By day the hot sun fermented us; and we were dizzied by the beating wind. At night we were stained by dew, and shamed into pettiness by the innumerable silences of stars. ― T.E. Lawrence

This one stop on our much larger journey across Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. After leaving the crushing weight of Cairo and the pyramids, it's an unbelievable contrast to the empty and endless desert. It was a bit of a race to the dunes once the jeeps stopped; everyone wanted to be first to the top.


This is a short postcard as part of our photography section. We also have full guides and stories from many places around the world. Our Egypt guides and stories are coming soon.
