📊How long to stay
I would suggest you to have about 1 hour time (at least 30 minutes)
- You can go around, relax and enjoy the peaceful place. - On the south part of the island there is a cafe where you can have some rest and little stand-shops to spend your money 🤗
☝🏼A bit of history
- The island was given to consul-general of Egypt - Lord Kitchener, who served Egypt between years 1911-1914.
- Lord Kitchener has transformed the island into a paradise with few walkways
- Later it passed into the property of the Egyptian government and was used as a research station called the Botanical Research Institute
O hope you will enjoy this beautiful resting place.
I got the Christmas feel last month when I was in #Stockholm. I was also lucky enough to witness the start of the snowfall...
Everything about my trip last month was so magical that it felt unreal at times... I come from a humble background and to experience everything that I do is something I could never even imagine. Hence it feels like a privilege and that makes me grateful for almost everything that I have... Life is so precious and so good... and love is all that we need
Sometimes we see magic on Instagram, the charming places we only thought were cinematic scenes there waiting for you to discover them. This is due to travel bloggers around the world and adventurers. In some cases, Instagram may be a source of negative energy and may contain many false images and false impressions. But it also contains inspiration. Do not give up to place restrictions, build your own adventure ✨✨✨
The #masai#tribe at #masaimara#kenya. A visit in to their village was a peek into their traditional ways of living. Though, a baby that was so covered with flies that I could see some flying into his mouth was shocking and appalling. But that's how they choose to live, I was told. On second thoughts, I've seen similar sights in my own country in the extreme rural areas, where #poverty is not a choice. Another interesting fact that was shared with me is that the #pinkcoloured#tea that the little kids were drinking had cow's blood in it. That's what makes the lions very scared of the masais. All of this was very bad translation by a local, so I have little confidence in this information and sharing it with #scepticism. #girlwhotravels#traveladdict#travelstories#travelogues#travelogues#africa#safari#kenyadiaries
