A recap from my vacation! Hope u like ♡
There is nothing like a sunny vacation. The warmth, happiness and joy among family and friends.
Since the weather was not so much fun here in sweden, I couldn’t help it but to let myself fly away on a trip to where is the sun and no where is better than home.
Flying to Egypt gave me a kind of boost that you can’t compare with anything else. Wonderful! Pure magic and pure bliss.
In Egypt I met my family and beloved ones, ate large amounts of watermelon, listened to music, had long breakfasts, stayed under the sun, and slept like an old man at times.
During my vacation I stayed in the Mena House hotel which was exceptional. My greeting upon arrival was so friendly.
My room had the swimming pool view and it was large, clean and very comfortable. I had my dinner at the one of their restaurants with the pyramids view in front of me, the food was plentiful, and delicious with a wide choice and variety.
The pool was spotlessly clean and the area around well kept and relaxing.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I would stay here again in a heart beat. In fact I want to go back to Egypt just to stay in this hotel.
Before the end of my vacation I also paid a visit to Sofitel El Gezira the ideally located hotel in central Cairo on the southern tip of Gezirah Island, on the Nile River.
That elegant French contemporary hotel has another amazing view of Cairo. The view of the Nile just breathtaking.
I can’t express my happiness for being at home. It really felt so good with some vacation. Love! XOXO
Beautiful sunset in Cairo, Egypt
What a great time of year to have the opportunity to come back to my hometown, from the snow to the sunshine and palm trees! On top of that a chance to connect and network with some of my besties, old and new friends.
Yesterday I had my last day in Cairo before heading back to Stockholm and since the sun was shining, I decided to go for a last walk around the city.
My morning started with a breakfast at Pottery Cafe in Zamalek, then I went to have lunch with my family before I headed into town to take some photos of the sun. Vacay days flew so fast!!
When I got back it was time to pack my bags, have dinner with my friends, say goodbye and leave to the airport. So sad to say goodbye to those awesome friends.. But I will definitely see you soon!
From the flight I saw Stockholm covered in snow like a winterland. So, another day with lots of snow and Cold! Ohhhhh I wish I could turn back in time and feel the sun on my face again.
Stockholm is that city which never stops, even in the middle of a snow storm. This year we have quite a cold winter.
Counting down to Christmas feels pretty anyway.
Now I will go to see my Swedish friends, and have some quality time with before the weekend finish.
Hugs & XOXO

I wake up with a sinking feeling because of my to-do list got longer than I expected during this trip. Yes I’m overwhelmed.
Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Our brains conjure up worst-case scenarios, which in turn scares us and makes us think it’s not possible to succeed.
Yes it is difficult to strategically plan your schedule to ease stress if you live in Egypt, but nothing is impossible. I tried as much as possible to plan events accordingly.
I woke up early everyday since I arrived with my heart racing thinking of the things I left undone.
My vision was for long (solo) walks, refreshing reading, deep conversations with my friends. What was I thinking?!
To finish official papers in Egypt, you need many days, so now I’m planning for a real vacation while I’m having one. Lolllll
In the end I’m enjoying what I’ve got. I’m sitting most of my time under the sun because it is rare to feel its warmth in Sweden during the xmas period.
So Happy Me Anyway! Kisses XOXO
