This week we’ve been staying on an island in the middle of the Nile River. The only way to get there is by a small ferry boat. It’s close to the big town of Aswan but much quieter with two farming villages.
Our apartment in Luxor is very nice and as always we were surprised by how green it is along the Nile River. We later learned that many bedrooms in Egypt have domed ceilings to make the sunlight bounce off. It really does keep those rooms much cooler.
We ran out of time for a full apartment tour but we created this video when we arrived to our new hotel in Alexandria and opened the window and doors. They all face this direction and it’s beautiful.
We’ve just landed in Cairo and will be traveling a lot over the next two weeks. We’re staying in this guest house for the next few days before taking a train to Alexandria.
This is our second time through Athens since we left home last year but the last time we came it was only for a day on a long layover. This time we stayed for 5 days.
We liked Kuala Lumpur so much the first time that we came back for two more weeks.
We went to Thailand to see our foreign exchange student, Mel. The first day in Thailand we went to a mall that was attached to our apartment and we ate some breakfast. I had a cream filled croissant and everybody else had ham and garlic bread and after breakfast we went shopping. On the second…
We’re in Bangkok for a short time visiting Mail. She’s from here and spent a school year with us in Colorado two years ago as a foreign exchange student.
Last week we took a quick trip to the West coast of New Zealand and this is the home we stayed in.
Through a family connection to Antarctica we’re home-sitting in Christchurch while our new friend is traveling overseas. We have a car here so we’ve been able to travel around the South island while we visit for three weeks. This is a tour of the house we’re staying in.
