What inspired you to write your book?
I would like to give my advice for those who is in need.
Here is a short sample from the book:
I encourage all who are able to travel and see new places. Being in a new environment can expand our perspectives and allow us to see beauty we might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience. One adventure that left an impression on my life was a trip I took to Egypt with my husband. I have been to many places; however, this trip left the deepest impression on my heart. Whenever I recall this trip, I am still overwhelmed by unexplainable emotions. So, I would like to share this experience with you.
We left Milan on an overnight flight and arrived the next morning at the Marsalam airport in Egypt. After being cleared by immigration, we left the airport gate and waited for a car to come and pick us up to the hotel. When in Italy, the weather was still cold in March. Egypt, on the other hand, was warm and sunny. It is said that March is the best month to visit Egypt, as it is not too hot. Marsalam is an Egyptian sea by an airport. Before visiting, I thought it was a coastal city like Nha Trang or Vung Tau in Vietnam. To my surprise, there was high-class hotels for tourists there. Strangely, there were no other houses or villages around. Located along the coast are a wide spread of hotels, and on the shore are miles and miles of deserts; arid with no trees or houses to be seen. The tourists that I saw at the airport are mostly from the west. Outside the station, we waited for the bus to take us to the hotel. There are many different tour operators, so tourists wait in separate groups.
After much time, our bus finally arrived. The buses take people to different hotels, and we were the last to board the shuttle. Upon arrival, I saw the hotel was quite spacious. After appreciating the architecture, we checked into our room without issue. Then, we had a snack. The food provided included salads, crepes, tea, coffee and soft drinks.
We stayed overnight in Marsalam, leaving the hotel early around 3am. There was a 9-seater bus waiting to pick us up out front. The driver didn’t know any English, only speaking in Arabic. We only heard him attempt to say one thing in English that we could understand. He asked for money while holding out his empty hand. He was asking to be paid for the ride. Once understanding, we immediately said, “We paid for the car through the travel agency, please call the company.” He called the company and gave my husband the phone to talk to a representative.
