EGYPT & JORDAN | Ep1: Solo Backpacking Egypt

Solo backpacking through Egypt in the first leg of my month long trip 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.
