#2 Walk With Me To Parea, Huahine, French Polynesia by @dmcamera

If you are like me, and like to explore places that are “far from the madding crowd”, then you will love Huahine, I promise you! Probably French Polynesia's best kept secret and known as The Garden Of Eden, the only bit of night life on Huahine is on Huahine-Nui(Big Huahine - the northern island), but I will cover that in a future post! For the time being, I am still writing about our walks on Huahine-Iti (The Small Island), the southern and more remote of the two islands.

#3 A Week in Cape Coast by @for91days

Apart from the castle, todays’ Cape Coast is basically another Ghanaian town like others we had seen. But more aggressive. We saw a couple fights while walking around the streets (picking up a stone seems to be the Ghanaian way to signal “it’s about to go down”), and were regularly harassed by unfriendly beggars who transitioned without warning from pitiful to angry. And there were a curious number of foreign volunteers here, all of them packed into the same Western-oriented cafes, sipping moringa juice and one-upping each other with stories. We were ready to leave after our first hour of exploration.

The Language

There is no doubt that you know that Egypt is a country that speaks Arabic, but many of its inhabitants speak fluent English along with many other foreign languages. The Egyptian people are so friendly that you can feel it by talking to the hotel's drivers and staff. To speak with the citizens on the street without any concern.

The Currencies

Do not worry about prices. The official currency there is the Egyptian pound. The prices of products on the market are much cheaper than many other countries around the world, especially the prices of vegetables and fresh fruits. Even the fees for access to archaeological sites are much cheaper than other countries. Therefore, if you are interested in shopping, you have unlimited choices during the purchase process during your stay. There are three major markets (Aswan, Cairo, and Luxor) in order of preference, and the Khan Al Khalili bazaar is the largest market in Cairo. If you want to use an ATM, they usually accept Visa and MasterCard cards. You can find ATMs around you; you can still get cash by going to a bank branch where most banks work from Sunday to Thursday from 9.00 to 15.00.

The Transportation

The process of travel to Egypt can be deceptive without proper planning. The distances between the Egyptian cities are fairly long. It is important to choose the appropriate means of transport during the navigation process to avoid the problems of transferring between different destinations during the trip. So, if you plan to book Egypt tour packages, then you will have an amazing chance to schedule your time and guarantee your safety.

There are many travelers who are in a state of surprise when visiting Egypt for the first time; they find it different from any other country they visited later, where Egypt is an Islamic country. So please respect their faiths and always try to be more conservative in your attitudes especially in public places like Kissing or fondling your partner or wearing revealing clothes, always remember that homosexuality is illegal in reality Islamic countries.
