Egypt & Middle East
Golan Heights Winery by Berthold Werner

Israel | Golan Heights Winery

Mention Israel and most would picture the biblical sites of Bethlehem, the historic mosques of Jerusalem, or even the sunny beaches of Tel Aviv, but would you ever dream of wineries? In fact, wine has been produced in Israel since biblical times, taking advantage of the region’s microclimates, producing internationally acclaimed wines.

Philae Temple, Egypt | The Jewel of the Nile

Tucked away on an island on the Nile a short boat ride from Aswan lies one of the most beautiful sights in all of Egypt. It’s not the biggest or the grandest of the Ancient Egyptian monuments. It’s not even the most important. Yet most travellers to Egypt come away saying that it was one of their favourite spots. It is Philae Temple.

Egypt | So how safe is it?

When you tell your friends and family that you are considering heading to Egypt you will be asked “is it safe?”. Let me revise that. It won’t be just your friends and family asking that. It will extend to anyone you come in contact with – your bank teller, your doctor, your coffee guy, anyone!
