Meet Salina

Meet Salina

I met Salina through a mutual friend a couple years ago. She is such a fun easy-going girl. I enjoyed learning so much about Egypt through her travels, hopefully one day I can visit. Salina was born in Egypt and speaks fluent Arabic and English. She currently resides in West Los Angeles. Salina was kind to share pictures of her recent trip to Egypt.  She offers some travel and food suggestions.  Enjoy!

To enjoy a camel ride you can find them near the beaches or Giza pyramids. Hurghada is a beach resort along the Red Sea coast. There you can scuba dive and find beautiful color fish. They have many restaurants, bars and night clubs.
