Falling in love with Egypt

It was time to officially explore this ancient country. I met up with a friend, who I knew from social media. Always treat people nice because you never know when they will help you out.

Walking around Cairo was like going through a museum. Egypt was conquered by almost all the ancient empires. You see it in the buildings and people. From the Greeks to the Ottomans, this country has been through many changes of power.

Seeing Cairo’s architecture really pulled my heart strings. This place was so mixed with cultures from Europe, Asia and Africa. It was so different; yet, so familiar. It was as if, I was meeting a part of me, I didn’t know about. Egypt felt like an extension of me. I’m a mixture of European, African and Arab; so, was Egypt. Never been to a country that I felt so spiritually connected to. It was similar to the feeling I had the day before; however, more intense. It was more like love.

Walking around Egypt, you can sense the poverty. However, people were still happy. People had giant smiles on their faces. They were enjoying life with what they had. I wish most kids in the western world, learned to appreciate the little things in life.

Can’t tell you how much I love this place. It gives me warm feelings just looking back at the photos. This is one of the few countries, I’m excited to visit again. Egypt is truly a place that will steal your heart, if you are not careful. I have thought about giving everything up to move here. The smells, the history, the people and the architecture has made this history geek happy. Careful when you come to Egypt, you might be terrorized to fall in love again. I have no regrets.

Thank you so much for reading this post. Much love and safe travels!

  1. You are totally right. That is one striking fact about some African countries. With the little they have, they are always happy. Better to be happy in poverty than to be unhappy with riches.
    Nice post

    1. Last year I was thinking about going to resort in Hurghada but after seeing some travel vlogs I changed my kind and would prefer to visit the country my normal way, exploring, meeting locals, so it went back on a list waiting for that perfect time.

  2. I used to think nothing could come close to experiencing a country unless you do it in person. However, the images in your post today bring the “essence” of 🇪🇬 out so well. I 💗 them, so I experienced the country thru your eyes. As you said, even you 👀 at them, and see/feel yourself there. Now, that’s a trip!

    Oh and happy people you say? What a treat to have met so many. Just goes to show, it’s not what we have, it how we view and appreciate what we have. Being blessed by what we have makes us smile. Thanks for sharing!🤗
