I have at least 8 stories to write by Monday about my recent travels, including some blog posts on my 2017 trip to Egypt.
So, like any good procrastinator I naturally sat down at my desk today to do an entirely unrelated task.
I stumbled on a piece I wrote for the travel industry magazine Travel Trade Gazette 4 years ago about selling a tricky destination like Egypt.
Like any good half-Egyptian girl, I’m keen to put off my pressing deadlines until bokra (tomorrow) so I read this old article all the way through.
I then realise that my procrastination may just have saved me some time; because other than the Egyptian pound being worth half of what it was in 2013 (representing good value for holidaymakers even back then) I may as well have written this piece today.
Have a read and see why I think tourism to Egypt in 2017 is the same as it always was, and probably always will be – meaning if you want to visit, you might as well just do it…
