Dahab – A place for the soul to rest

Dahab, Egypt has to be second on my list of favourite places to trave to. It is situated on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt and is the only place that has really been able to put me at peace. It’s a ridiculously lazy diving town that sucks you in and wills you to stay. What was meant to be a few days there ended up being over a week. We also managed to lose a day to the town and nearly missed our flight home.

The sunsets over the still Red Sea against the backdrop of the Saudi Arabian mountains on the other side of the coast is something that everyone has to see in their lifetime. Put it on your bucket list now! As soon as the sun starts to fade and the sea turns red, while you’re sipping your traditional bedouin tea with the smell of fruity-flavoured shisha pipes, you cannot actually imagine being anywhere else!

It’s also an amazing diving town and there are many, many diving schools where you can do a huge range of certified diving courses at your own leisurely pace. The underwater world of the Red Sea is definitely something that you want to see.

I found a kind of magic there that I have yet to find anywhere else.

To steal a line from a fortune cookie from my good friend, Big Daddy:

“May you step on the soil of many countries.”

I hope my photos portray some of that magic.

I lost - where the sea?

 

Yes, really!
