Egypt. The land of Pharaohs, pyramids, temples and the mighty Nile River. Talk to most people about touring Egypt these days and the first question they ask is “Is it safe?” We were about to find out for ourselves exactly how safe a trip to Egypt feels right now. Our journey began in Cairo with accommodation at Le Méridien Pyramids where we were met by Marion and Dennis Bunnik, our hosts. The third family member, Sacha, joined us later in Luxor.
