Egypt (Days Ten & Twelve)

Days Ten & Twelve - Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt
(Final Egypt Post)
We spent both day ten and day twelve enjoying our resort in Sharm el-Sheikh on the Red Sea. After spending the previous days doing a lot of traveling, it was so nice to just relax at a beautiful resort.
This was the view of the Red Sea that we enjoyed from our room.
The resort was amazing. After spending the previous week and half in the desert, it was refreshing to see so much vegetation.

The resort had several infinity pools just feet from the Red Sea.
One of the coolest features of the resort was the floating pier that went to the edge of the reef. This made it very easy to go snorkeling without disturbing the coral in the reef.
The reef by our resort is one of the best dive spots in Sharm el-Sheikh. The water was crystal clear and full of beautiful coral and fish. After five minutes of snorkeling, we both came to the surface and agreed that this is the best snorkeling we have ever done.
Every part of the resort was perfect, especially the restaurants. While talking to our server at one of the restaurants, we were surprised to find out that we were the only Americans he had served in the two years he has worked there. We don't know where the other Americans are... this place is fantastic!
This was a great way to wrap up a trip of a lifetime. We are grateful we had the opportunity to go and see so many historic and amazing places. We also enjoyed the time spent together for two weeks during another adventure. Traveling always brings us closer together!
