Aswan, Egypt; Day 4

For our Saturday adventure we took to the water. Many tourists who come to Egypt take a cruise on the Nile between Aswan and Luxor. There are different options for how to do it.

So, not really an official driving day. Our first adventure was stopping at the Multnomah Falls to see one of America’s longest Falls. Mom andContinue reading “Columbia River Gorge, Oregon”
