This is the last full day of our Gems of the Danube river cruise aboard the AmaBella. Here's our blog from day 6.
We continue into Bulgaria today. Our previous blog, describing the passage through the Iron Gates Gorge is here. Today we are in Vidin. AmaWaterways describes Vidin as "an extremely off the beaten path destination" and sure enough, that's what it is.
Today we start our river cruise from Budapest, Hungary to Bucharest, Romania aboard AmaWaterways' AmaBella. Follow along as we traverse the Balkans and brush up on communism, the Ottomans, eastern orthodox Christianity and some modern wars as well.
We've completed our trip with AmaWaterways on their Secrets of Egypt and the Nile cruise tour. We've had a great time on this truly bucket list destination.
We left the ancient worlds of Luxor early in the morning for a flight to Cairo. After landing we spend the rest of the day in Cairo. But just like that, we fly out late that night, ending our trip. We started in Amman Jordon and end in Cairo Egypt. We'll sum everything up in our next post. For now, enjoy our last day in Cairo.
It's hard to believe but we have one last Egyptian Temple to see on AmaWaterways' Secrets of Egypt and the Nile. Click here to start at the beginning of our trip. We're still in Luxor and a short bus ride away is Dendera Temple, dedicated to the god Hathor.
Today we are in Luxor, nearing the end of our Secrets of Egypt & the Nile tour with AmaWaterways. Luxor is a good sized city and home to one of the largest Temples - Karnac. This temple was built over thousands of years with over 30 pharaohs contributing to the final product. It contains a sacred lake for priests as well. This post is part of a series chronically our time AmaWaterways Secrets of Egypt and the Nile. Here's the start of the series.
