Dear Patty, Fadel, Shimo, Eman, and Fellow Adventurers,
Thank you for an amazing experience exploring places and things we had only dreamed about. The whole trip was so incredible, it has been difficult to process all that we saw and did. It was nonstop excitement and wonder.
Friends have asked, “How was your vacation?” And the only possible response has been, “Amazing!” Followed by, “Exhausting!”
Every day felt like three days packed into one. Every temple seemed to exceed the prior temple in color, grandeur, and history. The same could be said about the tombs and the museums.
The access to people, places, and experiences was off-the-charts. I mean, really, Zahi Hawass and Mostafa Waziri on back-to-back days! Photos between the paws of the Sphinx and private night-time access to Luxor…unbelievable!
Lastly, the amazing people we met. The shared experiences and time together created a great bond among our group, and we look forward to the reunion and more adventures together.
Thank you, Patty, for including us in this one-in-a-lifetime trip. It was fabulous!
PS, Several people have expressed how nice it was to get home to sleep in their own bed. Actually, we kind of miss our bed at The Old Cataract!

Thanks to Fadel, Eman and Shimo! Big shout out to Richard for the fabulous pictures. And Patty for getting us all together. Looking forward to the reunion!

We are still digesting the wonderful experience and are enormously grateful for your inviting us along. I had to smile since we have been up since 5 am since it’s moving day. We will make sure our movers respect everyone’s access today. Cheers

I am so appreciative of the exclusive opportunities Fadel arranged for us. And traveling with all of you was a joy! I’m looking forward to our reunion after the holidays. Mediterranean food, galabeyas, and laughter— but California wine this time haha! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. So much to be grateful for! Love to you all
