One of the most fascinating places I’ve ever been, on par with the pyramids ✨ So so worth a 3am wake up and we were so lucky to see this place with nobody else around - less than 5 minutes after this photo was taken it was swarming with tourists 😱

All you need is l̶o̶v̶e̶ a passport! 🛂❤️ What's the most incredible place you traveled to this year? Mine was definitely Egypt! And the best thing I brought with me was my @avana #ashbury to stay hydrated in the heat and cut back on single use plastic. ✨
This is my last photo from Egypt, at least for now! I hope I was able to show you how incredibly beautiful and full of history this country is. I so recommend visiting! #sponsored #myavanabottle

The mighty and absolutely stunning Abu Simbel temples!! These temples were relocated by a joint team of UNESCO and egyptian gov to save them from getting drowned by the rising waters of lake Nasser after the construction of Aswan high dam! 😱

Getting here was not easy, but seeing this made every second of that bumpy car ride worth it 😍✨

Such an amazing trip to #AbuSimbel. I couldn’t pose cause the sun was in my eyes. Later we got shown around the Nubian village by their chief. Still no sign of Harrison Ford.

比起金字塔,更吸引人的其实是阿布辛贝神殿🗿🗿🗿🗿
这座3300年前的神作,让我深深感受到古埃及人有多么的厉害

2月21日是法老RamessesII拉美西斯二世的诞辰日,10月21日是他的登基日

按照拉美西斯二世的要求,把神庙设计成为只有那两天,旭日的金光才能照射到神像的现象。
每年的2月21日和10月21日,太阳升起的金色光束,都会准时直射Ramesessii法老神庙的大门,并穿过大神庙60m,依次照到后殿的阿蒙神、拉美西斯二世神和拉阿神这3座神像上

更讽刺的是,因为建造Aswan水坝,Abu Simbel神殿被迫迁移
3000年后的知识计算,最后照射到的日子,变成了22日,误差了1天!

天啊,三千多年前的神庙设计者的天文、星象、地理学、数学、物理学有多强大,还比3000年后的人类精准!

阿布辛贝Abu Simbel
是古埃及留给人类最美丽最宏伟的神庙,在Ramesses II 统治的第五年开始建,花了35年才完成
3300年前神庙设计精准运用天文学,星象学、地理、数学、物理学的推算,按照Ramesses II 的要求把神庙设计成为每年法老王Firaun生日2月21日&登基10月21日阳光就会照射在雕像身上…
以前的推理和研究真的很厉害!

Even with all the knowledge humanity has acquired over the past millennia, there are some achievements that can only be considered as magic! The inner-sanctum of #AbuSimbel Temple is one such place to contain the mysteries of ancient ingenuity, as @professionaltraveler discovered during her journey across #Egypt.

Trying to get a photo in front of any monument without anyone else in it is an extreme sport! #nailedit #nefetaritemple #abusimbel #egypt

Esses vasos eram representações de quatro deuses, todos responsáveis pela guarda dos órgãos internos das múmias. Como parte integrante do enxoval funerário, os mesmos eram depositados na tumba junto com seu proprietário.⠀

ABU SIMBEL ..
Patrimonio de la Humanidad, y ahora entendemos por qué, sin duda la sensación de ser tan pequeño en comparación a estas grandes piedras es algo que no puede faltar si estás pensando viajar a Egipto, para nosotros es un imprescindible y una de las mejores joyas de nuestro viaje y más al amanecer, aunque increíblemente nos levantamos a la 1 de la madrugada para ver esto( y ya sabéis lo que puede suponer levantarse a esas horas🤯) sin duda mereció la pena el madrugón 🤩. ... Ojalá despertar allí todos los días 🧡 ...

@ the Temples of Abu Simbel built by Ramses II & dedicated to the queen, Nefertari. These massive temples were actually relocated here due to flooding! Iconic! 👑👸🏻🇪🇬 #egypt #abusimbel #egyptiangoddess #unesco

El amor perdura por los siglos ❤️ Abu Simbel ( Templo de Ramsés ll y el que le construyó a Nefertari) ¿Sabias qué?
Ramsés ll, quedó totalmente fascinado por ella y le dedicó en su honor un templo, en el cual el Faraón colocó en la fachada una inscripción a Nefertari dedicándole estas palabras : “Aquella por quien el sol brilla” ☀️ Y un dato curioso que me llama la atención, es que se preocupó de que estás palabras solo estuvieran escritas en este templo y solo la podemos encontrar aquí.

Preciosa historia verdad? Yo quede fascinada 😊❤️

Aswan, formerly known as Swenett, during the Ancient Egyptian empire, is one of Egypt's most beautiful and culturally rich cities.

Located on the right bank of the river Nile, the city is small and quiet, which makes it perfect to be explored on foot.

Aswan is an oasis of peace, perfect for those looking to relax and discover Ancient Egypt at their own pace.

Egypt - Post 15

29th April, Day 6

I woke up very early as today was the Abu Simbel Tour and this tour starts at 5am. I received a call from the reception that my guide had arrived and I was glad it was a woman this time due to my previous experience with Samara.
It was a 3 hour drive but uneventful as my guide chose to sleep next to me instead of conversing. I was in a great mood and chose to listen to my favourite playlist of Bollywood music. On reaching there, I realized the drive was so worth it.

The statues of Nefertiri and Rameses II were huge. Every wall in that temple was a mystery, every statue giant sized, all this done by the King just to impress the people of Nubian. Same with the Queen's Temple, every wall depicting the queen's beauty.

Due to floods in the Nile, this entire creation was moved away from the river to preserve it. Unbelievable... #egyptdiaries #clientstories #experiences #abusimbel #egypttours

And here we are. Suddenly it's December again. 🎅 WHAT THE HECK? Time is flying too fast. ⏳
What a year 2019 has been. I quit my job at Google, traveled to 17 countries, got to see the Great Pyramid of Giza with my own eyes and was able to live my own dream job. It's still hard to believe that this is my job and that my hard work paid off. So grateful for everything.
Now tell me, what's the best thing that happened to you in 2019 so far?

When to go to Egypt? The best time to visit Egypt is from October to April, when temperatures are lower, although still very hot 🥵. To avoid the crowds at ancient sites like the Pyramids of Giza, Luxor, and Abu Simbel, try to avoid peak season (December and January). The best advice I can give you to beat the heat is to wear breathable fabrics and drink lots of water 💦. My @avana #ashbury wattle bottle kept me hydrated during our entire trip & kept my water super cold all day! 🧊 #ad #myavanabottle

Would you travel to Egypt? 🐪 Traveling never ceases to challenge my preconceptions of the world and to help me overcome false information. 👩‍💻 Sometimes our beautiful world seems like a scary place seen from our living rooms, staring at the news on the TV. It's never as terrifying as the media makes it look like. The bad stories get people's attention but the good ones go unreported. I'm obviously not telling you to go visit a conflict zone, but there aren't that many to be honest. Yesterday an Uber driver asked me about my home country, Brazil. He said he watched a movie that showed kids on the streets everywhere carrying guns and asked me if that's how it is there. Sure that does happen in very specific troubled areas, but Brazil is so much more than that and the vast majority of people, including myself, will never even see or get close to such thing. Egypt is the same. I heard so many scary stories, only to get here and feel completely safe and welcomed. We're so much more connected through technology but in some ways we're more isolated than ever, only being fed information that reinforces our biases and fears. I have one advice for you: go see it for yourself. Be genuinely interested in talking to locals and learning about their country and culture. Find common ground and celebrate differences. Let's make this a more tolerant world. ✨

What to PACK for Egypt? SAVE this post if you plan on traveling there. 👒👕👖👗 Packing for Egypt was really difficult. I could not find enough information online so here's my mini guide of what to pack:
. ▫️ Egypt is HOT ☀️: Pack light colors & breathable fabrics like linen or cotton.
. ▫️ COVER UP 🧕: Egypt is a Muslim country, so always bring a light cotton shawl with you to cover up. I didn't use mine as much as I thought I would and most tourists weren't as covered as I expected to see, but it was good to have it with me for moments I thought it was appropriate to wear it.
. ▫️ Knee-length or LONGER 👗: Don't wear anything too short but to be honest knee-length is perfectly fine in touristy areas. I saw lots of tourists wearing shorts and it didn’t seem to bother anyone, even though I don't recommend it out of respect. If you're gonna venture out without a group or in more remote locations, go longer and cover up more.
. ▫️ Pack a small BACKPACK 🎒: You will need a bottle of water, a shawl to cover up and cash with you (they don't really take credit card anywhere). My @herschelsupply Nova Mini Backpack is the perfect size to bring all the essentials with me during the day and it’s my best travel companion.
. ▫️Bring COMFORTABLE shoes 👣 -- You're gonna be on your feet a lot, so pack comfortable sandals and shoes.
Hope you found this helpful. Should I share more packing tips and hacks here when I travel? #herschelpartner #communityoftravellers #welltravelled

L O C A T I O N S | Abu Simbel, Aswan, Egypt

Abu Simbel Temple

The single entrance of Abu Simbel Temple is flanked by four colossal, 20 m (66 ft) statues, each representing Ramesses II seated on a throne and wearing the double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt. The statue to the immediate left of the entrance was damaged in an earthquake, causing the head and torso to fall away; these fallen pieces were not restored to the statue during the relocation but placed at the statue's feet in the positions originally found. Next to Ramesses's legs are a number of other, smaller statues, none higher than the knees of the pharaoh, depicting: his chief wife, Nefertari Meritmut; his queen mother Mut-Tuy; his first two sons, Amun-her-khepeshef and Ramesses B; and his first six daughters: Bintanath, Baketmut, Nefertari, Meritamen, Nebettawy and Isetnofret.

Is Egypt safe for women? This is a question I’ve gotten a lot during my time here and my answer is YES! (Save this post if you’re planning a trip soon!)
💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏼
Is it more conservative, yes. Should you dress more modestly, yes. Will you be haggled, yes. But never once did I feel endangered in the country. Like any country as a tourist you will stand out but a few ways to draw less attention to yourself are:
.
🗿Covering up. Although we were told you could wear anything (within reason) we chose cover our shoulders and knees as much as possible to out of respect for the Muslim culture
.
🗿Keep your cameras tucked away in a bag until ready to use them to draw less attention to yourself. I always travel with a mini backpack for a day bag
.
🗿Rent a guide!!! THIS IS MY NUMBER ONE TIP FOR EGYPT! Of course you could do it on your own but with any country so rich in history I tend to prefer to pay a guide. Plus when you have someone local with you who can speak the language it makes a huge difference! Our guide Sam from @traveltalktours was the best guide I’ve ever had... EVER!
