Postcard From . . . Aswan, Egypt


“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous 

Thank you to Jan Zak at Egyptian Sidekick for submitting this postcard and quote! “This photo is from our trip to Aswan, in Egypt’s Nubia. We were on a reconnaissance tour for Egyptian Sidekick, a non-profit, fair-tourism project involving local. English-speaking, Egyptian university students.  And yes, the photo is supposed to be upside down to emphasize how still the water was during that day.” -Jan


My passion for capturing memories through the lens of my camera, my love for food and the joy I find in reflecting on my travel memories using a pen and paper results in a series of blog entries filled with warmth, pure happiness and inspiration. I hope to share a little bit of myself and my adventure of life with you.


  • Thank you so much Alli for posting our postcard! Egypt is going through seismic social changes – all for the better we hope, and it is our mission to convince travelers from around the world to return.
