2017-10-19 to 23 Cairo, Egypt to London to KL to Singapore to Melbourne to Hobart Today we leave the great city of Cairo which we would love to visit again in the future Our comfortable hotel situated in Giza during our stay in Cairo Collecting us to take us to the airport is Mohamed, the Cairo based Egyptian Abercrombie & Kent Representative with our driver Ali. Mohamed went out of his way to look after us during our stay and Ali safely drove us and our guide to all the local sites The very large shopping complex called The First Mall conveniently situated beside the hotel Again we cross the great River Nile The traffic in Cairo can be absolutely chaotic however today we had a reasonable run to the airport On the way we see a few unfortunate mishaps We pass several churches ……we pass yet another large statue of the famous Rames II We arrive at the Cairo International Airport 50 minutes later Goodbye to Mohamed and Ali Three hours later our Egyptian Air flight departs Cairo for London Fabulous sunset On arrival in London we have a night at a nearby Heathrow Airport Hotel Preparing for our flight with Malaysia Airlines to KL the following day Unfortunately after departing from Heathrow Airport with Malaysia Airlines we had a couple of issues 2 hours into the flight and unfortunately we had to return to London. We spent another 24 hours in London and finally flew to KL the next evening Arriving in KL As we could not get a suitable flight to Australia from KL we were flown with Singapore Airlines to Singapore to join a Qantas flight to Melbourne One of the most tiring and longest journeys returning home to Tasmania …….it took 88 hours from leaving our hotel in Cairo!!!!! It is so wonderful to be back home with our family and little granddaughters all dressed up with some Egyptian gear !! Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
