Egypt Itinerary

I’ve been eager to share content from my birthday trip. In pandemic time, I practically turned 21 on April 20th. My objective was to cross off three of my 2022 Travel Resolutions. So, I did that. I used this trip to see one new continent and three countries while working on my French. I have been yearning to visit Africa for as long as I can remember. Confined to the week of spring break (which thankfully fell on my birthday), I managed to make this my reality.

If you’re new here, I’m an avid procrastinator. Although I knew the location, the flights were not booked until 2 months prior. Accommodations were secured days before departing, and no excursions were reserved in advance.

Now that we have gotten that out of the way, we can address where my sister and I went! We opted for flights with extended layovers to make the most of the trip and our time. I’ve never planned anything like this, so it was a headache. After some consideration, I booked our flights to Egypt with day trips to Casablanca, Morocco and Doha, Qatar.

Additional blog posts for this series (outside of the below) will be shared. I have many, many stories. Anyways, onto the birthday trip itinerary.
