Fantasy Holidays I Will Probably Never Go On Part 1

Desert Trekking and Diving in Ras Abu Galoum

I am completely fascinated by the desert landscape of the Middle East and the Sinai Peninsula bests them all. I've been trekking in the proper Sahara (with sand dunes and everything) and it was breathtaking but there's something about the rugged, angry terrain of red soil and scrub that makes me go a bit primal.

This coupled with the prospect of 10 dives in pristine, empty sites with only a buddy for company and sleeping under the stars does something funny to my tummy.

I will drink ice cold beer as the sky turns vermillion and smoke cigarettes with the men.
