Since Feb 2008


Edinburgh, United Kingdom

I am retired from my former job and am now self-employed. My husband and friends that we usually travel with are also retired. I live in Scotland with my husband and two cats. I love to travel and see different places, but I think of Luxor as my 'second home'. It was so long ago now that I first visited Egypt – Cairo and the Pyramids from a cruise from Cyprus, and that started the ball rolling. We then went on a Nile cruise for a week then stayed in Luxor for a week, and that was us hooked. We’ve probably been travelling to Luxor now for around 20 years. These links are to my holiday blog pages http://myluxorholiday.blogspot.com and http://myluxorholiday2013.blogspot.co.uk/ This link is to my Flickr photo sets http://www.flickr.com/photos/marlscat/sets I've also done a list of hints and tips for travellers to Luxor and others on dress codes, tipping and more. You can view them through 'contributions' on my profile page
