giulia travel reportageI’ll begin as usual by rounding up my favorite comments from this past April before opening up the discussion on traveling in Egypt with Giulia, who writes Travel Reportage. Here’s a short introduction in Giulia’s own words.

  • Giulia is a solo female traveler from Italy traveling indefinitely around the world. She pays for her travels with occasional jobs and photography.

I was fortunate to meet Giulia last May in Cairo, toward the end of her 9 month stay in the country. You may have apprehensions about traveling to Egypt, be curious what it’s like for female travelers, or want to know how many shishas it’s possible to smoke in one day (believe me, I’ve got your answer!) So drop down into the comments and ask away. We all love to talk travel here so feel free to take the conversation on any path you choose. Giulia will be joining live from Genova, Italy and I’ll be in Istanbul, Turkey – we look forward to hearing from you!
