Don’t Believe The Hype About Egypt Guest Post

Approximately two weeks ago I hurried into cryogenic Wanderlust and after reading a few of Giselle and Cody’s posts I became interested. We exchanged a few emails and I heard about their upcoming excursion I have never been to- Egypt, India, Nepal & Vietnam. I believed that Mindful Wanderlust’s entered on the security of Egypt would be valuable information for any world traveller because they recently seen since Egypt has long been revered among the world’s top attractions.

Here is their post and I do hope you enjoy:

If you’re Somebody Who has ever thought”I would love to Visit Egypt”, Or”Egypt is my dream Holiday”

Ask yourself: What’s stopping you? Seeing Egypt on your life is an aim that is attainable that is absolute.

Think what we hear and see from North America or about the information and we have a tendency to get stuck inside our own bubbles.


I think that individuals dread travelling to Egypt since it is mainly a Muslim nation, and one of the first things that enters peoples minds is terrorism.

Open your mind.

Egypt, such as the millions of Muslims around the world’s people want what most of the worlds people desire. To live in peace. To place food on their tables to their families.

To live in freedom. Most everything that’s fed to us is a negative portrayal of a small number of individuals. The moment we entered the airport, we began receiving welcomes.

“Welcome to Egypt””You’re most welcome” And my personal favorite,”Welcome home.

The people of Egypt are struggling. We feel really under control, and it is contained in one place, although yes there is political unrest. Has had nothing more to do with travelers. The brutal footage you see on the information is replayed, over and above, which makes it look like there is turmoil and a whole lot more violence there is still here.

These individuals are fighting for freedom. We’ve had the joy to talk with some locals about their battle, and we are pleased to support it.

This is Cody’s 2nd time in Egypt, and my 3rd.


We shall definitely, without a doubt, return.

If you would like an experience you’ll never forget, let go of fear, and also research.

From beautiful ancient structuresinto some feluca ride on the river nileinto some traditional Bedouin coffee service, to Egyptian guys seeking to tempt you into their shops, with clever questions such as:”How do I take your cash today?” Or”I do not understand what you want, but I understand I have it”


It may be overwhelming at times In all honesty. There is a trouble, and if you’re a girl, you’ll receive cat called and stared at, but goes quite a ways. In Egypt, the positive always outweighs the negative. We had been invited to some beautiful antique store to sit, chat, and have tea with no word about something that was buying. We heard that the shop’s owner has a pet crocodile named Steve. We did not eat our entire three days in Aswan, known as Panorama, and turned into a beautiful restaurant and memorial along the Nile. Our host was a gentle man, by Hossam’s title, around age 75, using a dry sense of humour.

He gave us his Facebook on our last visit.

We met a beautiful man at The Pyramids selling post cards. We declined his offer, then for whatever reason, quickly changed our minds. We purchased a pack of postcards and made. We probably made his month and phoned him back for a different package. This man gave us zero hassle when we showed no interest in what he was selling.


He was elated, and so real, when we chose to phone him back. We ended up walking shooting photographs with him , and chatting for some time about the condition of Egypt, and also the way it is in fact safe here. He was so full of joy that he managed to talk.

One thing all of us have in common is the need for connection with each other, although we might have differences that most of us tend to focus on.

Faith, sex, race, age, won’t ever distinguish us from becoming human and connected.

Waving smiling at the muslim girl on the boat, sitting together with bedouin kids that are excited to see the photograph of them that was recorded.

All of those passing moments are so significant at least.

So please do not let fear hold you back from doing what you need to do.

You might feel uncomfortable for a time that is small, but you will grow from each experience.
