Highlights: Cancelled ferry and long travelling day
A disappointing day. We got up had breakfast and were ready to go at 7.45 am however the fates had other ideas. The authorities decided the winds were too strong for the ferry so our 5 hour travelling time was changed dramatically upwards with a bus trip now needed. We ended up leaving around 11 am and got into Dahab at midnight. The long trip was necessary as we had to go back up to Cairo and cross over the Suez Canal to get to over destination by then backtracking.
A long travel day but these things happen. As far as I’m concerned I’ve seen the temples, the pyramids, slept and swam in the Nile, ridden donkeys, camels and ATVs the rest of the trip is mostly the relaxing on the beach part so no big deal for me with we have longer travel days. ‘
