The second day of my stay in Cairo was something special – time to explore the pyramids of Giza and Saqqara. Seeing this Ancient Wonder of the World. Saying that I was excited would have been the understatement of the year.
After the rather comfortable and shortish (6 1/2 hours) bus journey I was finally in Cairo. A place that was high on my bucket list. I was happy that I made it.
After the late night at the pool party I did not go diving, and I took it very slowly. I managed to get breakfast and then took advantage of the location of my room. Off to the pool for a long swim, and returning to my room and balcony to stay there until lunch to read a book. Boy, it felt good to be lazy.
Once again not being able to sleep in I was up at 7am. Quickly freshen up, a quick breakfast and off I was to head to the Mr. Dive centre to my long awaited dive day trip. During my first trip to Sharm in 2015 I was diving 7 out of 8 days I was in Egypt. Diving there is just great, and beats diving in a German lake with visibility of 0,50m or 2m, while it is cold.
Even though I was in bed very late I didn’t want to miss breakfast. So I got up just before 9:30am, well, because food is only served until 10am. Sleep is overrated anyway.

Due to a rather stressful year I decided on a whim to book a last-minute trip to Sharm El Shiek after founding a very good deal online (yes, indeed an AI package…). Yes, I wanted to retrun to Egypt after nearly two years.
After a rather exhausting day taking advantage of my legs it was rather challenging getting out of bed. Well – I somehow managed to get up, pack my bag, check out of the lovely hotel and use the storage room to leave my bag there for the day. And I was out to walk to the Old Town again at 10:30. For me this is a big success on a Sunday morning….
