Obviously I enjoy travel
in Turkey, but I can say for
one of those places everyone should
visit in this lifetime.
I didn't always think this. I knew
little about Egypt before Editions
Berlitz asked me to write
a pocket guidebook to the country.
I studied Egypt's history, I learned
about the modern country, I went there
and did my research, and I came to
the conclusion that everyone who wants
to consider themselves well-traveled

The pyramids at Giza, the temples
along the Nile, the breathtakingly
beautiful art, architecture
and culture of this ancient-modern country are
like no other.
Not only that, I found the Egyptians to be among the most
I had ever met.
It's possible to visit Turkey
and Egypt on a single trip,

the culture, cuisine and people in
both countries in as little as two
weeks. My friend Mr
