  • Cairo, Egypt
  • Today’s adventures at Giza (Great Pyramids & Sphinx) and Saqqara (Pyramid of Djoser aka Step Pyramid) ❤️ The Pyramid of Djoser is the first pyramid in the world, designed by Imhotep (whom Egyptians call the Father of Architecture & Medicine) and built almost 5,000 years ago in the Saqqara necropolis, in the Ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis.
    .
    The Great Pyramid of Giza, aka Pyramid of Khufu, is the oldest & largest of the collection of 9 pyramids in the compound. His son Khafre built himself a smaller one next door, and his son Menkaure built himself a smaller one next door. Collectively the pyramids of these three pharaohs make up the Great Pyramids. Khafre was also the pharaoh who built the Great Sphinx in the compound - meant to symbolize the intelligence of a king and the strength & dominance of a lion.

    While in Saqqara: we wandered into the sands and found the Tomb of Ty - with its original art depicting every day scenes in Ancient Egypt. The attention to detail was insane - every fingernail on every hand, the scales on every alligator, the feathers on each bird... ‘Awed’ doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt wandering these ancient sites today. Humbled, yes. Appreciative of all the work done to excavate and preserve these wonders, for sure. Grateful for a family that believes in always traveling & exploring & learning, absolutely..

  • Saqqara
  • Details from the Saqqara pyramid complex, including tombs of lesser figures and detailed carvings within, the stele of Djoser, the statues of Djoser, his wife, and his son. We also have two smaller, ruined pyramids, built by less wealthy kings of the later Old Kingdom period, Userkaf and Unas. The latter pyramid is badly decayed on the outside, but its burial chamber has some fascinating carvings and artwork not pictured here owing to the expense of photography permits. These inscriptions include the earliest known version of the Pyramid texts, which over centuries evolved into what we now call The Book Of The Dead. Many of these places are inscribed with curses, but I’m fine so far, apart from a slight headache. #ancientegypt #egypt #saqqara

  • Abu Simbel, Aswan, Egypt
  • The temple of Ramses II at Abu Simbel is one of the main reasons that people visit Aswan, and looking at it its easy to see why. Considering it's over 3000 years old, it is remarkably well preserved.

    This is the first view of the temple you see when arriving at the site, and it's hard to get much better than this. Not even ten minutes later this view was swarming with crowds of tours - the definite downside to coming here is that the only real way to get here is by shuttle, which leads to everyone arriving at pretty much the same time.

  • Luxor, Egypt
  • Day 48: Luxor temple at night 💫 I was fortunate to be able to explore this beaut place with only a handful of other people and it’s so big I felt like I was on my own! Pretty much the first thing I did when I got here was FaceTimed my mum and dad so they could experience it for the first time with me 🥰👨‍👩‍👧
