Egypt (8) - We miss the boat!

Another lazy morning and the last on the boat. Lunch was at 12:30, we said our goodbyes and left for our next hotel. A one night stop in Karnak at the Sofitel before heading to Sharm el Sheik tomorrow. It was sad leaving the good friends we had made during the week but exciting to embark on the next chapter of our adventure.

The staff at the Sofitel were less than 100% helpful. The room was a little tired. The pool was a bit busy and had terrible music. The food was bland - everything came with chips. In short we missed the boat - A LOT. I can't help thinking that we had been spoilt and nothing would actually measure up for the rest of the week. We found a quiet corner overlooking the river, sat in the sun and read our books. The 'relaxing' part of the holiday had just begun.
