Saturday I did my suitcase for my holidays in Egypt and it was such a nice feeling to take out all the sommer stuff again, suncream and sandals and bathing suits.

On Sunday morning at 3 am I jumped out of my bed, into my clothes had some coffee while Mr. G. loaded my suitcase into the car. Domi was already waiting on the street, she just lives next door. He dropped us off at the airport where hundreds of people were already there, charter flights are very early mornings.

After having checked in without any problem as we didn't have any bombs or drugs with us, and anyway looked like innocent "old" ladies, we had a coffee and a croissant and waited for the plane. Outside it was 3 °C !

After a smooth flight of 4 h we landed in Hurghada and when I got out of the plane I thought I would enter in an oven ! It was hot ! 35° C (which is above 100) I thought I would melt.
We arrived at our hotel which is really beautiful, in the next days I will post some pictures.
First thing we did after having emptied our suitcase, we went to the beach and and had our first swim in a very warm and very salty sea !

I had some difficulties to get Internet, so I will report more tomorrow for "My World" It took three men and a lot of blablabla to get a Internet access card with a code for me and as nothing is urgent in this country it took 1 h !

Here you see my poor cat Pookie, sitting on my suitcase, she knows that I am leaving ! The view from our room. I took the picture of the airplane because the Belgian Tennis player Kim Kleysters was on it.

Sorry but the linky thing was on holidays today !
