  • Is Egypt safe for women? This is a question I’ve gotten a lot during my time here and my answer is YES! (Save this post if you’re planning a trip soon!)
💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏼
Is it more conservative, yes. Should you dress more modestly, yes. Will you be haggled, yes. But never once did I feel endangered in the country. Like any country as a tourist you will stand out but a few ways to draw less attention to yourself are:
.
🗿Covering up. Although we were told you could wear anything (within reason) we chose cover our shoulders and knees as much as possible to out of respect for the Muslim culture
.
🗿Keep your cameras tucked away in a bag until ready to use them to draw less attention to yourself. I always travel with a mini backpack for a day bag
.
🗿Rent a guide!!! THIS IS MY NUMBER ONE TIP FOR EGYPT! Of course you could do it on your own but with any country so rich in history I tend to prefer to pay a guide. Plus when you have someone local with you who can speak the language it makes a huge difference! Our guide Sam from @traveltalktours was the best guide I’ve ever had... EVER!

  • IS EGYPT SAFE? 👇🏼 (save these tips if Egypt is on your list)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes, but it is confronting. The average Westerner will feel out of their element. That slight discomfort aside and providing you are taking normal travel precautions, Egypt is safe. The people are welcoming and warm, the country is beautiful and the history is SO interesting.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some tips to make your trip as comfortable as possible:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Cover up. As a Westerner, you will attract attention for the sole reason that you look different and people are curious, but you want to limit this attention as much as you can. Wear pants or a long dress/skirt. Cover your shoulders and don’t wear anything revealing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Be in good company. I’ve been to Egypt twice (once without a guide, once with one) and I will be completely transparent when I say they were two drastically different experiences. With a guide, I was hassled FAR less. But if you don’t want a guide, definitely go with a travel buddy or a group.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Know a few words of Arabic. You’ll get more respect and big smiles from the locals for this. Important ones are thank you (pronounced SHOK-RAN), hello (pronounced SAL-EM) and please (pronounced LAU-SE-MAT).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Don’t let yourself get hassled. Ignore, ignore, ignore. Don’t look at what they’re selling. And get comfortable saying “no” (pronounced LA). There’s also “leave me alone” for when the situation requires some aggression (pronounced CIB-NI LOO-WA-HA-DEE). Definitely dropped that a few times 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Египетский рогель 👳 то бишь мужчина
⠀
Какой он? Загорелый мачо или заботливый семьянин до мозга костей?
⠀
Скажу вам так - это жгучая смесь,  соединение двух этих характеристик в одном флаконе.
⠀
Ни для кого не секрет,  что египетские мужчины темпераментные,  горячие и безумно ревнивые.
⠀
До знакомства с мужем,  я была уверена,  что египтяне просто заядлые ловеласы и точка. После замужества для меня открылась совершенно другая сторона жизни и поведения египетянина: любовь к семье, уважение к старшим,  и безумная привязанность к матери.
⠀
Нет, египтяне не маменькины сыночки (хотя всякое случается, конечно)
Они просто очень любят своих матерей и всегда с трепетом заботятся о них.
⠀
Мой муж прежде,  чем жениться на мне, спросил одобрения матери и старшего мужчины в семье. Потому что так принято. Это высшая степень уважения.
⠀
Египтяне очень любят детей (как своих, так и чужих), держат под контролем семейные расходы и решают все проблемы самостоятельно.
⠀
Иногда можно подумать, что они совсем нерасточительные и, возможно, даже жадноватые, но на самом деле, египетские мужчины не любят сорить деньгами, и сто раз посчитают, нужна ли им та или иная покупка, либо можно подождать и сэкономить в дальнейшем.
⠀
А ещё египтяне очень любят покушать, и ужин обязательно должен состоять из трёх и более блюд. Ну это уже культура...
⠀
А какой национальности ваш мужчина?

  • 📚 La meravigliosa e maestosa Bibliotheca Alexandrina, realizzata nel 2002 dallo studio di progettazione norvegese @snohetta (vincitore del concorso/bando ad hoc).
È stata immaginata come ideale rifondazione e rinascita della mitica Biblioteca fondata da Alessandro e continuata dai Tolomei.
L’edificio è rivolto verso il mare ed è circondato da un bacino d’acqua artificiale, proprio a simboleggiare un sole ☀️ che sorge dall’acqua 🌊. Ιl tetto inclinato consente l’uso indiretto della luce solare nella maggior parte dei locali della biblioteca, e allo stesso tempo fornisce alle persone all’interno la visuale sul mare. ^
“La sua vasta forma circolare accanto al porto circolare richiama la natura ciclica della conoscenza, fluida nel tempo.” ^
Sulle pareti esterne in granito grezzo sono incisi ideogrammi tratti dagli alfabeti antichi e moderni di tutte le lingue del mondo!
Oltre alla biblioteca stessa con la sala di lettura più grande al mondo, la struttura contiene anche altre funzioni culturali ed educative, il centro congressi, numerosi musei, tra cui un museo delle scienze e della calligrafia, un planetario, una scuola di informatica e strutture di conservazione.

Qualche cifra:
- 40.000 metri quadrati (69.000 se si considerano tutti i piani)
- 13 piani nei quali si trovano 3.500 posti di studio
- 8 milioni di volumi, 50.000 carte, 100.000 manoscritti, 30 banche dati, 10.000 edizioni rare, 200.000 dischi e nastri musicali, 50.000 video .
Stra merita una visita!

  • Worlds. COOLEST. Little girl. You get in the dirt and jump in the water. You cover our entire body and clothes in finger paints. You dance your heart out with no music playing. And you creatively draw and color outside the lines. You touch and pick flowers. You gaze at other living creatures in complete awe. You love every single person in the world. You wake up excited to start your day. You know magic when you see it. Your straight and honest as can be. You ask questions without any consideration and you just be. You innately know how to thrive and make me the proudest mommy in the world. I love you little girl! #momlife
