Things I Wish I Knew When Traveling to Egypt

Tip Number 2

Stay away from fresh fruits and raw vegetables for the first few days until your body adjusts, eat only cooked foods. The salads and buffet spreads at the hotels will be very tempting, avoid them or you will end up with an upset stomach and violent diarrhea. This advice was given to me by my travel agent who was a frequent visitor to the area. I did not listen, and ended up with soiled white clothes while running back to my hotel in a last attempt to save my dignity, epic fail!

A moment of salvation that restored my self esteem was meeting others from African countries that got sick as well. Many of them said they have traveled to many countries throughout Africa and never gotten sick. Keep a few imodium in your bag at all times, you never know when you might need them.
