since i love everything about history, so as i grow up on reading lots of stories about the Egyptian history and pyramids mystery it spark inside me that one day i will experience that beauty by my own eyes. beside that we grow up on Egyptian soap opera and movies, so their culture and people were so familiar to us. 

after Egyptian visa became some how accessible, i still kept postponing my Egyptian travel for later because Egypt is so huge and so many things on my mind to tick it off so its really hard to experience everything in one go. 

its July 2021, i got suspended from traveling because of the pandemic. i decided to not postpone it anymore, its happening yes i am heading to Egypt.
