Journey to Luxor
I can’t even begin to tell you how nice it was to get out of Cairo and head south! As far as historical significance, Cairo obviously is a spectacular place. Yet, there were constantly locals in your face asking for tips and money. We were bribed by policemen, taxi drivers, and airport workers. I was literally shouting in frustration at people because the whole charade was absolutely ridiculous. It made me want to leave the one place that I had dreamed of seeing my whole life.
Here begins our journey to Luxor. We jammed loads of sites into an entire full day and it was the longest day ever. However, it was by far one of my favorite parts of the trip! First up, Valley of the Kings. These burial grounds are located on the West Banks of the Nile. The hieroglyphics, paintings, colors, I mean… wow!!! Rameses IV, Merenptah, King Tut, and Rameses IX; these tombs were unbelievably extraordinary! This was part of the Egypt I imagined to see!!

Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
