Egypt - Dahab and the Red Sea

Moses Territory

The smaller of the two resort towns on the Egyptian side of the Red Sea, Dahab provides a lovely location to relax for a few days. Diving and snorkelling are the main draws here, aswell as trips to Mount Sinai, and the the beautiful view of the Red Sea. For us it was a chance to take it easy for a few days and maybe get some of those activities in.

We found a hotel overlooking the sea and with some nice views, and enjoyed the local cuisine.

An attempt to part the Red Sea was proving difficult.

We did manage to get in some "diving" and snorkelling with mixed results.

Another grand plan of ours was to hire some bikes and navigate our way to Mount Sinai. This was a complete failure as it was too hot, had no water and didn't know where we going. Some nice views though.

Dahab is also full of goats.
