THE LAST OF THE 7 WONDERS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD

even though you've seen them a million times in photos, on tv, in movies, there's nothing quite like seeing the pyramids of giza for the first time in real life!

even if you think finally seeing them won't be too much of a big deal - especially because the busy city surrounds that lead to it seem so anti-climactic - you'll still be blown away!

the only thing i wasn't sure of was exactly how big (or small) the sphinx would actually be.

well, i thought it was going to be smaller than i expected having previously heard someone say it was quite, well, small. i guess that's a good frame of mind to be in when you finally see it because, well, it wasn't.

i was pleasantly surprised to see just how significant this statue was in size and stature.

but not so much that i started copying its appearance - i just really needed some protection from the sweltering summer sun (it hit 53 degrees celcius at around 1pm!)

    hello - have the options of 1-4 Oct in Egypt from Taba - so to Sharm and around Sinai peninsula or rush to Cairo and the pyramids!?
