Last of the Seven Wonders

Of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only the Great Pyramid of Giza remains. Although the following photographs were taken some time ago and that it´s been a while since I have been back to Egypt, I remember my first glimpse of the Pyramids of Giza as if it had been yesterday. My first impression was one of awe. I was standing in front of a structure built over 4500 years ago by one of the world´s first civilizations! It´s not only thousands of years weighing upon you but also the immensity of the Pyramid and the size of the stones that make it up, something you don´t quite realise from a distance. I have been back to Egypt since and I always make a point of visiting the Pyramid. Obviously, Egypt is much more that Giza. From Alexandria in the north, to Luxor, Aswan, and Abu Simbel in the South, the Sinai Desert and the Red Sea. A trip and experience I wanted to share.
