Just before Easter I went on a week’s holiday to Egypt. I try to do this at least once a year, and always in winter. I live in a place that is actually very cold and very dark during winter, so it makes wonders with a few days of warmth and sunshine. Usually I do not go all inclusive, but for different reasons me and my friend went on such a deal this time. I usually do not, because the food and drinks are usually better in an ordinary restaurant, and I know the local community do not earn anything if every tourist goes all inclusive to a hotel owned by big, international hotel chain. This time it was Hilton who made the profits, but of course, they also create work for egyptians, even if it is underpaid.
I am sure to go to Egypt for vacation again, because such a trip gives some necessary vitamins of all kinds. But I never go during summer, because then it is too hot there, and too nice in Norway. Here is a link to some more pictures from Sharks Bay, which is located just outside Sharm El-Sheikh, and also a link to my Egypt photo galleries.
By the way, anybody knows the name of this flower? It was trees with big, purple or pink flowers and I have never seen this before.
