I arrived to palm trees, sandy mountains and a warm breeze. We were met at the airport by one of Antoinette's colleagues, a local Egyptian. He was friendly and brought us to our accommodation. When walking through the centre you cant help but notice the tall trees and the aroma of the beautiful flowers. There are lots of things I love about the centre. The meditation area to sit and listen to the wonderful stories of Antoinette About ancient Egypt and how she gives mean to life, the swimming pool were you can take a quick dip to cool down, the sun beds, and The Food! Dylan was an amazing chef and cooked tasty Egyptian meals if you wanted. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and the sound of the mosque's prayers really set the atmosphere. As a 17 year old girl in leaving cert year, it is a great place to go and get away from the stressful and hectic life of Ireland.
Thank you so much to Antoinette, Doney and Dylan. You really made my trip wonderful.
