Oh man. I love the Red Sea.

Was hoping it would calm down out out there. Such a wonderful diverse place. Click image for larger version

Re: Oh man. I love the Red Sea.

Interesting. I've been living in the Red Sea area (Hurghada all the way south to the Halayeb region for the past 8 years or so (out of a total of 20 years here). Haven't heard of any "imminent threats" here as of yet. However, with that being said, the Sinai part of Egypt is somewhat a "world apart" from mainland Egypt. Even so, security checks here have become more frequent with police sometimes going from building-to-building, flat-to-flat checking ID's and foreigner's visas. 20-years here is enough, I'm outta here for good in 10-days. Used to be a great country to live in....now, not so fun since the 2011 revolution.

Still a great place to visit and I highly recommend it as a vacation destination. Enjoy the people (they're usually wonderful individuals), the diving and deserts, go see the pyramids and the Cairo museum....but don't stay too long. Enjoy yourself, but go home.

Re: Oh man. I love the Red Sea.

Loved diving in Sharm. I worked in Cairo doing fire risk assessments and first aid training in orphanages for Face charity. The people were friendly and amazing. Wandered around the streets at night. Ate street food and chatted to the locals. Never once felt unsafe or intimidated. So sad that the whole area is sort of out of bounds.
