DPJA - Egypt & Jordan, 04APR13

Postby sataimir » Sat Oct 13, 2012 5:05 am

Hello there!

Anyone else planning on joining this one? Would love to get in touch with others on this tour - I'm very nervous of being in Cairo solo before the tour starts...

Cheers

Hi there

I think we are on the same tour!

The Egypt & Jordan Adventure departing Cairo on the 4th April 2013?? :)

I'm flying in to Cairo the morning the tour starts, because I too am a little nervous about being in the city on my own. We will be ok though!! Can't wait to see so many amazing things, looking forward to Petra the most.

Sorry what was your name? Where are you from?

Cheers! Anna

Hi Anna!

My name is Steph, and yes indeed I'm on the tour departing Cairo the 4th of April. I'm from Australia. Where are you from?

I get there the day before, but that was a cheaper flight for me. I'm a bit nervous about being a woman alone in Cairo too, but I've been told by friends and such that so long as I'm not wandering alone after dark I should be ok... so I'm going to transfer to the hotel and have the night in to rest up before the tour!

I'm really excited about Petra, too - it's one of the top places on my bucket list! :) That and Djeser-Djeseru. It's exciting to think, it's only just over 4 months away now!

Look forward to meeting you and sharing some fantastic adventures!

Steph

Hi there,

Just wanted to pop in to say my wife and I have also signed on for this tour. We're from the Canadian Prairies and decided an Egypt adventure would make a good anniversary getaway. We will be landing in Cairo on the 3rd to give us a little extra time to manage the jet lag.

I have never been oversees but my wife has spent time in Tanzania, Zanzibar, and Somalia so although I hear it is customary in Egypt to see the woman walking behind the man...I am thinking I will mix it up a bit and let my wife (Kath) do the leading ;)

We land at about 7:30pm on the third of April. If we are not suffering any travel exhaustion or jet-lag I think we're going to see if we can arrange a short trek out to Dahshur / Saqqara on the 4th.
