This book made me want to share one of my greatest accomplishments. It was six years ago now, but still one of the best moments of my life (aside from my marriage, of course!) This was the three days I spent in Egypt. I took a trip to Israel and had an amazing time, but my ultimate goal while in the area was to see the Great Sphinx of Giza. It was one of those things that seemed impossible. It was one of those places you see in Nat Geo or on the Discovery Channel, but not a place you would actually see in person.
|Saad, the driver.|
After driving through the desert on roads almost completely covered in sand, we stopped in a village. It was filled with goats, camels and naked children ran up to the car as we drove in. We cooked a chicken and chatted with a family there.
|Fatima and her baby at the small village outside of Sinai.|
|The Khufu Pyramid and the Great Sphinx of Giza. The money shot.|
I could go on and on about those few days. I hope one day I can take my husband with me to a place he never thought he would see. I hope that if we get into trouble or get in over our heads, a stranger will help us and make the experience that much more unforgettable.
