EGYPT & JORDAN | Ep1: Solo Backpacking Egypt 5
UCoH34ICdyyRO9C88UJOEvow

Solo backpacking through Egypt in the first leg of my month long trip as I travel through Egypt & Jordan.

Egypt & Jordan are undoubtedly on most people's travel bucket lists, but I've always had the impression that the majority of people travel there on an organised tour.

So I wanted to give it a go by myself and see what it was like treating it like a normal backpacking trip, staying at hostel and booking everything on the go.

This first episode covers the 3 weeks I spent solo travelling around Egypt.

Starting out in Cairo, I visited the Great Pyramids at Giza as well as exploring Islamic Cairo.

Then I took the train down to Aswan, visited Abu Simbel before boarding a 2 day cruise on the Nile to Luxor.

At Luxor I visited the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and other temples.

Then I went snorkelling and scuba diving in the Red Sea at Hurghada, Sharm el Sheikh and Dahab.

I just love your humbleness and honesty when you admit to being ripped off and pressured into doing activities you didn't intend doing. Great editing job, nice flow with absolutely no "ho-hum" moments. Excellent. Thanks.

Brilliant man, well done. Definitely packed a lot into one video. That diving looked insane. Nice score with the Nile cruise. I did a two-day boat ride down the Nile but it was on a tiny feluca boat, sitting in one spot all day and then sleeping on the bottom of the boat or something like that. Nice to mix things up between hostel life and a bit of luxury. Looking forward to the Jordan vid. By the way I guess we're both in the Caribbean right now. Greetings from Aruba.

Quick note: All the treasures inside the pyramids are NOT in the museum. They are robbed in ancient times time ago. That's why pharaoh burials moved to the Valley of Kings where was more hidden and yet only King Tut tomb survived due to massive land and rockfall in ancient time sealing the entrance.

Egypt is incredible. I dived the Red Sea on a live aboard out of Sharm for two weeks, best diving in the world. Cairo, Karnak Temple, Giza, Valley of the Kings blew me away. Good video, thanks for taking us along.

I've recently been toying with the idea of travelling solo to Egypt but was concerned about the health and safety risks (food poisoning, terrorism, etc.) after hearing of so many negative media stories. This incredible documentary has inspired me to take a chance and start planning my trip. Thank you for being so honest with your reviews and showing the realities of your trip (not just the good stuff). Truly incredible work.
