For the first time, and hopefully not the last, Diary on board is honored to contribute to the Lonely Planet Blogsherpa Travel Blog 4th Carnival with a post and thus join the initiative of my fellows on the Lonely Planet Blogsherpa Network. I know, I know… I have barely told you anything about me being part of the Lonely Planet Blog, Sherpa community, but after a year I still can't believe that I'm in it.
In a few days the year will end and, once again, I would like to make a traveler summary of 2012. This year has been a year of great trips and carpe diem. A year of taking advantage of life, health and money while you have it, because it has also been a year in which I have had the misfortune to verify that everything mentioned above can be very ephemeral.
At 6 in the morning we were called to wake up, since at 7 we had a visit to the temple of Edfu. We had been sailing during the night and when we woke up we were in front of the temple. In Edfu basically only the temple is visited. The cruise ships dock in front of him and at the end the visits leave.
That day we had booked an excursion with the hotel to visit the temples of Abydos and Dendera. They are off the tourist route and are the best preserved in Egypt. We left after breakfast at 7.30 and first we went to Abydos, which is further from Luxor than Dendera (about two and a half hours from Luxor).
One of the best connected hotels in Barcelona is the Barceló Sants hotel. Located just above the main train station in Barcelona, this hotel has recently completed its necessary renovation. The new Barceló Sants hotel is light years away from the one that opened in 1992 and never better said, since its current decoration has a retro space theme, in the style of 2001: A space odyssey, in which all the details have been taken care of .
New account of the 9-day trip to the Maldives. This time we spent our last hours at Kuredu Island Resort and in the middle of the morning we left for a new island in the Maldives. Here we tell you the arrival at Vilamendhoo Island Resort. It seemed to be a habit, but that morning we got up at six in the morning to take a dip in the beach.
