First time overseas- how exciting!!
Egypt will blow your mind! Such an incredible place!
My tip would be to definitely just be prepared! Have your visa, insurance and transfers all organised well before hand! I found being prepared like this, always knowing where I needed to go and where I was going next really helped my experience. Going somewhere like Egypt is a culture shock in it’s self, totally different from home and being in a strange country where you don’t speak the language at all and you have no understanding of your surroundings can be quite daunting!
Definitely would do a tour, I think it’s the best way to get around and see things and also is good fir the obvious safety reasons. Even my friends in Egypt say that it’s not the best idea for foreigners (especially women) to go wandering around on their own, just like in any country you are not familiar with.
But the people are the most warm and kind people you will ever meet!
Oh and don’t forget your camera
Well that’s definitely a good reason to be celebrating! Congrats
