How to get from Israel to Sinai Egypt

How to get from Israel to Sinai Egypt

How to get from Israel to Sinai Egypt? To get to the Taba border, you will first have to go to Eilat city (south of Israel), you can do it by plane from Tel Aviv or by a bus. Because we didn’t want to lose the day, we took the night bus from Tel Aviv central station to Eilat, it was around 80 ILS – Israeli Shekels (20,9€;23,1$) per ticket (one way), the last bus leaves at midnight. Once you come to the city center, you can take a taxi which will cost around 50 ILS (13€;14,4$) or you can take a bus (line 15, comes every 30-45 min) straight to the Taba border.

How many days to spend in Sarajevo

Sarajevo is an amazing city, not big but with so much stuff to explore and so much stuff to do. We weren’t sure how many days to spend in Sarajevo so we booked a hostel in the center of the city for 3 nights, which was enough but I could easily stay one more, the place has so much to offer. You can explore the old town Bascarsija, eat some amazing local food, join a free walking tour, visit museums, hike, visit an abandoned bobsleigh and even ride a bicycle all the way back to Sarajevo.

Bacalar lagoon Mexico

After the tourist horror of Playa del Carmen and Tulum, we wanted to escape to a quiet place. We heard a lot of good things about Bacalar lagoon in Mexico, so we decided to check it out. It sounded cool, a unique lake of 7 colors, with big swings on the crystal water with white sand on the bottom, the place sounded like the Maldives to us.

Machu Picchu on a budget

Every year it attracts a lot of tourists and I think I can say that its one of the most visited cites in all South America. Almost 2500m high Macchu Pichhu is the lost city of the old Inca kingdom, and one of the 7 wonders in the world. The main thing is to get from Cusco to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu pueblo), and there is no road leading there. Aguas Calientes is the closest town to Machu Picchu, its a very cute little town, great to explore. Usually, you spend a night there and then early morning you head to Mach Picchu, by bus or on foot.
