Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt 🇪🇬 .
Oh the infamous camel picture at the pyramids. I know, I know but I could not help myself. Camels are so cute! It’s impossible to stand in front of the Great Pyramids without a feeling of awe. The long journey up to the Pyramids can be made by car, foot, camel, horseback, or horse drawn cart. We chose to go with the horse drawn cart because my attire was not appropriate for me to be climbing up on a camel. We have a long journey ahead of us though and I am keen to ride a camel. .
Travel Tip 🐫
Know when and what to Tip. Each country has their own customs and that includes tipping. Here in Egypt you can lose your shirt if you don’t know what the appropriate tip is. In and around the main tourism sites many people make their living off of Tips but they aren’t always transparent about their methods. If someone offers to take your picture with their horse, camel, donkey they will be expecting a tip. Often times (as I have learnt) people that have not even done anything will ask for a tip too. .

Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt 🇪🇬 .
Egypt. Like, wow! I’ve dreamt of visiting this ancient land since I was a child spun of the mysterious tales of how such imposing structures had come to be. It has been a very long journey but I am so excited to be here. Today was exciting and yet quite taxing. Everywhere you go there are people trying to sell you trinkets or offer you tours and services. It can be quite overwhelming especially if you’re not in the practice of saying, “no.” I honestly just wanted a peaceful moment of quiet to sit and take in the magnificence of it all. .
Travel Tip ⛏
Know your limits. Travelling can put us off balance and out of place so it’s important to know our limits. It’s ok to say, “no” “no thank you” and finally after much assertiveness “please sod off” .

مجموعه اهرام مصر یا اهرام جیزه نام مجموعه اهرام تاریخی در گورستان جیزه یا گیزا است که در حومه جنوب غربی قاهره در کشور مصر واقع شده است و قدیمیترین و تنها باقی مانده از عجایب هفتگانه دنیای باستان به شمار می روند. مساحت جیزه در حدود 8 کیلومتر است.
هرم های سه گانه، عظیم ترین و باشکوه ترین سازه های ساخته شده در تاریخ بشر به شمار می روند. این هرمها از حدود 2550 پیش از میلاد ساخته شده اند.
مصریان قدیم اعتقاد داشتند که فراعنه پس از مرگ به خدایی می رسند و بنابراین مقابرشان می بایست بسیار عظیم و غیر قابل نفوذ ساخته شود. مصری ها زندگی کوتاه این جهان را فانی و مرگ را آغاز یک حیات نوین و جاویدان در دنیایی دیگر می دانستند. زمانى قرار بود اهرام مصر تخریب و از مصالحش برای سد نیل استفاده شود، مهندس پروژه «لويس لينانت» با محاسبات ساختگى نشان داد كه استفاده از سنگهای جدید ارزانتر است و اینگونه اهرام را نجات داد.
🏅Jumping with a World Champion over the last standing World Wonder. 😳😦🤯
The term “World Champion” is an understatement. Omar Alhegelan is a Legend. A proverbial “Sky God” in my eyes. He broke boundaries and paved the way for a new form of skydiving. The Free Flying style that Omar created is the type of skydiving that I have loved for over a decade.
Though I have some incredible footage of this jump, I’m saving the best of it for the video edit. 🤩🎥✈️ On my end, I didn’t do anything special on this jump... I was just learning to fly with that silly boot on my foot. But, having an opportunity to fly with Omar, Shiraz and Jaime over the last standing Natural Wonder of the Ancient World... to me, 👉🏼 🌟 THIS JUMP WAS ALL THE THINGS! 💫
Omar ~ Thank you for your creativity. Thank you for your energy. Thank you for sharing the sky with me. The pleasure was all mine.
This dude was like “yo what up” and the other guy was like “yo what up, but like hold up I gotta bite my butt quick”. And then they both looked up at me and were like “yo what up” - true story of what these camels were thinking probably
When I was in elementary school I learnt about Egypt and told my parents I was going to see the pyramids in person one day. Yesterday was that day and it was so much better than I could have imagined... and the camel ride added tons of entertainment 🇪🇬 🐫
Everyone wants to know about King Tut. How about we learn about his father, Akhenaten/Echnaton also known as Amenhotep IV. He was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty who ruled for 17 years. Photos by me. *Echnaton* remember this name. #worldnextdoor

ابوالهول مجسمه ای است بسیار بزرگ که در هشت کیلومتری قاهره قرار دارد. این مجسمه ی غول پیکر همچون یک نگهبان در برابر اهرام سه گانه در جیزه ایستاده است. ابوالهول یک هیولای سنگی است که سری شبیه انسان دارد اما اندامش شبیه شیری است که بر زمین نشسته و پنجه هایش را جلو گذاشته است.
تراش اندام این مجسمه بطور ناهموار صورت گرفته ولی تراش سر سنگی آن به دقت انجام گرفته است. ابوالهول دارای چشمان مرموزی است و تا به حال کسی نتوانسته معنای نگاه این چشمها را درک و بیان کند . چشمان او با وقار خاصی به افق صحرا خیره مانده است.
گمان می رود که عمر این مجسمه دست کم 5000 سال باشد.
