For us, sahel is a must during our summers. You get a chance to unwind, relax and enjoy your time by the beach with your friends. Whether we’re tanning, dancing the night away or just stuffing our faces with delicious freska, we try to make the most/ best memories we can.Even though as sisters we spend our summers mainly apart, we make the best of it and enjoy ourselves. Summer in Egypt is never the same without a trip to the North Coast. It is the perfect combination of the hot sunny beaches, the long partying nights, the infinite food variety and the endless memories with the best of friends.
But it’s not just the eating or the partying, it about the serenity we feel while sitting on he beach, listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore. Sure some might say, that it’s like that all over the world, but I would have to highly disagree, there’s something about the beaches here in Egypt, it’s the perfect weather, the sun hitting your face and the wind that makes your hair curlier than ever, or maybe just a combination of all of the above!
A typical day involves going to the beach from 11 am to 7 pm swimming, tanning, eating Freska and Gandofli, playing racket and doing all kinds of shenanigans with my friends, then having a bite somewhere then going home to quickly shower and maybe steal an hour of resting before going to a party till dawn. The Sahel spirit is always active and uplifting, never a moment of restlessness or boredom.
Even though two of my friends are married and several are engaged so we don’t spend as much time together as we used to, Sahel is still the one place that groups all of us despite our separate lives. Now that we all have thriving careers, Sahel will be our perfect escape every weekend to unwind and have an a gret time.
To me, Sahel is all about going with my two best friends and making new memories that still make us laugh even two years later! Its about eating lotss of kahk and not caring how fat we’re getting, its about binge eating pizza at 3 am in the morning and laying on the beach for hours, just to get the perfect tan. Whether I’m there for a month or just a week, Sahel is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and just enjoy my summer with my friends! It’s not all about the laziness though, we make sure to get some partying in there too!
