The Nile River

"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries." - Aldous Huxley

The Nile River

Seeing the River Nile for the first time, one can understand Herodotus word "Egypt is the gift of the Nile". 
It is the second longest river in the World and is truly the lifeblood of Egypt. 
Back in ancient times, The Nile was worshipped and many civilizations were established along its banks from Nubia right up to the shores of the Mediterranean sea.
 
Today, taking a boat trip is the most fascinating way to know the pharaonic civilization; there are 2 kinds to Nile cruise trips:
 
- Nile cruise (Luxor / Aswan & vice versa)
- Lake Nasser cruises (Aswan / Abu Simbel & vice versa)
