Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of October 30. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.

This weekend was not only the end of the week but also the end of our holidays ! Saturday our last day, we spent as usual "working" at the beach, swimming, reading and watching people.

A beach boy took this last picture of us and I took the last one of our little beach space which we had squatted for 2 weeks and the view from my bed. I certainly will miss this !

Our last supper (hopefully not) we spent in the oriental restaurant, where I ate an escellent Couscous which is not an Egyptian dish, but rather Moroccan, but it's one of my favorite plates.

After supper we watched "Sister Act" which was really very funny.

In the meantime we had done our suitcases and Sunday after breakfast and saying good bye to people we met, we were picked up by a bus and driven to the airport.

We waved good bye to the Sunrise Hotel, which was our home for 2 weeks, and took the decision that next year we are going back here. All people very friendly and even the Russian speaking people behaved !

The airport was a nightmare, there were so many people and when we arrived we were told by a histerical French woman that our flight were 7 h late ! This made people panicked, until checking my flight N° I saw with relieve that our flight was not concerned. We were pushed through the check ins and outs and finally landed in the Duty Free zone where we sat down had a coffee and had a last look on the shops.

Our flight was rather rickety and I got the impression to be in a bus and driven over cobble stones. But we arrived safely in Brussels, where Mr. G. picked us up.

At home I was greated by my cats Arthur and Rosie who were happy to see me again, only Pookie is offended and went away when she saw me ! It takes here a couple of days to forgive me. After a sandwich and an apple together with Dominique and Mr. G. I dropped half dead in my bed !

Now I am feeling a little groggy !


  1. Welcome back, Gattina! I'm sure Pookie will come around soon and forgive you! Glad your flight was not cancelled. You have many lovely sunny memories of this last trip. I hope you're loaded with vitamin D for the winter. If not, take a flight over to Johannesburg and I'll collect you! Ha! Have a great day. Blessings and hugs Jo

  2. Welcome home! love your sunny pictures!

  3. Holidays are hard work aren't they. I'm sure everyone was happy to see you home.

  5. It sounds like you had a wonderful vacation. I have a chance to go to Egypt this January. I am really thinking of going, now that I have seen your photos. Hubby says I should go. It would be nice if he would go with me.
    Being back home is nice also. there no place like your own bed.

  6. Nice to learn you had a such marvelous time in Egypt!!! a lot of sun ahd great moments!!! Lucky you are!!! Here, south of France it's raining cats and dogs!!! Halloween is in the air!

  7. Glad you made it home safe and sound! My goodness what a busy weekend you have had!

  8. Lovely ! couscous is my favorite meal too btw. I see a muslim in one of the pics lol
    That hotel looks really nice . I am afraid my life isn't as exciting as yours and what I did this weekend was cook pot pies and go shopping. Yes I watched some movies too... maybe I could participate ?

  9. Must be hard to settle after all that sun in Egypt but I'm sure all the cats will help. Cold wet and windy here today, you would feel right at home. I don't know where spring went!

  10. Lovely pictures, especially of your little beach space.
    How does it feel to be back home? I hope Pookie has forgiven you by now.:)

  11. I think I would really the hotel and the beach, but the traveling part would make me very anxious

  12. Wow it looks amazing?
    Ever been to Malta? That's the only place I've been that really compares, judging by your photos.
    + Morocco, but Morocco was less of a desert and probably less hot than Egypt.
    Doesn't Egypt get to about 55C in highest summer...? That must be exceedingly inconvenient for the locals who have to WORK in such temperatures...
