So, after spending a frustrating afternoon in Sharm, looking for a youth hostel that didn’t want to be found, I decided: to Dahab I would go!
… and I must say, it was undoubtedly the right decision to make. I made a friend while waiting for the bus in the station. Her name is Juanita and she’s from New Zealand, so we’re combining some of our plans over the next couple of days. It’s nice, and if anything, relieving to have someone else to share a bit of the journey with in Egypt. It instantly took a weight off of my shoulders and removed a certain anxiety that try as I might, I cannot help but have traveling through Egypt alone.
We’re staying in an awesome place, called ‘Penguin Village,’ that is really laid back and has a pleasant, easygoing atmosphere.
So, I’m safe and happy. I’ve got to update about my new years and the following week. Hopefully I’ll get that done tomorrow.
