Quick Notes on a travel memoir about Egpyt



Author : Douglas Misquita
Publisher : Pothi.com

Rating : 2 / 5

Impressions of Egypt by Douglas Misquita is a short book about his 1 week travel memoirs in 2010. The book is self published and only 40 odd pages. If you are visiting Egpyt, you can have a look at the book just to be familiar with the best places to wander around.

This book is all about the impressions, emotions and implications that no picture can convey, but something that can only be experienced when you bask in the glorious Mediterranean sun in Alexandria, are belittled by the sentinel pyramids at Giza, come to terms with the engineering feat of relocating Abu Simbel, appreciate the historic grandeur of the museum-city of Luxor, or relive the romance of the Nile as you drift past gently-swaying date palms and white-sailed feluccas.

Buy from Amazon or Kindle here. Not a bad way to quickly scan through the thoughts of a traveller to this part of the world.

Quote / Unquote


“You're different. You're more perfect. Time is three things for most people, but for you, for us, just one. A singularity. One moment. This moment. Like you're the center of the clock, the axis on which the hands turn. Time moves about you but never moves you. It has lost its ability to affect you. What is it they say? That time is theft? But not for you. Close your eyes and you can start all over again. Conjure up that necessary emotion, fresh as roses.” ― Jonathan Nolan, Memento mori
