We are hours back from our stay at Movenpick El Gouna. A wonderful vacation. However leaving Hurghada was among the worst travel nightmares my small group has experienced. Hundreds of people en masse pushing and fighting to get through to 3 security stations. Our travel hosts told us (ha ha) this is common on Thursdays and Saturdays. We were completely unprepared for this. It took more than an hour just to get from the curb and in the door--shoulder to shoulder and bag to bag the entire way. The poor children and their parents. Is this how it goes in Hurghada? I understand that not everyone the world over shares the same fondness for a nice neat line but this was over the top! Please, please don't lecture me on the challenges of traveling in a foreign country--if you're one of the mean people who sometimes posts here just keep moving.
