Sure, it is safer and cheaper to stay home…probably. But God made the whole world and you’ve only seen a little bit of it. I’ll bet there are even places in your own local area that you’ve wondered about or have meant to see but haven’t quite gotten to yet. You are not a cog in a wheel – you have a soul, and dreams, and curiosity. Let these quotes inspire you to take a little time and get out there! Egypt, as a Middle Eastern country, has gone through a lot of public unrest in the past couple of years (since late 2010), due to the popular uprising against the government of Hosni Mubarak. The tourist industry has suffered a lot due to these uncertainties. There is currently a couple of bad reports coming out of Egypt, relating to tourists being impacted. The best rule would be, to do various searches on the Internet relating to violence and uprisings in Egypt. You can also go to the British or American Governmental websites where the necessary travel alerts are posted. Your tour company will also inform you, if extra care should be taken. The most important thing to remember is that tourism is the lifeblood of the Egyptian economy. A lot of care is taken to ensure that all tourists are being looked after. Hundreds of people visit Egypt every day, having a fantastic time.

Be aware, the ease of travel and the use of the internet has led to an explosion of wannabe travel writers. There are fewer magazines and publications who have full-time travel reporters as they buy from freelancers. Great news if you are a freelancer but this same glut of writers means you’ve got a lot of competition out there.
Glenn Stok: Yes, lots of people use them, and many do provide voice mail services, too, but with cell phones as they are, I can’t imagine why anybody would need the voice mail services as they come free with cell phone services. Good to see you again. I loved your article on religion. Great work, as usual.
The latter condition further strains the nursing profession by removing individuals from the health care industry and placing them into the already overly large patient population. This doubly strains the remaining medical staff. Fortunately, because travel nursing reduces stressors while significantly increasing benefits and enjoyment, some nurses that would otherwise quit or retire continue to work productively through traveling.
