So dear readers, I have been away for almost 6 days now and am terribly sorry about that. The reason why I was away was because I took a 4 days vacation with my family to one of the Egyptian Beaches to relax before starting hell again on the 15th of September ( I start UNI again on that date! ). Anyway, we headed to Marsa Matrouh, a coastal city overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Matrouh is almost 400 KMs (254 miles) away from Cairo, roughly 6 hrs drive so make sure to have lotta Caffeine! We were 8 individuals trapped in a little KIA Carens and man, it ain’t that good! Sheesh!
Matrouh is well known for its strongly beautiful beaches so we headed to the Cleopatra Beach. They say Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen, used to bathe there!
Here is a photo at the gates:
Some snapshots of the beach. I assure you that these pictures won’t do Matrouh justice for you need to see it for yourself!
Next, we headed to another beach called “Ageebah“. ‘Ageebah’ translates to ‘Strange’ and the reason why it is called by that name is because of its amazing mountains. Nature is just so beautiful when left untainted by humans 🙂
The temperature that day was 80.6 F (28 C) but it felt more than that ! We were roasted ! So we rested for few hours and in the evening we headed to one of the markets there. The most famous one was called “Libya Market”. For the record, Marsa Matrouh is well known for its desert- planted Olives, Figs and watermelons! And believe me the Olives were G.R.E.A.T.!
So this is how my day ended. It was pretty tiring I dare say ! It is pretty funny that I am an Egyptian and I have never visited half of the places tourists visit. As a matter of fact, this is my first visit to Matrouh since the 19 years I have been to this earth ! I will make another post for the rest of the days and I assure you, you wont be let down ! I hope these photographs made you consider Marsa Marouh as one of your future- to-visit places 😉
