Visited: Cairo, Port Said, Alexandria, Luxor, Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh.
One of the first countries I visited, way back as a child on a cruise, Egypt was for many years on my black list, as I has stepped in spit at Port Said at the age of 12 and been traumatised. In 2007 I finally made it back as a springboard to the rest of Africa, albeit only to Cairo, which is a nightmarish place, no doubt, though clearly interesting, vibrant, exciting and, at places, romantic. Still, not the top of any list.
Highlight: The bridges over the Nile in Cairo.
