This is not typical Tinder material, this is material. I mean what are the chances that the first person I 'meet' on Tinder is sat next to me at the exact time I randomly decide to pop in to hear a Somalian Denim designer talk about Japanese ankle fads?
So when I was recently in Dubai, I was excited to try Tinder out in a more cosmopolitan city, one that builds its buildings tall with moats around them, and lacks any sort of pedestrian areas that aren't malls, keeping human contact to a minimum, repressing sexual urges and replacing it with consumerism. Two days later, I'm with my brother and a friend at a massive urban culture fair in Dubai set up so that insanely handsome men with buns and beards and stunning women in oversized sports jerseys can feel like they live in Tumblr and make you feel aesthetically inadequate. It's literally a one in a million, but a little voice inside me tells me it's the same girl.
If someone also likes you back you can then chat together and, I assume, set up some sort of sexy date.
You would be excused if you haven’t heard of Tinder around these parts before; if you sign up to the dating app in Egypt you will usually be served up a conveyer belt of married couples, baby pictures and Quran quotes.
The foreign office give good advice regarding travel to egypt so i would suggest looking at that.
the red sea area is fine, as is cairo at the moment, but that doesn't mean it can't change on a daily basis and if the basis of your trip is to see them then it may be wise to wait.
I wonder if anyone has ever attempted to see the Pyramids with their children? We've been looking for child friendly hotels nearby, to possibly combine with relocation (by train? It upset me I've been quite a few times, the best way I would suggest to see the pyramids etc with kids is by going to Cyprus on holiday and doing the full day trip from there.
) later in the holiday to a hotel or all inclusive accommodation by the Red Sea. You fly from paphos about 6am, then spend a day in Cairo - they take u to pyramids, Egyptian museum, cruise down Nile, lunch overlooking pyramids, night markets then fly back. Not sure which pyramids u can see from sharm as its a long way from Cairo, maybe its the luxor ones?
We're making cities safer, smarter, and more connected.Just wondered if anyone has tried this before / could recommend? Stayed in sharm el sheik which is miles away but loads of places do trips it's pretty easy to organise. Hi As others have said you are probably better basing yourself elsewhere and then taking a trip to Cairo instead of staying in Cairo itself.Its a big city so there aren't really any resort style hotels that cater really well for families.), Cairo musuem and usually lunch and free time in the tourist bazaar or a short nile cruise.There are no pyramids in Luxor as such, only a few small ones that were likely to be the tombs of workers etc rather than pharoahs.I then shove the phone in her face, yelling: "Look, look it's you! Why would someone who has actively gone out to meet you online for the chance of meeting you offline, ignore you when they see you in real life? " She shushes me with her index finger as Olaf Hussein begins his talk. The flight is about 50 mins to an hour but add in transfers each way and waiting at airport etc and you're probably about 3-4hours anyway.Both of these options (as well as the Cyprus option) will give you time to see the Pyramids, Spynhx (sp?My brother and friend spend the rest of the night mockingly asking women if they’ve met me on Tinder before. I try to forget about the awkwardness of the situation and indulge in this modish man-bun-beard festival. After a heavy night I wake up the next morning to find a notification on my phone.
