This is a companion book to “Italy, Egypt, Turkey, Oh My!” in the Alexander Co. Abroad series. A book filled with photos from Egypt as we explored Cairo and Luxor, one of our first trips abroad after moving to the U.A.E. Our trip starts in Cairo seeing firsthand the troubled countries struggles and current living conditions most Egyptians face every day. Luxor breaths hope in the future as people struggle but maintain stable living conditions. Exploring a top five bucket list destination is hard to describe and harder to document. The idea was to capture both world famous attractions and everyday life as it happened.
