While Egypt is mostly known for incredible man-made sites such as the Sphinx and the many pyramids, the White Desert is offers utterly breathtaking natural landscape. In fact, visiting the White Desert was the highlight of my trip to Egypt.
I promise you won’t find gag gifts, or single-use items, or “fad” items. Instead you’ll find products I truly love (and have bought with my own money), causes I support, and gifts that do good. Conspicuous waste should never be celebrated.
From camera protection, to portable door alarm, these are must-have travel items under $25 for practical, non-sense travelers.

Itinerary, highlights, lowlights, and practical tips on visiting Egypt independently as a solo female traveler.
If you’re looking for an overnight backpacking trip from Bishop, I highly recommend this trail from South Lake to Dusy Basin. 6 miles one way, 2000 ft in elevation gain. It’s steep, but short with big sceneries. It’s an Eastern Sierras classic!
My recent three-week trip to the Dolomites and Lake Garda was one of the best trips I’d taken in awhile. Now I’m sharing our of 3 week Dolomite itinerary with you: best hikes, viewpoints, stunning lakes, and how best to see them.
The Italians’ plan was crude but simple: dig a tunnel to bring a large amount explosives under the Austrian troops who controlled the summit – Lagazuoi Piccolo – and blow them up. Today, hiking Lagazuoi tunnels is one of the most popular activities in the Dolomites.
The reason to visit the Dolomites can be summed up in one sentence: it’s the ultimate alpine playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Jack and I recently spent 3 weeks in the Dolomites and we loved it so much. The whole region is one breath-taking panorama after another.
Where to go and what to do in Iran. Iran’s best places to visit: mosques, palaces, and natural landscapes.
Utah in winter? What a great idea! We came to Utah for a mini winter road trip during Christmas holiday. With a rented campervan, we headed south to St. George and nearby Snow Canyon State Park where winter is mild enough for some sandstone scramble and desert hiking.
The following is my experience getting an Iran tourist visa as an American passport holder. TLDR: it wasn’t easy. I found that there was a lot of outdated information online when searching for the latest Iran visa application process for US citizens – so I thought I’d share my experience here. The procedure will be similar to Canadian/UK passport holders as well.
