CENTRAL AMERICA BACKPACKING TRIP
I went backpacking around Egypt & Jordan for one month by myself.
Egypt & Jordan are undoubtedly on most people's travel bucket lists, but I've always had the impression that the majority of people travel there on an organised tour.
So I wanted to give it a go by myself and see what it was like booking everything on the go, treating it like a normal backpacking trip.
EPISODE 1: EGYPT
Dec 2018 - Jan 2019
This first episode covers the 3 weeks I spent solo travelling around Egypt.
Starting out in Cairo, I visited the Great Pyramids at Giza as well as exploring Islamic Cairo.
Then I took the train down to Aswan, visited Abu Simbel before boarding a 2 day cruise on the Nile to Luxor. At Luxor I visited the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and other temples.
Then I went snorkelling and scuba diving in the Red Sea at Hurghada, Sharm el Sheikh and Dahab.
EPISODE 2: JORDAN
Episode 2 I head inland to Amman and do day trips to the surrounding sites such as the Dead Sea and the roman ruins of Jerash.
Then I have my Indiana Jones moment exploring the ruins of Petra, before finishing up in the spectacular deserts of Wadi Rum.
