My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Day 01: Cairo, Egypt - The land of the Pharaohs...

"I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense..." - Harold S Kushner

(Kuala Lumpur - Cairo)

It was a full moon over the land of the pharaohs when our plane began to descent for landing at the new Cairo International Airport. The cold October morning air felt liberating.

We were met by our tour guide and were transported in a limousine to the hotel. When we crossed Cairo city, it was still very early in the morning and the traffic jam was beginning to build up. The 5-star Mercure Le Sphinx Hotel was located in the Giza province overlooking two of the three majestic pyramids.

We had to wait for a while for our room to get ready. After a refreshing bath we had our much needed nap to rest tired body and woke up to order room service of steak and sandwiches to fill hungry tummies.

The whole night was spent in the hotel room watching movies on TV.
