In 2013 I asked my family if they wanted to go on a vacation together. My mother, who had never traveled outside of Scandinavia, was at first nervous, but after a few days, she decided to conquer her fear and anxiety of airports and flying and joined us.

My plan was originally to take a trip from Hurghada to Cairo, to see the Great Pyramids, but as the revolution started when we was there, all tour operators cancelled any travel to Cairo.

Instead, we got a relaxing vacation by the beach. We took a boat out in the Red Sea to snorkel, swim and to see dolphins, as well as a quad bike trip into the desert.

The trip didn’t go according to my plan, but we ended up with a relaxing vacation, with nice memories together I will never forget.
