So in spite the fact that I'm now a Toronto girl, I can safely say you can get me out of Egypt but you can't get Egypt out of me. True, as a third world nation, we've screwed up in ways more than one, but underneath everything that seems to be on the surface, Egypt serves as the BEST hideaway with Caribbean-like beaches, year round spring weather and some of the kindest people. Ain El Sukhna is HANDS DOWN my favorite weekend getaway, just some 70 miles away from the crazy Cairo capital, you're 90 minutes away from sun, breeze and beach. So without further ado, here are some snippets of one of those 'getaway' weekends, basking under the warm sun and hennaing my friends on the beach with a much deserved impromptu photo shoot.
