Velkommen inn.....

... til min blogg, som for det meste er om kort. Jeg er også veldig glad i å reise (spesielt Egypt) og å ta bilder, så det kan dukke opp noen scrappesider innimellom.
Blir veldig glad hvis du legger igjen spor etter deg...

Endelig fikk vi reise til Egypt igjen/Finally we got to go to Egypt again (obs! langt innlegg/long post)

I fjor i høstferien bestilte vi tur til Egypt, men på grunn av uroligheter ble turen kansellert av reiseselskapet (UD), tror du skuffelsen var stor???/
 Last year we were suppose to go to Egypt in Emilie's autumnbreak, but due to disturbancies, our trip got cancelled by our travelagency (UD)
Stor var derfor gleden når vi hørte at det var noen som hadde vært der i vår, da kunne vi og prøve å få oss en tur....
André ville reise så fort som mulig, men jeg vil jo helst drøye ferien lengst mulig, så det ble til at vi dro ei uke fra 3-10 sept. på Makadi Spa, i Makadi Bay.
What a joy when we heard that someone had been there this spring, maybe we could get a vacation too. André wanted to go as soon as possible, I want to save my vacation for as long as possible, so we ended up going one week, sept. 3-10. on Makadi Spa in Makadi Bay.
Turen var helt fantastisk, snakk om å være i paradis. Vi har vært på to av nabohotellene før, og dette er en av de plassene hvor du er på korallrevet når du går ut i (Røde)havet, som er rett nedenfor hotellet...... - sa jeg paradis......
Our trip was amazing, talk about paradise. We've been on two of the neighbor hotels before, and this is one of the places where, when you get out in the (Red)sea, you are on the coral reef, which is right by the hotel....... -did I say Paradise..
Så i en uke koste vi oss med sol, snorkling, og VARME.... 34-36 grader, kan man ha det bedre.... Siden det ble så mye snorkling og sol, så var vi så trøtte på kveldene at vi var tidlig i seng, noe som igjen førte til at vi var ute å så soloppgangen et par morgener. For et syn.......
Bare se her..
So, for one week we enjoyed sun, snorkeling and HEAT.....34-36 degrees, heaven..... Since we snorkeled and stayed in the sun all day we were so tired that we went early to bed, wich led us to be able to see the sunrise a few mornings.
What a sight...
See for yourself.
 Se på de fargene/look at those colors
 Det er så utrolig flott/It's so amazing
På vei inn i ørkenen og fjellene/On her way to the desert and the mountains
 Enda lenger opp på himmelen/Futher up on the sky
Det fantastiske lyset/amazing light
I tillegg har de noen fantastiske blomster/In addition they have some amazing flowers
 Jasmineblomst/flower
 Kan ikke navnet på denne, men den er i et tre men laaange frøkapsler/I don't know the name of this, it's in a tree with loooong seedcapsules.
 Jasmineblomst/flower
Daddel palmer/Date palms
Litt av bygningene og anlegget rundt hotellet vårt/some of the buildings and the surroundings of our hotel


 På toppen av den murkanten er det basseng, Infinity pool heter det/On top of this brick wall there's a pool, it's called Infinity pool.
 Blomstergutten min/my flowerboy
 Litt av utsikten fra rommet/the wiew from our room (some of it)
 Et av bassengene/one of the pools
 Når du kommer ut av resepsjonen ser du dette/when you come out of the reception this is what you see
 Til venstre fra resepsjonen/to the left from the reseption
Denne gangen så vi mange av yndlingsfisken min, som regel er vi heldige hvis vi ser den et par ganger, denne gang var det 6-10 hver gang vi snorklet /this time we saw a lot of my favourite fish, usually we're lucky if we see it a few times, this time 6-10 every time we snorkeled.
Den heter/it's called
Greymasked butterfly fish..
Da håper jeg dere likte mitt lille reisebrev, og til dere alle.. Egypt er fantastisk/
I hope you liked my travelogue, and to you all..... Egypt is amazing..
But first, we have to take a selfie :)
Meg og min kjære ❤/me and the love of my life ❤
