November 9 to 17 , 2017 link to you tube video
on a cold wintry morning day in Zurich, we take a four hour flight to Hurghada Egypt

flying south across the alps

 

We arrive at Movenpick Hotel after 30 minute shuttle ride, in the sunshine (and here the sun shines 364 days a year)

 

Wow!

Red Sea is northermost tropical sea in the world, with warm water year round.

view from our room over one of the lagoons

view westwards towards Downtown and the golf course, and beyond the mountains lies the mighty Nile river, flowing north into the Mediterranean sea

this camel likes to have its soft ears rubbed

 

we take tuktuks to Hotel Paradisio, or to restaurants and shops downtown or to the marina a few minutes away (20LE equals one Euro)
