Impressions of a trip to Sakkara and Giza

No Trip to Egypt would be complete without seeing the The Great Pyramids of Giza. 110 pyramids are known in Egypt although some are more famous than others. They are absolutely the one “must see” if you visit the country.

On our second day of touring, we set out to visit the ancient site of Sakkara, also known as the “The Pyramid of Djoser.” Sakkara is one of the most significant relics of ancient Egypt. It’s important because it pre-dates the more famous and flashy great pyramids of Giza. Sakkara is old school as far as pyramids go, and you can go inside this one.

While our day trip to Alexandria was frustrating because of disruptions “because of the revolution” this day highlighted one of the benefits of traveling to a country in the midst of a revolution: there are virtually no tourists and we had the complex  almost entirely to ourselves.

Marrakesh Express (Romantic vacation)

If you visit the blog regularly you probably remember I recently had a whirlwind trip to Marrakesh, Morocco. Marrakesh is an enchanting place for a romantic getaway.

Here’s an express video trip through Marrakesh. It was shot on location at Riad Farnatchi (where I stayed),

Rost in Translation: First Day in Tokyo

My trip to Tokyo started fantastic much thanks to my friends Shuhei and Alan who hung out with me in Asakusa and showed me a great time. Here’s an image gallery from my first full day in Tokyo.

Bellydancers and Riad Farnatchi: notes from Marrakesh, Morocco!

I’m in Morocco for a few days and doing my best to check out the funky old medina yet avoid the carpet stores. I’ve written about my experiences with them in past in my post for Tablet Talk Magic Carpet Ride. This trip I’m focusing on reviewing bellydancers, sampling hookahs, and watching the snake charmers in the souk.

My base this trip is the fantastic Riad Farnatchi which is owned by a delightful Brit named James Wix whose love of Morocco is infectious.
