    Thanks for everyone that was able to make it. I loved being able to share my adventures with you all. There were some questions about how I went about booking the trip and such. We booked it all ourselves and didn't go through a tour company. Some of the sites we used are as follows.

    For the tour
    http://www.neweuropetours.eu/
    I highly recommend these trips. I went on a lot of these in Europe and thought they were some of the best tours I've been on.

    For hotels and hostels
    http://www.tripadvisor.com/
    www.agoda.com
    www.hostelworld.com

    For flights-we flew budget airlines mostly as we didn't have checked baggage and these sites worked great.

    www.skyscanner.net

    There was a question about safety for females in Egypt. I sent an e-mail to both my American friend and Egyptian friend. If you are interested in making a trip there let me know and I can see about setting you up with some contacts there. Feel free to ask any other questions, send me an e-mail.

    Can't make it after all. Sorry to miss this, sounds really interesting, I've always dreamed of going to Egypt. Maybe we can have one again another month?

    Alexandra, I haven't completely finished outlining my presentation. However, once I get it taken care of I will update you on what will all be in it as far as violence and other such topics.

    Will subject matter be appropriate for a young middle schooler to hear also? (Will there be anything about violence, unfortunate incidents, etc.?)
