Red Sea Snorkelling/Beach Day

    January 21 in Egypt ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    A day of doing almost nothing but relaxing and hanging out. Our bus picked us up bright and early for a drive to the marina where a boat waited to take us to Mahmya Beach on Giftun Island. The marina was in a different part of town that had more people in it as well as shops, so we wished we were closer here so we could venture out at night.

    The beach is about a 45 minute ride from the mainland, and then a smaller boat transferred us to the beach due to the shallow waters. Some of us would stay on the beach on sunrise while the rest hopped back on the boat later in the morning for snorkelling. The water was cool but not too cold, but I only stayed in for a few seconds as the lifejacket (I'm not a strong swimmer) was too big, hindering my swimming and the snorkel mask didn't fit properly. Bummer...but my tour mates who did swim out farther saw quite a few fish. From where I was, the water was definitely calmer and prettier than when I was last at the Red Sea in Aqaba in 2014.

    After lunch, my roommate and I went for a walk along the water. There were some pretty shells but there are clear signs forbidding shells and sand .to be removed. Alas, we could only take pictures. Time flew quickly and our day drew to a close before we knew it. On the boat ride back, a few of us settled down at the front of the boat. Cue Titanic moment "I'm flying, Jack!" There's a spot you can stand and get a cheesy photo taken. Yes I did and no, you'll unlikely ever see that photo =P

    More photos to come...having issues getting photos off my phone
