I've been dreaming of a Nile cruise for years already and finally the dream comes true.

Madelein, I know what you mean but they tell me you just have to be careful not to drink tap water or vegetables that are rinsed in water. But in any case I'm going to take my precautions and take some medicine from here.
I know a few people that were in Egypt that had tummy trouble but I know more people who have been and didn't have any trouble at all, so I hope I'll be one of the last group !! :)

WOW!!!! Congratulations, Carine!! You're going to have an amazing time (yes, just don't drink the water). THe author Tess Gerritsen is in Egypt right now, no doubt having the time of her life.

16 years ago I was in Hinchinbrook Hospital, Huntingdon, Cambs, UK, giving birth! My beautiful daughter is 16 today! I cant believe that the time has flown so quick! She has grown into a wonderful headstrong young girl!
