All rich moments in life become richer when shared with a good friend, a companion…
The journey to Egypt was a unique adventure in so many ways and most of the uniqueness came from the great feeling of sharing and fraternity with friends of like minds searching together. The stories of that trip are divided between the memories of 25 or more friends, and the story would best be told if they were to be quilted together. This is why in my heart of hearts I know that my story is incomplete, and that to add to it the accounts of my companions, it would crystalize into a multifaceted gem. We humans thrive on companionship, on relations with other humans who walk similar paths and on the exchanges we can have with people that we feel kinship with.
I do miss Egypt so much but I miss the friends who were with me on that trip even more. This post is dedicated to them, my companions in Egypt.

What makes a trip is the people that we meet. 🙂
I would love to read that book of you and your friends’ trip. What a beautiful story that could tell. On the other hand, I love reading about your experiences and they tell a good story all by itself.
A beautiful tribute to friendship and it really caught my attention when you said your story is incomplete. I’m curious what the future plan is. To look for completion?
Have a great weekend!
I love your banner shot of the reeds with the butterflies – very beautiful xx
The people of today helped bring to life the experiences of the people of the past.
