Spiritual trip to roof of Egypt (Mount Catherine, SINAI)
Hey. Guys this is fellow adventurer welcome back. So. Today we, have a big mission we are here in the hub on. The coast of the Red Sea okay this is my friend Khalid. Famous. Egyptian traveler Alexandrian. Exactly. Is. From Alex yes I am H tire man. Just. Gonna go out of the town and we gonna hitchhike to, st.. Catrin and then we gonna climb the, highest mountain. In Egypt, which, is Mount Catrin it's about a hundred, meter over the, highest here, we are now in the hub is around 20 degrees there. On the top is gonna be at night probably about, below. Zero minus three we'll see how we handled that so it's gonna be quite a challenge, to get there and, this. So. Basically we gonna go from the zero which is the sea level. To. The highest mountain, of the update, ship so I think is quite great, mission to do and you. Guys keep, fingers crossed for us. Phyllis, host boy. We got a car again. Maids. We, got stuck in the police checkpoint, in the heart into car slide. We, have to show the busbar they search our fangs. Check ones here in a gym it's like another polar you know like it's like water. Water so many motors inside the country no so. Yeah it's working like, Forex we are not moving. We. Contributing. To petrol to this guy who give us leave now, heading. To next checkpoint and, from there hopefully we'll get a car straight to Catrin. Getting. Them on. Got, it we. Got this. Car it's. Like a bus I think. And we've, a little bit of money but. Hey. Guys we got his car I cannot, imagine the better way to arrive. To to. Catch him but with this crazy truck super old. Yeah. We are here we did it I'm so happy I'm. So happy to, be back in Reno in Katrina as. I lived here before and. This, feel even more. Is conservative. You know. Okay. Can you tell us what was the right. Guys. We. Are inside Catrin, it's. Much colder here. So. From zero zero, elevation to help now we are I think about. 1,500. And. Now. We have to continue, to the top to the so-called. Roof of Egypt right. Catherine, mountain. I. Cannot. Put into words how how, much happier I am to be back here in San Katrina I actually used. To live here I spent, here like three months in house living here and. It. Was a very, beautiful. Time so now all the memories coming back you know and. I. Experienced, many beautiful things here and the people here are so, nice you know it's this, place is still quite isolated, you know and not many people get down here I can feel like the hub is great and, it's. Beautiful, there there, is a Red Sea and all this but, this one has something, something. There you know there is something I cannot, describe. It's just here and it's so beautiful, and these people are so nice you know and they are not so much exposed to tourism so they are still like very normal and they, are between people and there are very nice people 3 2 1 check it out guys oh. My. God it's, beautiful, this.
Is The center of st. Katrina little. Little center you have all the shops you have a petrol. Station behind. There there is a there's. A bank there's a beautiful mosque and it's so different because last time I was here I was here in summer in. Summer it gets around 30, degrees and. Now. It's about maybe, five zero you see I have a I have my head from Iceland you know it's quite, cold I have, shoes you. See, I change for sandals we actually chose the, mud Katrine not, only because if it's the highest in a, in. Here but, actually it's not so famous like. Moses. Mountain you know the, gable. Musa or sunny mountain the, biblical mountain whoo, Moses. Has received. The. Ten Commandments from, the, gut, which. Applies for all Abrahamic. Religion, which. Is Islam, Judaism, Christianity. And, Baha'i, isn't this one is actually more touristic and it's more it. Can get more busy more crowded but. We could not go to this one there. Is an amazing. Open. House you know up to on the top where we can actually very gonna sleep, advice. We would be freezing to death I suppose so. We cannot be there you. Cannot spend a night maybe two we'll see how it goes by the way I'm. Making this vlog with. My new iphone, I got - seven I was following someone was resisting, two iPhones, but. I actually got this one not because it's iPhone well. It because the telephone is because it has a nice camera you know it has very nice camera so I want you to guys let me know if you like the picture if you if the sound is good for YouTube if, you can hear it well I hope this is the only disadvantage of this device. Is that I, cannot. Plug, external, microphone but I think as long as it is not windy, it should be fine and you. Should enjoy, the sound you know back home as a tripod I used to have the big big, camera big DSLR camera and I used to have a big tripod for it and for, this one I have just this one. You. Know so this is my this, is my shooting, gear now you know this guy and the. Camera and the iPhone, that's it you know hopefully it's gonna work for you guys it, works for me my lives it's easy it's, just in my pocket always and I, can shoot anything, anywhere. That's, it so we already got to welcome drink the, special recipe from the local doctor. So. This is hibiscus, sage, wild, mint and. Rosemary. It. Tastes so nice oh my god oh. My.

Are are we are here on around, so which is actually great thanks God that. We have this place just for, ourselves now, and we can use it for photo for. The main reason why we came here so, I think we are very, close. We. Are much closer together I suppose 10 years like buying by. Being in such a elevation. Here and, like. I said everything, here, feels pure, like we're not super to clean, our bodies but but. Otherwise. There is no shower I know but there's there other things like the purity of the place itself it's like a program each place and it was lucky to look at me yesterday kind of ready. Anyway.
