Well been thinking for some time now and i do feel like the best solution for us is to book a flight to a hot cultured country and the best i came up with is Egypt, well i can contribute my language, Arabic is my first language so i think i would be able to negotiate good price on a hotel and transport, well we decided on an ex-anxiety camel sufferer at least he/she will be able to know who they dealing with.

any other suggestions are welcomed, meanwhile i found the pic of the cutest camel i have ever seen.

Destination: Egypt

When: in 2 hours if possible

Hotel: Leave it to me

Purpose of the flight: what else going mad in a country they know already we are mad

looking forward to meeting you all xxxxxxx

I speak fluent 'shout loudly in English'. I've always wanted to go to Egypt. Something about the pyramids and the mysticism of the whole place or is that just the romantic in me! See you at the checkout desk xx

Hi. rouri. I spent two years in Egypt and it is indeed a facinating country. Mind you, being in the British Army did not endear us to the natives, and looking back I am not surprised. My wife had parents posted out there and went to a school near Aboukia Bay for two years. Boy, I would like some of that lovely all the Summer round sunshine.. Book us in. (First class of course). Regards. j.

Language no problem, I am fluent in many languages......

when in East Germany, just after the wall came down (my garden wall)...my friends had problems ordering in a out of the way restaurant.....

I placed my fingers on my head, said moo, and indicated 2

I then folded my arms said cluck;cluck and moved them up and down and indicated 1

We then proceeded to enjoy 2 x steaks and 1 x chicken.............

International languages no problem..lol

grrr I've just tapped out a reply and it wiped itself! it went something along the lines of... reminds me of a time in Spain, Madrid I think, when the waiter in an attempt to explain something on the menu bounced, in all seriousness, around the place, hands under his chin and jutting his teeth out as much as possible. Was hysterical but as he was being quite serious we had to stifle our laughter. Kangaroo we thought! Turns out his impression was of a rabbit.

I'm beginning to see what I'm missing out on with this fear of travelling ... it sounds hilerious!!!!

Reply

we can go by train so you don't miss out. Murder on the Orient and the Nile all in one holiday!! Woohoo.

Oh yes, in retrospect that sounds so much better than crossing Europe with Rouri's camel, cute though it is!!! Hang on ... what did you say about Murder?!!!

Reply

That camel looks suspiciously like the dog rouri posted before Christmas! Sorry blame ellabella she brought Agatha Christie aboard, someone has to be murdered I'm afraid, 'tis the rules.

Reply

Oh dear ... err ... well ... ok - maybe I'll keep the camel close by for protection. I'm sure there'll be no problem getting it onto the train. Now you are sure it's a camel I'm getting not a large sheepdog?! It looked cute and cuddly but I'm worried it might not be a lot of protection!!!!

Camel. Sheepdog. They're all the same...

sorry to be a party pooper but i went to sharm el sheikh in 2005 and i must say i would never go again! I needed a holiday after it. I was absolutely exhausted both physically and mentally when i got back home. The locals spoilt it for me, they hassled me and my daughter everywhere we went, and even locked us in a shop until we bought something. We were so scared, it was a few weeks after the Ghazala gardens was blown up by terrorists and it was still fresh in our minds, also we heard terrorists were hiding in the mountains and were wanting to take western people hostage. So no, i dont want to go there ever again. The weather was too hot too lol

Crazy locals. Terrorists. Mountains. Heat. Abduction. This was a bad holiday how???? :)

Reply

I would go anywhere as long as its away from here. What a blast it would be. xx

Oh Rouri,

It sounds fantastic but there's a snag - I don't fly. not now, not ever .... Lizards keep their feet firmly on the ground :(

Oh, but the camel looks so cute - I've always had such a soft spot for camels AND you say this camel understands anxiety - it's fine with nervous travellers?!! Hmm ... perhaps if you sent the camel up North it could pick me up and we'll make our way sedately across Europe bound to arrive in North Africa ... err ... some time next year!!!!! :)

Reply

Not with the camels I met. The North Pole would be a more likely destination. J.

Reply

Oh No, that's not good - it's cold enough already!!!!!

Reply

WAIT WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS WEBSITE....WE ALL SUFFER FROM VARIOUS TYPES OF NERVOUS ILLNESS.........WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE HAVING A BLAST.....

HA HA HA......HAPPINESS ALWAYS LIES WITHIN ,SOMETIMES IT TAKES SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO MAKE US ALL REALISE.....WE CAN STILL SMILE

SO TAKE THIS BLOG AS A POWERFUL EXAMPLE THAT A SMILE HAS NEVER LEFT YOU

AND IF YOU ARE UNFORTUNATE TO BE IN A DARK PLACE AT THE MOMENT IT MAY NOT SEEM MUCH FUN.....BUT LET ME SAY TO YOU THERE WERE TIMES I FOUND THE SAME, BUT HERE I AM, JUST AS YOU WILL BE SOON.

CHIN UP....

MAY THERE BE MANY MORE IN 2013..................

Camel, plane, sheepdog, husky sleigh, yellow Rolls Royce (old film) - I up for it!!!! Lots of heat, great company, wonderful sites - yep, I'm coming - though I am NOT volunteering to be the murder victim, Ella! :( I've decided I ain't THAT depressed! I know, I'm probably the oldest, I'll be the Miss Marple character who solves the murder :-D Arabic? No problemo! I was in Israel-Palestine a few years ago, and had one little boy in absolute hysterics as he tried to teach this mad old Englishwoman how to say "Thank you" - "Shukra" if I remember correctly - I kept saying "Sugar" - must be my sweet tooth! ;)

Right, see you at the check out! Oh, i haven't got an up to date passport, so you'll have to sneak me on board in the luggage! ;)

Can't wait!!!

Salaam aleyikam (or words to that effect, Rouri!)

Cheers to everyone else!

Love

Rose

u remember well, hahahha so funny Sugar close enough

big hug my Rose xx

ohh my dear friends, it seems everyone is keen on travelling but then we have fear of fliying, i think if we take a plane altogether it wouldn't be a problem then and if Egypt you don't like we can always go to Greece and get lost in one of the islands!!

cheers fellow sufferers love you all

hugs and kisses

rouri xx

ps: my camel is ready to pick you up from anywhere, please login to camel.goingcrazy.com and will be happy to assit :)

Reply

Right, Rouri, I'll do that, thanks :) Or Sugar! ;)

Big hugs and kisses to you to, my lovely Rouri (and to the camel!)
