You cannot go to Egypt and not visit the great pyramids of Giza. They are an absolute must. The size is amazing and overwhelming to the eye. Such good, positive energy at that location.

Alexandria is a port city located on the Mediterranean Sea in northern Egypt founded in 331 BCE by Alexander the Great.  I recommend taking a tour by car or bus to visit this historical beauty.

The Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, known commonly as the Egyptian Museum or Museum of Cairo, in Cairo, Egypt, is home to an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities. It has 120,000 artifacts.   When I went in 2018, they allowed you to take photos inside but make sure that the rules have not changed if you attend.

A beautiful country with welcoming arms!  A great way to have fun and meet new people is to attend parties and festivals. Wit the live music and food, it’s never a dull moment.
