  1. Egypt is on our bucket list, Saba. My brother in law and his wife recently visited Egypt as a part of a group tour. I’m someone who prefers to travel solo with my family alone. Egypt, unfortunately, is said to be not safe enough to travel solo. I’m waiting for that day. Love the international flavor to your series. The kebabs looks yum!
