Egypt is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. It is the home of some of the most extraordinary archeological ruins ever seen. The Great Pyramids complex of Giza was listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and is now the only one of them still remaining. But even though the Great Pyramids are without equal in the world as an archeological site, they are only one of many such sites in Egypt. There are also amazing ruins in Memphis, Thebes, Karnak and the Valley of the Kings. The Temple of Karnak still has giant stone columns and statues standing after thousands of years. The Temple of Edfu is a colossal, sprawling complex with monolithic walls and huge columns. The Temple of Abu Simbel has enormous seated figures of pharaohs whose individual fingers are larger than a full-sized man. #egypt#walklikeanegyptian#savvytraveldesign
Bucketlist ticked! Highlight of today- the great pyramids of Giza! We went to the first pyramid that was built on a plateau. Then on to the second pyramid for a tour of the inside. It is truly fascinating how such a massive structure is built and with the secret rooms they had within. I can hardly imagine how difficult it was to carry the stones, lay them and work out the secret chambers within. #walklikeanegyptian#pyramidsofgiza#bucketlist#thankyougod
