New York—What to Do in Ten Days

Ten days in New-York, not enough you will say! Absolutely not enough but for sure better than nothing, and despite this very short period of time we definitely could feel the spirit of the city, enjoy the streets, the non-stop activity, and the people. Check out the places we could visit and the photos we took. Who doesn’t want to visit New-York? Though we usually prefer to visit old historical countries or at least countries which culture is very different from ours, we must admit that the mythical city of New-York is a real exception to this rule! Paradoxically, many American people we met said they didn’t like New-York on the opposite to the foreigners....

Barbecue with friends :)

Barbecue with Tareq and Riham As it turned out that a barbecue was a very common practice in Canada and since TareK and Riham live in condos where we could rent a space for the Barbecue “for two hours” we decided to enjoy it. Each of us prepared their part, and voila! Except that none of us had ever done barbecue before! But fortunately we did’s screw it, and in fact it was very good. Chops and steaks prepared by Riham and Bassel handled the kebab. Couchsurfing and BBQ Barbecuing is also a good idea for couchsurfers, people or couchsurfers may start a Barbecue event to meet and...

Barbecue avec Tareq et Riham Comme on a finalement découvert que faire un barbecue était un pratique très courante au Canada et que dans la tour où habitent Tareq et Riham on pouvait louer pour deux heures le barbecue on a décidé d’en profiter. Chacun prépare de son côté quelque chose, et voilà! Sauf que personne d’entre nous n’avait jamais fait de barbecue avant!!! Mais heureusement on a pas trop raté, et en fait c’était même excellent. Les côtelettes et les steaks préparés par Riham et le kebab par Bassel. Voilà les photos: Couchsurfing et barbecue Le barbecue est aussi une bonne idée pour les couchsurfers ou les hôtes dans l’esprit de se...

Camping @ Ras Mohamed national park in Sinai – Egypt

We went camping in Ras-Mohamed in 2009, and it was quite an experience as we don’t have a car and on the top of that, we don’t drive. So we had to stay at Sharm-El-Sheikh for two days in a hotel and find someone who could take us to the desert and come back three days later to pick us up. This was during the Muslim feast (Eïd El Fitr) but thanks God we could find someone. So we left with exactly six bottles of water, some chinese noddles and tuna cans… To stay for three days in the middle of the desert in the first beginning of September at a temperature of 35/40 degrees. When we arrived, after searching for the site with the driver for an hour as the...
