Those of you (both of my readers) who may have had your doubts about me still being alive don't need to hold your breath anymore. I came back in one piece and yes it was fantastic!


Before departure I promised to post a checklist of all the stuff I took with me to Egypt. Well finally here it is.

I was also thinking about taking an electricity adapter, but I have discovered that I don't need one.

Here is a cool page where you can check electricity and socket types for every country in the World: http://users.pandora.be/worldstandards/electricity.htm.


Very useful!

I wanted to suggest condoms but then i noticed you listed that. So i suggest a warm winter coat. you know you can never be too safe;)

Welcome back, hope you had a great time in Egypt. Can't wait to see some of the pics which I'm sure you have penty of.

@Kagemonsteret:
We also went as high as 2800m. I have to say that long sleeves indeed were a very nice thing at that time.
No need for a winter coat though. :)

@Jose:
I have around 1000 photos and generally I am not very pleased with them. I guess partially the sun is to blame. Strong sun directly overhead doesn't make to good photo conditions.
Of course some of the photos turned out just fine.
