It’s been awhile! Between traveling, our kiddos gearing up for kindergarten, and all the summer activities, and my Instagram content creator job, I haven’t had much time to write on here! But I am so excited to finally share about our big anniversary trip from June. We went to France, Belgium, Switzerland, Monaco, and Egypt! I will be sharing about all of it but today, I am sharing about our final stop…Cairo, Egypt!
Visiting the Pyramids has always been the top place on Judd’s bucket list. When I planned our anniversary trip, I added this in as a surprise for him. We flew from Europe to Cairo for a few days. We had such a special experience (even with lost luggage, sigh)!
Cairo is definitely not the safest city, so I made sure to splurge on our hotel and it was worth every single penny! The hotel we stayed at…Marriot Mena House was a dream! This is not sponsored, we paid for our stay. We felt so safe, the resort is gorgeous, the staff goes over and beyond, and look at our views…
Does it get any better?
The hotel even decorated our room for us! See the video below! A huge thanks to Moahamed Othman, he went over and beyond to make our stay incredible!
When we got to the hotel I was a mess finding out our luggage was lost but the minute I stepped into this hotel, I felt at peace! It’s a five star hotel and you will feel that instantly.
The next day, we woke up and headed to breakfast. Can we talk about these breakfast views? I could not get over this! The buffet was the nicest breakfast buffet we’ve ever been to!
Then it was time to meet our private tour guide. If you go to Egypt, I HIGHLY recommend getting a private guide and a driver. We got a private tour of the pyramids and other exhibits in Cairo/Giza, as well as, our own car. We really enjoyed this! It was surreal being there!
The next day, we spent the entire day relaxing by the pool! After 10 days of traveling, our bodies needed this day!
Then we had the most magical evening of our entire trip…the Mena House surprised us with a romantic dinner in front of the pyramids at the 139 Pavilion (one of the many restaurants at the hotel)!
Not only were the views breathtaking but the food was absolutely incredible! And they surprised us with a violinist!
It was the best way to end our anniversary trip and an experience I will never forget!
