Gigal park is such a strange but great spot.
I just booked a flight for Egypt for new years. I'll spend about a week there. My wife had a job opportunity in Cairo last year, but I had no interest in living there, but I am excited to visit. I plan to go to Jordan pretty soon as well. I have a friend working there and through my wife's work they have a safety course for traveling in dangerous areas that we need to take. It sounds interesting, things like what to do if your driver gets shot and dealing with terrorism.
The place I haven't been that ive always wanted is UAE. I'm going to get over there soon as well. I'm pretty happy to be living in Ethiopia for a few years. They have so many direct flights for cheap to places I want to go. I'm planning for my birthday in February to go to seychelles or one of the other islands in that area. Having been stuck in a country with a closed border I might go a little nuts with travel for awhile.
Great pictures and thanks for sharing. Did you venture out of Cairo? We booked a trip for this spring to Egypt and we're going to hit quite a bit, going all the way down to Abu Simbel. We have a couple days there before we fly down to Luxor and so one of the days we were going to take a tour down to Amarna, which is really isolated and takes about 4 hours driving south to get there. That's the one I'm most concerned about, especially when Ron is talking about "what to do if your driver gets shot." It would just be us with a driver.I was in Egypt this spring(and UAE). While they were cool to visit I probably won't go back. Cairo is the only place I've been that seems like it could erupt into civil war at any moment. It has massive issues and I got a bad feeling there. Was actually relieved to GTFO.

I've also wanted to do UAE, though I'm not sure when we'd do that. It's really one of those ones where if you're planning such a big vacation to some place so far away, there are definitely different options, so I think if or when we ever went, it'd be part of a different trip where that was a layover or something.
