Relaxing in Luxory

*this blog was written on July 29*

We arrived at 5am here in Luxor.  We got a ride to our hotel and they let us check in early (for an additional charge of course).

Our room is amazing.  We share a huge balcony with 10 other rooms which overlooks the Nile and the Valley of the Kings.  We have a king size bed, flat screen TV on the wall, and even a little sun room leading to the balcony.  Perfect.

We were so exhausted from our past couple busy days that we just ended up relaxing, napping, and enjoying some QT together.  After a restful afternoon we grabbed some dinner and took a sunset falucca (traditional wooden sailing boat) ride on the Nile.  We sipped on wine and enjoyed a peaceful ride as it grew dark.

As we returned to our hotel we heard music and could see dancing so of course we joined the party.  We went down to the restaurant, sat down, and virtually immediately the party ended.  Of course it did.  That didn’t stop us from enjoying some snacks, having a few drinks, and taking advantage of the beautiful cool night.  The fact that the seating area was surrounded by high-power fans helped the night be artificially cool…we thoroughly enjoyed this fact.

After a couple hours we realized it was time to turn in.  We have to get up at 4:30am for our morning balloon ride.  Can’t wait!
