Some 5000 years ago a civilization was just awakening that would still leave us mesmerized by it’s beauty, it’s knowledge, it`s culture, it’s love of life and their preparation and belief in a better life to come in the “afterlife”. This civilization was, of course, that of Ancient Egypt.
On our journey we will be able to see how this great land evolved to become a strong and unified country under the leadership of their kings, known as pharaohs, who were believed to have to been descended from the “Gods”.
We will see who the rulers of this great land were and find out about some significant events throughout it’s history. We will learn about the religious beliefs of the people, the Gods and Goddesses that they worshiped and their burial practices.
We can visit some of the wonderful monuments that are still standing today, thousands of years after they were first built and learn about the design of these temples, tombs and funerary monuments.
At the end of our journey, hopefully you will have fallen under the magical spell that this ancient culture still casts over all who search for it.
Prepare to embark on your journey, all you need to travel is an open mind and a willingness to listen to the voices that still call to us telling their stories of this ancient land.
