CAPTIVATING Egypt! That is how I would sum up my trip to the land of the ancient kings, queens, gods and their temples. Travel guide Lonely Planet says Egypt welcomes you with its mighty Nile and magnificent monuments, the beguiling desert and lush delta, and with its long past and welcoming, story-loving people.

That’s about right. Egypt is also one big museum with its national treasures and many more still waiting to be discovered and excavated.
