Adventures

Yoga by the Nile!

Yet another adventure! Friday, 10 am, Maadi: we made our way to our first yoga class by the Nile. It was different that any exercise we have done in quite some time. It was great to just unwind and relax, other that the fact that the weather was extremely hot, we got a chance to just focus on our breathing, on our bodies and on our overall well being for an hour and a half of yoga poses, chants and an amazing view.

A Perfect Day

A perfect day: in our everyday lives, a perfect day consists of having breakfast with each other, maybe with our friends and family, but we indulge in our breakfast and spoil ourselves by going to our fav breakfast spots in Cairo. To us, a good breakfast sets the tone for the day! A perfect day also involves doing some shopping and buying things we need (and things we don’t), but the really great days also consists of doing something new, going on an adventure. (This is a blog post as well as our images for the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge)

Some go for the typical orange juice, while others take a risk with a mango, kiwi, pineapple combo! (ps it was delicious)

Touchdown: Alexandria

The oh-so delectable Alexandria, one of Egypt’s treasures was the destination of my last adventure with my friends. We roamed like nomads by the sea, visiting the sights of which we’re oblivious to their existence.

Unorthodox modes of transportation are the best!

Always be conscious of the beauty around you

We went to Bibliotheca Alexandria, and were very surprised to find multiple museums in the biggest library in Egypt. One of those was a museum about one of Egypt’s former president: Anwar El Sadat. I got a sneak peak of what his life was like, and I must say, I was inspired. Moreover, we went to the Blue and White restaurant in the Greek Club by the sea, and enjoyed a mouth-watering seafood dinner.

Al Sadat’s personal notes

Now more than ever I want to travel all over, and discover my country, which has immense beauty but that no one knows about, including we Egyptians. Whenever you get a chance to travel, go on a road trip, however long it is, go for it. The circumstances don’t really matter, you can stay in a shitty hotel, eat not so delicious food, and questionable modes of transportation, that’ll make the best trips ever!

The world beneath our feet!

In participation to the Daily Post’s Photo Challenge,  we started looking at the world under us rather than the world that surrounds us! We took several images, documenting our week, and we found ourselves sporting very colorful nail polish, staring at the sea and luckily, surrounded by the best of friends!

You don’t have to be standing to look beneath your feet, and that’s my favorite position

You should always surround yourself with the best of friends, and it helps if you’re all different

Who said you can’t wear your favorite shoes during summer? It’s not all about the sandals.
