Egypt (new photos, go comment!)

So as some of you may know, I went to Sharm El Sheikh during half term.
The weather was pleasantly warm but bit cold in the evening.
 
ON Tuesday I went quad biking in the desert! It was awesome.
Went to Petra in Jordan on the friday. The first glimpse of the temple was absolutely mind blowing. You see it through a gap in the gorge, mostly obscured by where the gorge twists and turns. Then you walk out of the gorge, and its frikkin giant and amaaaazin. Lots of pretty rocks.
Didn't see the pyramids because the trip was full, nevermind, Some other day :)
 
The rest of the time was sent sunbathing and snorkelling around the reef just off of the beach. I bought an underwater camera but it appears that the processing people at tesco boolocked it up a bit. Then again, the film could've been damaged as it was pre-loaded. Diving was very hard. The sea was incredibly salty which made it very easy to float but incredibly hard to dive. When you did dive, the pressure was trumendous. Couldnt stay down for long, had to fight to stay underwater and I'm shit at holding my breath xD Saw plenty of fish though. Got a hilarious picture of a parrotfish. Why is it so funny I hear you ask? Cos its mouth is open. Take a look. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=41497&l= a5257&id=616270280 Ther are also the photos I oculdn't be arsed to resize for here xD
 
I stayed at the Hilton Sharks Bay. It wasn't as nice as I thought it would be, I thought there'd be better evening entertainment. The shower gel fuced with my exzema >< but the shampoo was godly. I also ended up watching german Big Brother in our room. Speaking of which, my bed was like a rock. It was a sofa bed, big but incredibly hard. Never actually swum in the pool, although it did look nice.
We got to ride to our room in a golf buggy on the first night so they didn't have to carry our bags xD
Infact, I didn't do much carrying of my bright pink suitcase xD
 
Was freezing when we got back to england, a bit like when we left. But then again, it usually is cold. Colder than in Essex. stupid Gatwick.
 
Oh and I nicked a book from the hotel cos I had't finished reading it. John Grisham's King Of Torts. God it's boring. I haven't finished it yet. Can't quite bring myself to read it. However at the airport I was looking for a nice thick book that would take me a while to finsih, and i found Duma Key - stepehn King. I thoroughly enjoyed it :) I also took my maths h/w on holiday with me xD Nothing like do differentials and intergrating on the beach.
 
So that was my holiday (woop)
