Egypt – Nubian Landscapes

Browsing through my pre-blog archives distracted me from the big two of China that I have yet to chronicle. So I return to Egypt with this montage from Aswan, where Arabia merges into Africa.

Home to the Nubians (from the land of ‘Nob’ or ‘Gold’) whose powerful kingdom once stretched from here to Khartoum in Sudan.

A brilliant canvas of burnished copper dunes cascading down to the verdant edge of a silvery, sparkly Nile. If you are ever in Aswan I recommend drifting dreamily down this ancient waterway on a felucca and surrendering – for a few hours – to the stillness of the tranquil Nubian landscape.

Until next time…happy travels, no matter where life takes you!

  1. I’m an Egyptian and I would love to tell you that Aswan is one of the most places I enjoy no matter how many times I go .. It brings inner peace to my soul , Cheerfulness to my heart 🙂

    If you came Egypt again .. Visit Alexandria and Saint Catherine too .. You will definitely love them.

Let me know what you think
