    What I've heard is that you should stick to the more expensive hotels, as others (below 3 stars) tend to be below the standard you can expect from a hotel (there are some exceptions of course, but you don't know for sure until you see the hotel IRL).

    I haven't been to Egypt myself, but a friend of mine is in Cairo right now for the third time. I have seen pictures from past trips when he went to the pyramids, it looks awesome! I would love to go to the country myself...

    Happy honeymoon! And don't forget your sunscreen

    Yea...am just a bit dubious about travelling alone.Ive never had to do it before.Was with my sons father for 9years then my new ex for 5years until 2weeks ago.

    Now theres nobody but me..I spose I should feel free and be glad to be able to do the things I want for once but the thought of travelling alone makes me sad x

    Been to egypt a couple of times, Sharm El Sheikh is gorgeous if you want to just lay around on the beach and by the pool, also really great for diving etc. Not real close to Cairo though :S

    Harleys are cool for the long straight roads but not too clever for the twistys as they grind out too easily but I would still have one. I only have two bikes at the moment but there's always room for another lol.
