Mosquito Repellent

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I didn't have a problem with Mosquitos in September 05, but on returning in April 06 i was bitten quite bad, im not sure but think so could be because it was much greener after there winter.

I even had to purchase some Antihistamines from the local chemist to take the swelling away along with some gel total cost 100 EGP - (10 GBP) if you are thinking of traveling this time of year make sure to get some repellent and sting/bite relief.

On the other hand John didnt get bite once, they obviously sweater tasting blood.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Lots of Bikinis, shorts its very hot even in the evening, and make sure to take a hat to keep the sun off, and something light to cover yourself if travelling in the sun.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Make sure to take plenty of paracetamol / painkillers , i had terrible tooth ache and used the few we had. They sold painkillers at the Chemist but thay were very expensive approx ?3-4.00.

A good waterproof suncream is esential, if you plan on being in the water alot take a old T-Shirt you dont mind getting wet and wear it whilst snorkelling as the water magnifies the sun.

Photo Equipment: Water proof camera

Miscellaneous: Some good books to read, im already on the look out for a new one, think i will be investing in Jordans latest 'A Whole New World' can't wait to read it.
