Top 5 Cairo

Believe it or not, creating the Top 5 Cairo was harder than I thought.  I wasn’t a huge fan of Cairo, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think everyone should go at least once in their life to see the Pyramids!  Between getting sick (whatever you do, don’t drink the water) and staying in the city too long, it was not my favorite place to visit.  There is not a whole lot to do in the actual city of Cairo.  My Top 5 Cairo list is a must see (and do), but I recommend only going to Cairo for 3 days tops….

Top 10 Istanbul was hard to narrow down because Istanbul is like no other city in the world!  The city is geographically unique because it straddles two continents: Europe and Asia.  On top of that, the city is filled with so many historical sites, restaurants, and shopping.  You could spend days there and never be left with a dull moment.

Check out my top 10 and see what you think…

Top 10 Budapest

Budapest will always hold a special place in my heart. Two months after meeting my Partner In Crime, we decided to book a two week trip to Europe 6 months in advance. We even agreed to still go on the trip if we broke up (it would be a slightly awkward plane ride but who would care….I was going to Europe!!).   Luckily for us (and everyone else on the plane) it all worked out and Budapest, Hungary was our fist stop.  Here is my Top 10 based on my experiences there…
