A Photo Essay from Egypt
NAHA-EBERS Aromatherapy Study Tour 2021

Egypt was like nothing I have ever experienced before. The landscapes, the people, the atmosphere, the food, the shopping… It was an incredible opportunity and an experience of a lifetime. If you had told me a year ago that I would be standing in front of the Great Pyramids of Giza, I would have thought you were insane. But yes, I did that!


Egypt was very eye opening. As a small-town girl, who has always lived in Idaho and has only traveled a handful of places, Egypt was definitely not a place that I had ever considered traveling to, let alone go by myself with a group of people I had never met. However, within the first day of travel and meeting my group, it had felt like I had known them all previously. Our group of attendees for the tour were awesome! Everyone was so nice, and I enjoyed having the chance to learn more about them, and where they were from.


So, with that being said, here are a few of my favorite photographs that I captured during my time in Egypt. 


Meet our group! 16 attendees, all from different places, were able to experience Egypt together. This photo was taken in a beautiful jasmine field in a village in Tanta, Egypt.


The first day of adventure in Egypt was touring the Great Pyramids of Giza. The Pyramids were breathtaking. The architecture was amazing to see, and it was a really wonderful experience. Let me just say though, the heat is something else. Being out in the desert in October in 90+ degree weather, walking around on sand, is way too hot!

One of my favorite photos I captured. I like to call this one, “The 3 amigos!”


I have always had a love for horses and animals. It was interesting to learn that in Egypt, horses are still used to pull carriages as a form of transportation. They still use donkeys as well.

The Great Pyramids of Giza, located in Greater Cairo, Egypt.

Made primarily of limestone.

The three pyramids are: Great Pyramid of Giza (which is the oldest and largest)

Pyramid of Khafre - The second tallest and largest.

Pyramid of Menkaure - The smallest of the three pyramids.



Beautiful architecture in Cairo, Egypt.
