Sinai Desert, Egypt


Starry Sky, Sinai Desert, Egypt

Our trip into the desert started with a fairly bumpy, but very fun quad bike ride (probably the highlight of the whole week). We made a quick stop half way into the journey at what is known as 'Echo Valley' where a larger group of smaller groups met to hear a fairly impressive echo of names and phrases that were shouted after a countdown from three. It was also the perfect time to rehydrate and readjust the provided scarfs that stopped you from inhaling any dust. The guides did well at telling us where we were and what we were doing in both English and Russian. However, Echo Valley is supposed to be quite historical, so it might've been interesting to be told a thing or two about it's history. Below is a photo from Echo Valley - a seven shot panorama!

At the next stop, we were taken to an area that was called the 'Oasis' where we were given water. Here, we were also taken on a quick camel ride and introduced to three other Egyptian men living in the area. The language barrier made things a little awkward at times but they were friendly and entertaining. Because of the awkwardness, I think I missed out on a fantastic photo so, in the future, I will have to just go for it!
