Greetings from Egypt!
Greetings from Egypt!
How is it possible that it’s been a year since I was here last and how is it possible that even though this is my 21st trip to Egypt (!), it’s still new and amazing?
But that’s the nature of this place. Everything we’re seeing is thousands and thousands of years old, but the mysteries are still fresh.
Mysteries such as: Who built the Pyramids? How did they get these huge stones to this place (some of which weigh over 2 tons) when they know they came from Aswan, which is an 8 hour train ride away? And how did they cut the stones with such laser-like precision that they fit together perfectly with no mortar?
Riding camels to the Pyramids is always so much fun – they’re so sweet. And of course it’s so wonderful to be here with my beloved Richard. This is his fifth trip to Egypt and he’s become as fascinated as I am with all things Egyptian! What a wonderful thing to have in common.
And of course no trip to Egypt is complete without going to the Egyptian Museum, it’s so incredible, including the treasures of King Tut. And next year, the new Grand Egyptian Museum is scheduled to open in October (it was delayed because of Covid). I’m so excited about that for next year.
Tonight we watched the amazing Sound and Light show at the Pyramids and Sphinx. It’s so dramatic, it’s reminiscent of The Ten Commandments. I love this photo that Richard shot – the Sphinx just looks otherworldly.
One of the best parts for me is being with this amazing group of people. We are all different ages, races, sexes, and nationalities, but with a commonality of being fascinated by this amazing place. It’s so much fun to experience this with other adventurers.
And as usual, the Egyptian people are so warm and welcoming. They always ask, “Where are you from?” and when I say “America,” they always reply with a similar response – “We love Americans!”
This year’s tour sold out and we’re already planning the trip for next year. If you have any interest at all in coming on this amazing trip, click here to get on our wait list and we’ll send you all the information as soon as it’s available. (When you click on the link, you’ll automatically be added to our wait list, then you can read more about our Egypt trips).
I already can’t wait to come back again!
And one of the things that is so wonderful is that many of the people on the trip have done a Soul Adventure. Listening to them talk to the ones who haven’t about how it totally transformed their lives is just so cool to listen to.
If you’d like that same kind of transformation, click below and speak with one of our Soul Guides – they’ll engage with you in deep conversation, then they’ll custom design a retreat designed to take you from where you are to where you want to be.
Sending you so much love from fabulous Egypt!
