Being in the sky above Egypt




More participants here at




In this week I started my holidays together with my friend Nicole. As we were both handicapped she with her twisted leg and I with my breathing problems I had asked for "disabled" assistance to bring us from the check in to the flight gate. These were about 2 km impossible for us to walk.


Above a selfie in the wheelchairs ! and a beautiful view on Hurghada

We were picked up by a young girl who brought two wheelchairs ! one hanging at the back of the other. Unfortunately I forgot to ask somebody to make a picture but made a selfie. We got directly through all controls and then had to take a little electric car and were driven to the gate ! Here again we had priority with all the others we were not many only 5. The flight was smooth and the 4 h went by rather quickly.

We arrived at 5 in Hurghada and were driven in a bus to the hotel. As it was St. Valentine's day the whole hotel was full of hearts and the table decoration too.

The first day was a bit cool and only scattered sunshine. We were so tired that at 8.30 pm the first day we went to bed !



The deserts are still delicious



The view from my bed too ! What a joy to wake up and the sun is already shining at 6 am !!



I found a mummy in my bed, watching TV

Now the sun is shining and it is warm. We met a lot of people from last year and when I went to get me a cup of coffee, suddenly somebody "jumped" on me and hugged me it was the Scottish lady I had met two years ago in November and also last year and now they are also here in February at the same time as we are. What fun !

So now the work has started, laying on the beach the whole day with lunch interruptions and swimming and chatting of course. Half of the guests are German the others from GB. Very few other guests.

Such fun! We flew cross country one time when Bill was having foot/leg problems and got handicapped help -- it was just wonderful, we got on first, got help everywhere (had to transfer flights twice and always met by a kid with long legs who got us where we wanted to go in plenty of time... I loved it. Can't say I want him to have problems again, but it sure was nice that time.

I love the skies and sunshine at your resort! Enjoy every minute (as if I have to tell you that!)
