This year I woke up on the Nile and let me tell you life starts early...but fortunately once our boat was underway we could snooze for a little while longer and that suited me just find.
Our day was filled with visits to Kom Ombo and Edfu and I will share more about these two places later because there is a lot to tell and many photos to share.
It was a wonderful day filled with many historical blessing but the evening is what truly stands out for me.
Megan spoilt me with a special gift and the most beautifully worded card and then our tour guide had arranged for the chef to make a birthday cake just for me.
There was a gentleman from the French group also celebrating his birthday so it turned into quite the celebration.
Here are some photos....
