Our Best – and Worst – Accommodations in Egypt

Our Best - and Worst - Accommodations in Egypt

Egypt is definitely an impressive, surprising and overwhelming country. Just as extremely different – in a positive and negative way – as our memories of the Pharaonic country are, was our experience with the accommodation on site.

Vegan in Egypt

Vegan in Egypt

When asked for the most vegan-friendly places in our travel community on Facebook, one country rarely appears in the comments: Egypt. Completely unjustified – in our opinion. Because in the two months we have traveled criss-cross through the land of the Pharaohs, we feasted absolutely deliciously on falafel, foul, date cookies, fresh fruit, koshary, cashew ice cream, caramel latte with cashew and almond milk, tahina, baba ganoush and hummus and did not have to go hungry at all! What is also special here is that you get almost all of these goodies for just a few pennies. How and where exactly, you will get to know here. Continue reading “Vegan in Egypt”

With 40 percent forest cover, it is after all the most densely wooded of the Canaries. After El Hierro and La Gomera, La Palma is also the third smallest Canary Island. For the most part spared from mass tourism, many places on the island have retained their original character. Continue reading “La Palma: La Isla Bonita”

La Gomera: After El Hierro it is the second smallest of the Canary Islands.
