Our First Time in Cairo: the second week of our month in Egypt

We left Dahab in the early afternoon, and made it to our Air BnB in Cairo around 11 PM. The cheapest and most efficient wayContinue reading “Our First Time in Cairo: the second week of our month in Egypt”

A Week in Dahab: the beginning of our month-long adventure across Egypt

Getting to Dahab We arrived in Egypt around 2:30AM after catching a midnight flight from Istanbul to Sharm-el Sheikh with two friends we had met while in Turkey. From the moment we left the airport at Sharm-el Sheikh, we had realized that everything we had read about Egypt on the internet was correct–we would neverContinue reading “A Week in Dahab: the beginning of our month-long adventure across Egypt”

Update from Colombia!

Hey everybody! We finally arrived in Colombia six days ago, after enduring a 25 hour journey. It’s crazy to think that just last week we were wandering the hustle and bustle of the Egyptian city of Cairo.

Must-See Historical Landmarks in Turkey

Ephesus Before departing on our hitchhiking adventure, we rented a car for a few days to check out some historical landmarks that were a bit out of the way of where we planned to travel while hitchhiking.

Krka National Park – An Aquatic Wonderland

Our favorite experience we had while visiting Split, Croatia was our day trip to Krka National Park. We did a tour with Pelican Tours Split, and had the best time!

The Magical Island of Hvar

After spending some time in Split, we decided we wanted to check out some nearby islands, and have heard many good things about the island of Hvar.

Our First Night On The Town In Split, Croatia
