What to see on the Nile Cruise?

General information.

In 2011, we spent one-week vacation on the Nile cruise in Egypt. We bought all-inclusive package tour, including flights between Helsinki and Hurghada, transfers between Aswan and Hurghada, all visits on ancient temples, nights on a cruise boat with food and drinks.

How it was! Awesome. All the temples leave on visitors an unforgettable impression. There is much to see and to shoot photos. I shot 1926 photos of which I’ll present 361 in eight posts! We visited to these temples: Karnak, Luxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatsesup, Colossi of Memnon.

The cruise is like making a time travel, travelling back in history for thousands of years. The scenery changes slowly and life along the banks of the Nile seems to be slow life, no hurry. From time to time we encountered other cruise ships, onshore we saw bovines, camels, fishermen, shacks, debris, palm trees, distant mountains, and as the evening progresses, spectacular sunsets.

The slow life continues on a cruise boat, eating, drinking ,sun bathing, admiring sceneries, resting and swimming in a pool. Everyday worries and care are behind and it’s time to enjoy life. The mind is filled with the excitement of waiting to see all those old temples.

This post:

Cruise photos on the Nile 1.

As I told already in introduction, life on the shores of Nile is slow, without any hurry and now you see it thru my photos. Donkeys, men repairing things, fishing, other cruise boats, row boats, a Lady fetching water from the Nile for washing clothes, transporting hay on boats, distant mountains, men’s discussions while resting, palms, cattle raising, transport of palm leaves on a donkey carriage, a boy drinking water directly from the Nile, sellers of goods, who sold rugs and clothes directly from their boat, which were tied to the cruise ship and sun sets on the Nile. That’s what we saw from our cruise ship.

En español:

¿Qué ver en el crucero por el Nilo?

Información general.

En 2011, pasamos una semana de vacaciones en el crucero por el Nilo en Egipto. Compramos un paquete turístico con todo incluido, incluidos vuelos entre Helsinki y Hurghada, traslados entre Aswan y Hurghada, todas las visitas a templos antiguos, noches en un crucero con comidas y bebidas.
¡Fue maravilloso! Increíble. Todos los templos dejan en los visitantes una impresión inolvidable. Hay mucho para ver y tomar fotos. ¡Saqué 1926 fotos de las cuales presentaré 361 en ocho publicaciones! Visitábamos a estos templos: Karnak, Lúxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatshepsut, Colosos de Memnon.

El crucero es como viajar en el tiempo, viajar en la historia durante miles de años. El paisaje cambia lentamente y la vida a lo largo de las orillas del Nilo parece ser lenta, sin prisas. De vez en cuando nos encontramos con otros cruceros, en tierra vimos bovinos, camellos, pescadores, chozas, escombros, palmeras, montañas distantes y, a medida que avanza la noche, espectaculares puestas de sol. La vida lenta continúa en un crucero, comiendo, bebiendo, tomando el sol, admirando paisajes, descansando y nadando en una piscina. Las preocupaciones y los cuidados cotidianos están atrás y es hora de disfrutar la vida. La mente está llena de la emoción de esperar para ver todos esos viejos templos.

Fotos de crucero por el Nilo 1.

Como dije anteriormente en la introducción, la vida en las costas del Nilo es lenta, sin ninguna prisa y ahora lo puede ver a través de mis fotos. Burros, hombres que reparan cosas, pesca, otros barcos de crucero, botes de remos, una Dama buscando agua del Nilo para lavar ropa, transportar heno en botes, montañas distantes, discusiones de hombres mientras descansa, palmeras, cría de ganado, transporte de hojas de palma en un carro de burros, un jovencito bebiendo agua directamente del Nilo, vendedores de productos, que vendían alfombras y ropa directamente desde su bote, que estaban atados al crucero y a las puestas de sol en el Nilo. Eso es lo que vimos en nuestro crucero.

En francais:

Que voir sur le navire de croisière sur le Nil?

Informations générales.

En 2011, nous avons passé une semaine sur la croisière sur le Nil en Égypte. Nous avons acheté un forfait tout compris, comprenant les vols entre Helsinki et Hurghada, les transferts entre Assouan et Hurghada, toutes les visites dans des temples anciens, des nuits en bateau de croisière avec nourriture et boissons.

Comment c’était! Impressionnant. Tous les temples laissent aux visiteurs une impression inoubliable et profonde. Il y a beaucoup à voir et à prendre des photos. J’ai pris 1926 photos dont 361 dans huit messages! Nous avons visité ces temples: Karnak, Louxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatsesup, Colosses de Memnon.

La croisière est comme un voyage dans le temps, remonter dans l’histoire depuis des milliers d’années. Le paysage change lentement et la vie sur les rives du Nil semble être lente, sans hâte. De temps en temps, nous rencontrâmes d’autres navires de croisière. À terre, nous voyions des bovins, des chameaux, des pêcheurs, des cabanes, des débris, des palmiers, des montagnes lointaines et, au fil de la soirée, des couchers de soleil spectaculaires. La vie lente continue sur le bateau de croisière: manger, boire, se bronzer, admirer des paysages, se reposer et nager dans une piscine. Les soucis et les soins quotidiens sont derrière et il est temps de profiter de la vie. L’esprit est plein d’attente de voir tous ces vieux temples.

Ce post:

Photos de croisière sur le Nil 1.

Comme je l’ai déjà dit en introduction, la vie sur les rives du Nil est lente, sans hâte et maintenant vous la voyez à travers mes photos. Des ânes, des hommes qui réparent des objets, des pêcheurs, d’autres bateaux de croisière, des chaloupes, une dame qui va chercher de l’eau du Nil pour laver les vêtements, transport du foin sur des bateaux, des montagnes lointaines, des discussions d’hommes au repos, des palmiers, des élevage du bétail, des feuilles de palmier transport d’âne, un jeune garçon buvant de l’eau directement du Nil, des vendeurs de marchandises, qui vendaient des tapis et des vêtements directement de leur bateau, lesquels étaient attachés au bateau de croisière et aux couchers de soleil sur le Nil. C’est ce que nous avons vu de notre bateau de croisière.

Em português:

O que ver num cruzeiro no Nilo?

Informação geral.

Em 2011, passamos uma semana de férias no cruzeiro do Nilo no Egito. Compramos um pacote com tudo incluído, incluindo voos entre Helsinque e Hurghada, transferências entre Aswan e Hurghada, todas as visitas a templos antigos, noites em um barco de cruzeiro com alimentos e bebidas.
Como foi! Impressionante. Todos os templos deixavam aos visitantes uma impressão inesquecível. Havia muito para ver e tirar fotos. Tirei 1926 fotos, das quais vou apresentar 361 em oito postagens! Visitamos esses templos: Carnaque, Luxor, Kom Ombo, Philae, Hatsetsup, Colossos de Mêmnon.

O cruzeiro é como fazer uma viagem no tempo, viajando de volta à história por milhares de anos. O cenário muda lentamente e a vida ao longo das margens do Nilo parece ser lenta, sem pressa. De tempos em tempos, encontramos outros navios de cruzeiro; em terra, vimos bovinos, camelos, pescadores, barracos, destroços, palmeiras, montanhas distantes e, à medida que a noite avança, pôr do sol espetacular. A vida lenta continua em um barco de cruzeiro, comendo, bebendo, tomando banho de sol, admirando paisagens, descansando e nadando em uma piscina. As preocupações e os cuidados diários estão atrasados e é hora de aproveitar a vida. A mente está cheia da emoção de esperar para ver todos aqueles velhos templos.

Fotos do cruzeiro no Nilo 1.

Como já disse na introdução, a vida nas margens do Nilo é lenta, sem pressa e agora você vê através das minhas fotos. Burros, homens consertando coisas, pescando, outros barcos de cruzeiro, barcos a remo, uma Dama buscando água do Nilo para lavar roupas, transportando feno em barcos, montanhas distantes, dos homens nas discussõe quando aquando do repouso, palmeiras, criação de gado, transporte de folhas de palmeira num carro de burro, um menino bebendo água diretamente do Nilo, vendedores de mercadorias, que vendiam tapetes e roupas diretamente de seu barco, amarrados ao navio de cruzeiro e pores-do-sol no Nilo. Isto foi o que vimos em nosso navio de cruzeiro.

    Comment by Peter Klopp — January 2, 2020 @ 17:33 | Reply

    • Hello Peter.

      Yes, indeed fulfilling a dream. I read the historical novel (1945) of Mika Waltari who described how the life was in era of Pharaoh Akhenaten of the 18th Dynasty. He described the life of Sinuhe, which was actually quite similar we saw on the river banks of Nile 2011. Wikipedia says: “The novel is known for its high-level historical accuracy of the life and culture of the period depicted”. So, one novel inspired us to make this cruise!

      Thank you for your comment.

But now … What an interesting blog series and how wonderful to see all you showed from Karnak, Luxor and other places close to the Nile! I am greatly impressed by the temple pillars and further architectural details.

    I noticed that Your photos taken during the boat trip on the river Nile are confirming very well what you tell about the fact that life on the shores of the river is slow. No matter if one is watching the photos of the small boats, of the fishermen and travellng vendors or the herdsmen with their cows, goats or sheep.

    Matti, thanks for showing your souvenirs of Egypt. I enjoyed your blog posts very very much. You did see quite a lot in only one week!

    Best wishes and have a pleasant second half of the week.
    Michèle

    • Hello Deb.

      Thank you very much for your kind comment. I have to confess that I have not tasted Tamales. I only can imagine that they must be delicious – at least the name sounds exotic in my ears.

      Happy 2020!

    • Bonjour Maly.

      Oui, en regardent des photos d’été en hiver, nous donne envie d’être en été, peut-être sur une plage ou déambulent dans une belle ville qui a de beaux jardins, de magnifiques musées, se promener dans la nature pure en explorant les merveilles de Mère Nature, mais moi j’aimerais m’asseoir dans un bar à la Ville Lumière et regarder gens qui passent. Merci

      Bonne année 2020 à toi et à ta famille!
