As a kid, you study the Egyptians countless times at school, so how chuffed do you think I was when, in May 2008, I realised a childhood dream of mine - to go inside a pyramid... I had 48 hours in Cairo and a hotel inspection list as long as my arm, but I had to see those pyramids. Being able to walk around inside, just me and my guide, was incredible - even if the stench of ammonia and the 40 degree + heat was unbearable. I was beside myself with excitement! On that trip I also got to see the Spinx, some beautiful hieroglyphics (which have always fascinated me) and the legendary burial mask of Tutankhamun. I barely scratched the surface of this magical country, but it just made me want to go back for more and more and more. And I will!
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
