Wood Roses & Interesting Rose Facts

July 5, 2015 · Posted in Egypt Travel · Comment 

Roses have occupied a prominent position in literature for centuries. Most memorably displayed in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Roses are used as expressions for what we often can’t say – that we love someone or care deeply for them. It’s not surprising that each color of a rose has a specific meaning. The red rose for example, means, love, courage, beauty, respect, and passion.

When you are contemplating sending roses to a friend and/or loved one think about purchasing wood roses as a wise alternative.These flowers are hand crafted one by one so no two are ever similar. Wooden roses are painted in a wide range of colors and unless you observe closely, sometimes you can’t determine whether or not they are the real thing. Scented mists that can be sprayed on wood roses can be a perfect substitute to the natural scent on the natural roses that may entice you.

The time honoured tradition of wood carving has always been a mode of expression in different cultures. Because roses are also given as ways to show ones feelings, it seems the most fitting that wood roses have become popular substitute to the real flower.

About fourteen hundred years BC wood carvings were frequently seen in Egypt. They were displayed in the form of royal images and the ceremonial furniture that resided in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Although the Greeks also used wood for their ancient sculptures, they rather preffered the use of bronze and stone. In contrast, wood carving was totally unknown in the cultures of Babylonia, Assyria, and ancient Persia. Wood carvings played a significant part in Europe; from the Romanesque to the baroque period, the hearts of Spanish sculptures were created from wood. And even when not used to construct pieces of art like sculpture, wood was widely used by many in the making of furniture, which is still true today.

A wood rose, like a meticulously crafted sculpture, is an exquisite piece of artwork. They are styled just like the genuine roses thus they can be bought with buds half opened or fully opened. Wood roses can also be carved into boutonnieres or used as centre pieces at special events like a wedding. Which ever way, everything is coming up roses when you make a selection.

Sophia Grace is a collector of wood roses. You can view a huge selection of quality wood roses and other plated rose gifts at Plated Gold Roses.

Advantages and disadvantages of traveling with travel agency and by your own

June 1, 2015 · Posted in Egypt Travel · Comment 

When you decide to go somewhere on vacations the first question you are faced with is how to organize your trip. At least, you need tickets and accommodation. However, if you are going abroad, the situation becomes more complicated. You will need visa, foreign passport and a little bit of information about a country you are coming to. The citizens, living and traveling inside European Union borders are in better position. They are free to visit any EU country without any additional document and visas. But lets imagine you have chosen a country where you need visa. Well, now its time to make some preparations for your trip. At first, whether you trust organizing your trip to a travel agency, or organize it by your own. If you choose the first variant: Advantages 1)Convenience. You dont have to besiege embassy and wait in long queues. You dont need to worry about buying tickets and booking hotels. 2)Price. Sometimes travel agencies have special agreements with hotels and the price becomes cheaper. The same thing can be said about avia and train tickets. 3)Comfort in the country of destination you are mostly provided with transfer to hotel and the representative of the agency can solve any of your problems. 4)Your vacation is organized. You have a choice of excursions; youll be shown the best shops and the most interesting attractions.

Disadvantages 1)Unfortunately, not all the agencies can be relied on, some of them disappear with the clients money. 2)Some people dont like to be limited – by excursions, by return tickets or by the necessity of staying in the hotel theyve chosen. 3)Its not always cheap often the excursions, offered by the agency representatives are more expensive than in other places in the city. If you choose the second variant, you should be prepared to some problems, but of course, this variant has its light sides too.

Advantages 1)You are free to choose there and when to go. You are free to change you hotel of your return ticket. 2)You are most likely to see the places, not shown to usual tourists. 3)Its a kind of challenge. Cant imagine your holyday without risk and adrenaline? So, this variant is for you! 4)You can seek and find a cheaper variant and not just accept what the agency offers.

Disadvantages 1)Once again risk. You are not quite safe when traveling alone in the foreign country. Nowadays you are not quite safe anywhere, but still 2)It causes some problems in the stage of organization getting a visa can be a trouble. Interview, invitation and a lot of documents all this can be inevitable. So, prepare to waste some time and nerves.

Anyway, the choice is yours.

Reasons Why a Trip to a Luxury Health Spa is Always a Good Idea

May 25, 2015 · Posted in Egypt Travel · Comment 

Our physical well being has to always be our first concern due to the fact that, obviously, if we are even remotely ill, our quality of life goes down the drain. Even if we catch a common cold, we must stay in bed, we don’t go out of the house unless it’s really necessary, and if we do, we feel bad and our sinuses hurt.

Happily we live in times when health really is important for everybody, including companies and even governments and parliaments. Now, the vice of smoking is is widely regarded as a bad vice, and media channels are forbidden to show cigarette commercials (not like before, when there were even Flintstones cigarette advertisements on TV), we are recommended to eat only healthy food, and, most significantly, we cleanliness is better than ever before in our history.

Because of this growing interest in keeping ourselves healthy, we now have many options that have risen during the last century, like those luxury health spa resorts. It is quite a trip to Nirvana going on vacation at a 5 star health spa resort, and nobody can contradict the fact that people feel like they have been born again after several days spent in such a place.

What can be more restful than a day at the spa during which you are spoiled a relaxing rub down performed by a professional, you sip a cocktail by the terrace and listen to some smooth, anti-stress music? After that kind of treatment, it’s no wonder you feel liberated from all the worries at work and the stressful situations you often bump into. The evening fitness course reinvigorates you and acts like a battery recharger, making you wonder why you didn’t try this before.

Of course, if you choose a health spa resort, you are offered a lot more: detox, diet programs, yoga, therapy and numerous and diverse weight loss programs and treatments for headaches, and even treatment for illnesses caused by chronic disorders.

Many people choose to go to a health spa resort even several times per year, because there are a ton of advantages they can draw from such reposeful and “rejuvenating” vacations. They come back home with newly found exuberance and sheer love for living. Who knows, maybe a 5 days holiday at a nice health spa resort is just the thing for you, if you are in need of a little boost, both physically and psychologically.

Facts About Sakkara Necropolis in Giza, Egypt

May 19, 2015 · Posted in Egypt Travel · Comment 

The site of Saqqara is the central portion of the Memphis necropolis which stretches for more than 30 kilometers. The moment your van will turn onto the road that led to Sakkara, you will feel as traveling back in time.

At Saqqara, the oldest complete stone building complex in history was built: Djoser’s step pyramid, which is not as impressive as the ones at Giza, but it is much older And partially covered to ongoing renovations. It was built for King Djoser of the 3rd Dynasty by the architect and genius Imhotep and high officials added private funeral monuments to this necropolis.

The Step pyramid is an archaeological remain in the Saqqara necropolis. The Step Pyramid was built for the 2nd king of Egypt’s 3rd Dynasty, Kind Djoser, and is considered to be the foundation on which all later pyramids were based upon. The pyramid was built by a genius architect of the time who based the theory of the pyramid on the more traditional ancient Egyptian funerary chamber the “mastaba”.

This first Egyptian pyramid consisted of six mastabas (of decreasing size) built atop one another in what were clearly revisions and developments of the original plan. The Step pyramid complex is comprised of a series of sections creating the complex, much like later pyramids.

It also contains offering rooms and most of the other features that were often found in both earlier and later tombs. The Mortuary Temple is just north of the pyramid and is in total ruin. On the southern wall back across the Great Court from the pyramid are carved cobra heads or uraei. The cobra head is an often seen as a symbol in Egypt. It was once a symbol of the north. The Southern Tomb is located just outside of the southern wall. Steps lead up the wall to the other tombs and monuments outside the walls.

Traveling to Saqqara is popular from Sinai and Red Sea resorts , you may go individual or booking any of the group tours from your hotel if you stay in Cairo, Luxor or Aswan or from the resort if you are staying near the Red Sea or the Sinai Peninsula.
