Walk Like An Egyptian

Recently, myself and my boyfriend jetted off to Hurghada in Egypt for a two week holiday. It was absolutely stunning and I took so many pictures so I thought it would be nice to document it here on this blog!
We stayed in a hotel called Premiere Le Reve, which was one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed at (it was definitely a 'pinch me' moment). Our first few days were spent sunning ourselves by the pool and taking strolls along the beach. Unfortunately, but around the third day, I got incredibly ill due to a mixture of things, and ended up actually being bed-ridden for most of the remainder of the holiday! I did manage to force myself on one of the excursions that we had planned, and so I managed to visit the Temple of Karnak, which was incredibly beautiful, and cross the Nile in a sailing boat before I was too ill to carry on with any of the other sights. Luckily, all wasn't lost and I managed to recover two days before we were due to fly home, so we spent them swimming in the Red Sea looking at all the exotic fish, which was actually a massive achievement for me as I'm not a strong swimmer and I get very nervous in the ocean! My boyfriend did go snorkelling by the coral reefs as well, which looked incredible, but I was too ill (and too scared of the sea) to go with him! One thing that I'll always remember about this holiday though is how incredible the hotel staff were. They looked after me so much and did so many things that they weren't required to do. They really tried to prevent my illness from ruining our holiday and they were so incredibly friendly and polite. I would 100% recommend checking out this hotel if you ever visit Hurghada!
Regardless of the illness, I had a lovely time and would love to go back to experience Egypt properly!
