Ruins: The pyramids of Giza

After going around the ground site of Giza, we finally made it to the pyramids. They were completely out of this world. Makes you really think twice about humanity and all of our achievements.

All I could remember that day, was it being really hot. Finding water was somewhat a problem because you had no choice but to buy overpriced water from the street vendors. Make sure to double check, if the bottle has been opened or not. You don’t want to be drinking water from the nile. Haha no joke, it’s an actual thing here.

There were a lot of guards in the area. My local friend and I had to pretend we didn’t know each other because of local laws. A local woman can not show male tourists around, unless she is a tour guide. Made the whole situation awkward. Still with all the guards, there were people climbing the pyramids. As seen in the picture above.

As seen in the picture above, you can easily climb the pyramids. Of course, I wouldn’t do it because I don’t want to spend a night in an Egyptian jail. Unfortunately, this historic site has become a magnet for littering. There were a lot of empty water bottles thrown on the floor.

There’s always something special about being in the place you read growing up in history books. The feeling is out of this world.

You know, I had to do the sphinx tourist shot. I don’t normally do things but hey, I’m in Giza.

Also, had to throw in a selfie too. Can’t tell you all how much I dislike selfies but, I was really riding the tourist vibe.

We walked around some more and found a little tomb with hyroglifics. Really wish we were able to read this ancient language. The stories this tomb had to tell us. We won’t be able to pass it on. It’s crazy to think that this little tomb was over 2 thousand years old.

Thank you for reading. Much love and safe travels!

Next week, I will be going inside the pyramids and share some history on the structures!

Add yours

  1. I love these photos. Most photos you see of the pyramids are so edited that they don’t seem real. In your photos it feels more like I’m there looking at some ruins 🙂

    I’m not fond of selfies either. When traveling, I don’t want myself even photographed in the scene, I want the site itself to show.

  2. I understand. People have differing opinions about inserting themselves in the scene, that’s for sure. I have a friend that inserts he and his wife in every photo he takes. Wherever they go…out to eat, seeing some exhibit or place….there are separate photos….her eating, him eating, her in front of the exhibit, him in front of the exhibit, etc…..each step of their journey. 🙂

  3. Wow, I wish I had known about your blog when I was a Geography/World History teacher! So much my students could have learned from your photos and commentary. The ancient world is still so much with us. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

  4. A great post about Giza from the tourist angle! Packed with practical advice as well as history … I wonder how long they will survive so many tourists?

  5. This is so neat! I absolutely hate that people are littering tho! Come to think of it I hardly ever take selfies when I’m out somewhere I get so captivated by the place I just shoot the scenery!

  6. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few p.c. to pressure the message house a bit, however other than that, that is fantastic blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  7. I like the helpful information you supply on your articles.

    I will bookmark your blog and test once more right here regularly.

    I am fairly sure I’ll be told many new stuff proper right here!
    Good luck for the following!
