Happy Gay Friday: I'm Back


It feels like I've been away for a very long time, while in reality we were only 8 days in Egypt. This was one of the most intense vacations we ever had. 
Partly because of all the family dynamics that went on in a group of 10 people (and wow, do I have some selfish and/or obnoxious siblings) and partly because of the beautiful experience of diving and snorkeling between the exotic and colorful fish and coral reefs of the Red Sea. I definitely want to do that again soon. The quiet and beautiful world under water is truly mesmerizing! I couldn't get enough of it.

This is probably also the first vacation during which I didn't manage to read much books. There simply was no time and when I happened to have a small window of time for myself, I couldn't concentrate enough on the words in the book because of everything that was still whirling in my head. Things we did, things that were said, things that happened. So, no book talk this Friday... I have to find my reading groove again first and then hopefully next Friday's post will be more 'bookish'. :)

Happy Gay Friday!

  1. Glad you had some quiet relaxing parts of the trip, even if they happened underwater. ;-D At least you didn't kill any of them... I hope.

    I would love to visit Egypt some day.

    1. Lol, nope, I didn't kill any of my family members. :) My younger brother did a good job of almost getting killed himself though... by kissing a cobra, getting out in the desert on his own, annoying my older brother, etc. ;)
      I hope you get a chance to go to Egypt one day, Tam. :D

    1. We plan to go back to Egypt one day with the two of us and visit more of the country. It has many beautiful places that I haven't seen yet. I hope you have the chance to go there too one day. :D
      I'm glad it's not just me who has that experience with family! It's rather exhausting to spend so many days with them, lol. I think I OD'ed on family. I don't want to see them for a while. *g*

    1. If you ever get the chance to go snorkeling in such a beautiful place as the Red Sea, grab it with both hands, hon! You'll love it. :D

      I'm sure I'll get my reading groove back too. :) I definitely keep trying to find that 5 star book which will pull me back in again! xoxo
