IS EGYPT SAFE? 👇🏼 (save these tips if Egypt is on your list)
Yes, but it is confronting. The average Westerner will feel out of their element. That slight discomfort aside and providing you are taking normal travel precautions, Egypt is safe. The people are welcoming and warm, the country is beautiful and the history is SO interesting.
Some tips to make your trip as comfortable as possible:
✨ Cover up. As a Westerner, you will attract attention for the sole reason that you look different and people are curious, but you want to limit this attention as much as you can. Wear pants or a long dress/skirt. Cover your shoulders and don’t wear anything revealing.
✨ Be in good company. I’ve been to Egypt twice (once without a guide, once with one) and I will be completely transparent when I say they were two drastically different experiences. With a guide, I was hassled FAR less. But if you don’t want a guide, definitely go with a travel buddy or a group.
✨ Know a few words of Arabic. You’ll get more respect and big smiles from the locals for this. Important ones are thank you (pronounced SHOK-RAN), hello (pronounced SAL-EM) and please (pronounced LAU-SE-MAT).
✨ Don’t let yourself get hassled. Ignore, ignore, ignore. Don’t look at what they’re selling. And get comfortable saying “no” (pronounced LA). There’s also “leave me alone” for when the situation requires some aggression (pronounced CIB-NI LOO-WA-HA-DEE). Definitely dropped that a few times 😂

It’s funny how getting content for Instagram helps you get over any shyness. I got up after a delicious dinner, sat at a clean table with a beautiful background and posed for this picture, oblivious to the other restaurant goers who might have thought it weird. It’s a little daunting at first, but it becomes very freeing

These offering trees can be found everywhere in the mountains. People tie their hopes and dreams tightly in pieces of red cloth willing for the wind and the mountains to take them to the heavens above.
India, you always take my breath away. These past few days in the mountains has been nothing short of pure magic.
Up above the clouds again today, this time headed to the island of Terceira 🛩 Excited to explore the Azores and hopefully get some cool shots with the drone from our hikes. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’ll never get over the thrill of flying. It’s so crazy to me that we all act like it’s so normal but I think it’s insane that we can be above the clouds.
