Flying into Venice and taking a train to Rome during a winter holiday opens the world to the inexperienced travelers. Bitten by the travel bug the duo are joined by a close friend, “Ms. Rosemary”, on a trip of a lifetime to Cairo and Luxor in Egypt before flying to Istanbul and the ancient city of Ephesus in Turkey. The trio explores the awe-inspiring ancient Egyptian Pyramids and Temples while witnessing the daily hardships and struggles of modern day Egyptians.
