The Egypt I Knew: When Western Women Were Welcomed

Giza Pyramid_Patti_Morrow

It was one of those milestone birthdays, over ten years ago. One of those times when you want to do something unique that will provide a lifetime of memories. Some call such places a “bucket list.” For a long time, Egypt had been at the top of mine. And so I took off from that runway in Boston, as excited as a school girl on her first date. Even my extensive research and wildest dreams would not adequately prepare for the sights I was about to see.

  1. Thank you for this gem! Since I never made it to Egypt, I’m glad that someone who could write so well about this fascinating country did!

  2. Wow! Believe it or not, I don’t stumble upon many travel stories on Egypt. Most of the things I read are focused on Europe or Asia, so this is a welcome break! I would love to visit. I never knew that you could climb a tunnel into the King’s Gallery, but you better believe I want to see it for myself. Hopefully it’s still available to the public (people are so anal about safety measures now…where’s the fun in that?). Thank you for your post and for shedding some light on other “things to do” aside from the famous pyramids!

      Egypt is one of the most amazing places I’ve ever visited. It was the top of my bucket list for a long time. I had to keep pinching myself when I was there — it was like stepping back into history. If you get the opportunity, go!
