Friday, May 13th, 2011

The Sinai Peninsula of Egypt is truly a fascinating place. During our time in the area, we spent a few days near Mt. Sinai and a few more relaxing on the coast of the Red Sea. First, our journey took us from Cairo on a fairly long bus ride to the town of Katreen, near the base of Mt. Sinai and St. Katherine’s Monastery. We slept at a small Bedouin camp and met some other travelers who had hiked to the top of the mountain the night before, starting at 2:00 in the morning. Supposedly this was the best time to hike in order to avoid the heat and also see the sunset from the top of the mountain. We had planned to hike up, but this new twist added a bit of a debate.

The Truth About Travel

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Before our five-month trip to Latin America, we talked a lot about places we wanted to visit and things we hoped to see and do. Conversations we had about our trip always seemed to revolve around sights and activities. People wanted to know what we were going to do with our time. And so we did our best to compile a list of destinations we planned to hit.
