As they say that you should not count the years with the number of days in a calendar year. As the pages flip into another year, it is supposed to increase the number of years you have been around. Why quantify this wonderful life we have when we can amplify its value by not counting the days and years but by creating and counting precious experiences and memories every moment. Before the start of 2016, we gave our readers a sneak peek here of our travels plans for the year. We successfully ticked off most of the destinations from our list except a few towards the last quarter of the year which we could not complete, especially to give priority to visiting family related travels. May be it was important to slow down, pause and reflect for a while before refuelling and relaunching ourselves anew for 2017!
Away from straight thoughts on vogue, voyage and voracity, we thought to share with you moments of reflections we experienced in the eventful memories we chased, some reflections on faith, fears and fidelity of religions and rituals.
Cairo will prove to be colourful but chaotic. If the cacophony burns you out, you will know it’s time to travel up to Upper Egypt where the Valley of the Kings lies. In other words, you have to step away from crazy Cairo to step into the realm of history and luxury – which is only found in Luxor. While you contemplate at the setting sun from the banks of the river Nile, you can look away at the majestically meditating vast Valley of the Kings turning from orange to pink. You can feel lost in thoughts and reflections of time and of yourself, all from the best spot in Luxor to absorb a whole range of history and charm. And that is possible only from the river-facing abundant terrace of the Sonesta St. George Hotel.
