We checked-in at the Marriott Sharm El Sheikh Resort (4*), and got some time to relax in our rooms. At 7.30 PM we gathered in the lobby for a barbecue at the beach. From our hotel a long boulevard lead to Sharm El Sheikhâ€™s city center.
Although the entire trip had been very relaxing already, the fourth day was entitled to relax and enjoy some luxury. With four big yachts we entered the open sea for a day of sunbathing, swimming and snorkeling. During the day we made several stops along the route. We were able to see the Red Sea both above and below the water surface. The beautiful coral and fishes made it a very nice, and indeed relaxing day. Although the four boats were filled with over 100 women, no one had helped me with applying the suncreen, so by the time we arrived back in the harbor my entire body was red like a lobster.
Our fifth and last day in Egypt I just slept late and after a short flight with Egyptair Express to Cairo, and a connecting flight with Swiss via Zurich I got back in Amsterdam in the late evening.After those 5 days I can conclude that Egypt has much more to offer than regular beach holidays and I am pretty sure I will get back to experience more of this country in the near future.
Finally, I want to thank the entire Dutch Star Alliance crew, the representatives of Egyptair and all other people involved in organizing this unforgettable trip.
