JOURNEY to ABU SIMBEL – Bus Drivers Fight & Ancient Egyptian Ruins

Egypt is full of world wonders, and Abu Simbel was no exception! Our journey to these ancient Egyptian ruins was crazy though. After waking up in Aswan at 3am, we had to get to the other side of the Nile River to meet our bus at 4am. This didn’t go as planned, but after we finally got in our bus, our bus driver started a full-on brawl with dozens of other bus drivers. This bus drivers fight was unbelievable! We then got to Abu Simbel and took the afternoon exploring the beautiful things to do in Egypt! // Travel Vlog 96 // Abu Simbel, Egypt

Hi! We’re Hannah and Chad! We met at college and got married in August of 2016. As poor newlyweds and recent college grads, we moved to New York City to begin our careers in finance. Only one year later, after accumulating over 2 million miles and points through “travel hacking”, we booked round-the-world business class tickets to over 40 countries for free. We quit our jobs, sold everything we owned, and began this once-in-a-lifetime adventure on August 27, 2018.

    *sigh…Egyptian here…one time I was going to school at the time I was still living in Cairo(I live in America now) and my school bus driver and a semi truck? I don't really remember but we almost got in a car accident and my SCHOOL bus driver legit pulled a pocket knife out on the semi-truck driver(he got fired, cuz my school was a private school and some rich kids…cough…not that I am not one of those… cough…told the principal about it). Yeah, Egypt is a wild country. Stay safe guys.
