When you’re gearing up for a trip to Egypt, you are likely already planning to spend a fair amount of time in the desert. Luckily, there are many ways to do this in Egypt.


Perhaps the easiest and most obvious suggestion is to see the great pyramids of Giza. You can either take a tour or go to the site on your own and simply pay the admission fee. This tour company takes guests on a number of itineraries in and around Giza.


If you already planned to see the pyramids and are looking for something else, consider a hot air balloon sunrise tour. These tours out of Luxor give tourists the chance to see a one-of-a-kind sunrise over the horizon. The tour lasts three hours, so you will have plenty of time for activities later on.


Many tours offer a number of transportation options, including camels. This is an awesome way to get to know the region and travel how people did when the pyramids were being built.


If camels don’t excite you, there are always quad tours through the desert. These tours let you see a lot of the untouched desert, and are excellent excuses to get away from civilization for a bit.


Egypt has tons of desert, so even if these options don’t excite you, there are sure to be more desert activities upon your arrival.

European Beaches Still Warm Enough for a Fall Vacation

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of beach season. Although the temperatures start to dip, there is still plenty of European coastline ripe for swimming and sunbathing well into September. Take advantage of cheaper, off-season airfare and jet to one of these European beaches before fall weather makes its way south.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
