Our last two days in Luxor we left our place by 6:30 AM and headed out to beat the heat. It was actually rather pleasant at that time of the morning. On our first day, we went to Valley of the Kings. You can visit three tombs with the general admission ticket. King Tut’s tomb … More Our Egypt Adventure: Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens
We arrived in Luxor early in the morning. We decided to rest a little before we headed out for the day. In hindsight, that was a mistake. It got very hot very fast and we would have had a better time had we started earlier. Live and learn. Another mistake we made – we took … More Our Egypt Adventure: Day One in Luxor
I’m going out of order for this one. Aswan was our last destination in Egypt. It was also our shortest so I thought it would be good for an afternoon post.

I stopped by my childhood home and took a picture(apparently, they were taking mine as … More Being a Tourist Back Home in Kentucky

So, I will only go with pictures I have taken with my phone and uploaded somwhere. I will also cheat and … More Bloganuary 20: What is Your Favorite Photo You’ve Ever Taken?
