Photos from our Travels in Luxor, Egypt
Last week, when I was flipping through some old travel photos in search of our next Photo of the Week, I was reminded that we still have so many photos and stories that have yet to be shared.
So, in an effort to rectify our tardy behaviour, we’ve uploaded a few photos from our last trip to Egypt, specifically from Luxor and the West Bank (home to the many pharaoh tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens).
We hope you like them!
