Travel Thursday: Hurghada Egypt

September 30, 2010

 

Last week our Egypt trip started in Cairo, and then we headed to Hurghada on the Red Sea for rest and relaxation. We flew from Cairo to Hurghada and headed to our inclusive resort, the Sheraton Soma Bay.

This was our first time staying at an all inclusive and it was a much needed few days of nothing! We didn’t leave the resort at all and just enjoyed sun, sand, snorkeling and the food.

We enjoyed snorkeling on a reef right off the dock, read a few books, and even got our traditional Thanksgiving.

Favorite Part: Enjoying a few days of nothing!

 

Not So Favorite Part: Egyptian Wine, it is really bad. :(
