It's the beginning of summer in Egypt and I have one last slot to go for a family vacation before we bid farewell to Egypt after our three long years in Cairo. I thought of going to Taba or Dahab in Sinai but it's not quite safe lately over there since the revolution. We have seen enough of the beaches and we did the Nile Cruise as well. Where shall we go?
After much thought, I decided to bring Irene and Le Le to the Bahariya Oasis and sleep under the open sky in the White Desert. I have been there once (see here) and I must say that it was one of the most exceptional places I have been in my life. We could go to beaches anytime anywhere but there may not be another chance ever for us to visit the White Desert again.
Le Le enjoyed playing with the sand all day long but Irene was a little uncomfortable sleeping over in the desert for two days without proper toilets and all the creature comfort. On the last day of the 4D3N trip, we stayed at the International Hot Spring Hotel in Bahariya, which is a simple and nice place run by a German with his Japanese wife. Unfortunately, they were away in Germany during our trip and we did not have the opportunity to meet them.
Here is the photo album to share!
