Taba, Egypt

Sinai Peninsula

The triangular peninsula known as the Sinai Peninsula is bordered by the Mediterranean to the north and the Red Sea to the south and has long been in the forefront of many a battle. Today, it has some of the best hotels and infrastructure in Egypt.

Essentially the Sinai is a desert that has little evidence of much domesticity or inhabitants; the only known inhabitants are the Bedouin people, who have lived there for many years.

It was my passion for languages that first encouraged me to leave the UK behind and grab my rucksack. Since then, it’s been a mixture of intriguing cultures, jaw-dropping landscapes and the wonder of seeing animals in their natural habitat that sees me continuously extending my travel wish list.
