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)

Hugs by the waves

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.

Sisterly secrets..

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!

We’re never alone, our friends help us make the best of memories!

Attempting to be active wherever we go

we never stop laughing! Malak x2

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.

-Farida

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!

-Malak

Beachy shenanigans!

A nice breeze makes everything better!

The oldest always ignores the youngest! Thanks a lot
