Plato described Atlantis as being an island bigger than Libya and Asia combined. The 2nd slide is the map of the world according to the Greeks around the time (shortly after) of Plato made by Eratosthenes, who was from Libya. The Greeks had colonies around the mediterranean and we're a seafaring people, thus they had mapped out the mediterranean and knew some things about the extent of Africa and Asia. They called Africa, Libya, and called Asia, Asia.

There have been 2 popular videos on YouTube lately about Atlantis, one that it is the Richat Structure in North Africa, or that it is the mythical island of Frisland off the northwest coast of Ireland. Neither of these places is Atlantis because neither place could possibly be large enough to fit an island that would essentially be a continent (larger than Libya and Asia combined) in their respective areas.

Plato also likened Atlantis as being situated in front of the strait of Heracles (the pillars of hercules), and being the way to more islands which were themselves the way to the opposite continent that was described as the boundless continent which surrounded the real sea. In Timaeus, it states that the Mediterranean (the sea inside the strait) is like a Harbor in comparison to the Atlantic Ocean, or the sea that surrounded Atlantis.

Aside from that, in Critias, the twin brother of Atlas, the first king of Atlantis, was named gadeirus, after Gades, the country which his part of the island faced towards. Gades was a Phoenician colony in South western Spain located on the outside of the Pillars of Hercules. That means that Atlantis was indeed located in front of the Pillars of Hercules, in the Atlantic ocean. 
It is not the Richat structure and it is not Frisland.

I will post more on this at a later date.

Luxor, Egypt - The Valley of the Kings is a hidden treasure of tombs in the middle of nowhere in this beautiful landscape. Exploring a few of them made me feel like a real treasure hunter - much of the original paint and hieroglyphs line the passageways of the tombs. Standing in the middle of the Valley with almost no other tourists present makes you realize why the pharaohs chose this location - it would have seemed 100% safe from tomb raiders...unfortunately, that was an underestimation of the greed of people and need for stuff. Have a great week, everyone!

🗝Ebu Simbel Tapınağı
.
.
🗝Mısır’da, Nil Irmağı’ nın batı kıyısında, Kahire’nin 1.227 km uzağında Asvan’da Firavun II. Ramses’ in (İÖ 1290-1224) İÖ 1250 dolaylarında yaptırdığı üç tapınaktır.
🗝Güney Mısır’da bulunan ve eski Mısır firavunu II. Ramses  tarafından yaptırılan en önemli antik tapınaklardan biridir.
II.Ramses bu tapınakları düşmanlarına gücünü göstermek ve bunun yanında en çok sevdiği karısı Nefertari’ye aşkını göstermek amaçlı yaptırmıştır. .
🗝Kayaların içi oyularak yapılmış ve tam 20 yılda tamamlanabilmiştir.
En ilginç özelliklerinden biri de içerisinde bulunan tapınma taşına senede bir gün, Ramses’in doğum gününde (21 Haziran) gün ışığı doğrudan gelecek şekilde tasarlanmıştır.
🗝Tapınakta dinsel betimlerin yanı sıra Kadeş Savaşı‘nı işleyen sahneler de vardır.

Be prepared for a general disruption rather than a specific disaster affecting your day. Delays  may slow you down, do not loose your focus. Be patient. It will all pass as they say.

El temple d'Edfu, dedicat al déu Horus, malgrat tenir més de 2000 anys d'antiguitat té, per la seva arquitectura, un misteriós aire futurista.

Marcus Aurelius, Pensieri, XI.13. Qualcuno  mi  disprezzerà?  Se  la  vedrà  lui.  Quanto  a  me, vedrò  di non farmi cogliere  a fare o dire nulla  che meriti disprezzo. Mi  odierà?  Se  la  vedrà  lui;  io,  invece,  resterò  benevolo  e  ben disposto  verso  chiunque,  e  a  lui  in  particolare  mostrerò prontamente  la  sua  mancanza,  senza  atteggiamento  di  biasimo,  e neppure  per  ostentare  la  mia  tolleranza,  ma  con  genuina  bontà, come  il  famoso  Focione (posto  che  non  fingesse). Tale  deve essere,  infatti,  la  nostra  intima  disposizione,  e  gli  dèi  devono guardare  un  uomo  che  non  reagisce  con  sdegno  o  insofferenza davanti  a  nulla.  Che  male te ne  può venire,  infatti, se  ora  fai  quello che  è  proprio  della  tua  natura  e  accetti  quanto  ora  è  opportuno alla  natura  universale,  da  uomo  proteso  a  realizzare  per  ogni  via possibile  ciò  che  è  utile  alla  comunità?

#philaetemple got a second chance after the dam was built. It stood under water for a long time, until they decided to move it to another island. And it was definitely worth it!

Here I attempted to capture the full interior of the Pyramid of Djedefre at the site of Abu Rawash. For those who have ever stood at the edge looking within, you know how loose the rubble is and how dangerous it is to get this shot. Right where the shaft opens up into the main corridor there is an area that appears to have been introduced to extremely high heat, exceeding 3,000 degrees fahrenheit. For what purpose? The world may never know? How was that temperature achieved in ancient times? And what purpose did this structure serve? All questions that remain unanswered within a site that is all but lost to the test of time, forgotten by the modern man. #MikeBrownMediaGroup #MBM #Egypt #Egyptology #AncientEgypt #AbuRawash #Djedefre #Khufu #Granite #Quartz #StoneMasonry #Photography #Photographer #Videography #Travel #TravelBlog #History #Historian #Explorer #WorldTraveler #Wanderlust #Astronomy #Astrology #Anthropology #Archaeology #Architecture #PicOfTheDay #Canon #GoPro

Was really lucky to see the Temple of Luxor at night - all lit up and surrounded by happy locals enjoying their Saturday evening.
.
.
However, the real treat came the next day, when we were able to take a hot air balloon ride over the city, which revealed the Temple's unique design - that of a human being, with the sanctuary as the head.

Finally got to do my #1 bucketlist activity (riding in a hot air balloon) in the country that has had the top spot on my bucketlist since I was a kid (Egypt!!). It can’t get any better than this 💕
.
.

Egypt’s sandstorm and winds were testing my perseverance  and determination during our travels in this beautiful country - sometimes luck was on our side and sometimes we just had to gamble a bit and take our chances to get through a sandstorm, for example. Either way, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.  Especially when the only place left to go is UP 🎈🌞

The Great Sphinx of Giza - a true one of a kind and something so glorious that when you see it in person with the pyramids in the background, you just can’t help but grin! .
.
Curious to know WHY this was built? It was carved out of one large stone/rock simply because the king thought the rock was ugly and he just couldn’t have something so ugly be right at the pathway to the great pyramid... not a bad solution if you ask me 🙌🏼

While seeing all the history, monuments, and artwork of Egypt has been amazing, I have to say that I'm equally impressed by the people here.
.
.
Kind, warm, energetic, and helpful - we have been given the 5 Star treatment by our tour company, guides, and complete strangers, and every day's experience is better than the last.
.
.
I'm so thankful to be here, and so happy that I have the opportunity to tell other people from my country to come as well.

I have never met so many friendly, helpful, and happy people as I have here in the Middle East. It truly puts things in perspective for me and in one way or another it has made me want to push the boundaries of my travels instead of believing and relying on one source (cough, the media, cough) when learning about foreign places... I URGE you to do the same!  Let the world surprise you 🙌🏼

If you ever want to feel small, or really get an idea of just how ingenious the Ancient Egyptians  were, you have to visit the massive Temple at Karnak.
.
.
From towering columns to giant obelisks to heiroglyphic images that stand 30 feet tall - this place is literally astounding. .
.
The photo here is from the hypostyle hall, which has over 134 columns still standing some nearly 80 feet high. .
.
What places have most impressed you in your travels?

The Temple at Karnak is usually the "grand finale" of a good North and South Tour of Egypt - and with good reason.
.
.
This is one of the largest ancient Temple complexes in the world, and you need a few hours to really do it right. .
.
I have literally a hundred photos of me here (many of which include the famous hypostyle hall, with its 134 columns), but I just really liked the symmetry on this one. .

The way the light shines through the Ancient Egyptian temples is captivating ✨

When I saw this particular beam of light shining through the doorway, I just had to capture this moment forever. It was quiet, peaceful, bright... perfect. .

Sorry, I don’t mean to yell at you - it’s just SO FREAKING COOL... and much larger than I ever expected, look at those paws 🐾 👀
.
.
It’s the largest and first of its kind.  The lions body represents power and strength while the cobra on the forehead represents protection for the king. 👑
.
.
Best of all, it’s included with your ticket to see the pyramids!  Speaking of pyramids, check out the background! .

One way to get to know Egyptian culture is through their most popular drink!  Asab is Arabic for= Sugar Cane Juice! A light, refreshing, local Egyptian beverage that’s sold at little stands across the country. .
.
.
It tastes similar, in a way, to coconut juice and isn’t overly sugary. To be honest, I didn’t love it at first - it had to grow on me with each sip 😂

Abu Simbel was the number two place to visit in Egypt for us (after the Pyramids, of course), and we came very close to not making it thanks to a pesky sand storm (very cool that we got to experience one, though)!
.
.
I'm so glad we made it after all, because we got some photo time in front of the two temples before the other tourists showed up, which is always a plus.
.
.
The artistry is amazing even after all these years, and the temples are just the right amount of damaged to give them that ultra ancient feel. .
.
Here you see the smaller of the two temples, dedicated to the wife of Ramesses II, Nefertarie.

We almost didn't make it to the famous Temple of Abu Simbel. The day before, southern Egypt got hit by a massive sand storm and the Government closed the roads south (Abu Simbel is right on the Sudan border).
.
.
I'd never seen anything like this storm, though. There was so much dust in the air, you could barely see the sun, and it would sting your lungs when you spent more than a few minutes outside. .
. 
The storm was supposed to last 3 days, but our AWESOME tour company (@ladyegypttours) switched our whole itinerary to see if it cleared. It did so the next day. We left Aswan at 3 am and got to Abu Simbel early enough to take photos like this, completely uninhibited by tourists.

Wandering through an Egyptian wonderland ✨
.

We visited so many temples during our time in Egypt that I lost count! It was an absolute adventure just to see what was around every corner and behind every column. .

Where is your favorite wonderland? I think I’ve found mine!

Egyptian Falafel 🥙 made out of green beans, flash fried to crisp perfection, sprinkled with sesame seeds, & last but not least a pita stuffed with Egyptian salad & a creamy super light, mild cheese. 🤤 .
.

This falafel is insanely good, simple, and healthy.  It’s also so different from others that I’ve had. .

You can get this Egyptian style delicacy from restaurants, local vendors, and small food stands 🙌🏼 .

Some of the modern day guardians of ancient Egypt 🇪🇬✨💪🏼
.
.
They purposefully might walk into your photos (they think tourists like this or sometimes they just want their face to be immortalized in your pictures)... or you might purposefully walk through their day. .
.
Either way, be warm and kind, smile, and use them if their willing - locals photobombing is the best! 🙌🏼

The first Temple we saw in southern Egypt was Philae, which - aside from being very well preserved - sits on a small island in the center of a beautiful lake.
.
.
This Temple (along with Edfu, Abu Simbel, and Kom Ombo) is the reason why you MUST get to Aswan in Southern Egypt. It's a completely different culture and feel from Cairo, and archeologists are literally still digging up new Temples and Tombs every day. .
.
Now get your butts out there and start exploring. 🚀

It’s one thing to walk or drive to an Ancient Egyptian temple but to be taken on a river boat down the Nile, turn a corner, and see it powerfully atop this island is a whole different experience. .
.
This temple, the Temple of Philae was an ancient pilgrimage center for the cult of Isis (a very popular ancient Egyptian god). This sacred site was venerated from the Pharaonic era up to the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods with each ruler adding their own stamp onto the stones here (literally). .
.
It was also one of many ancient Egyptian sites that were saved from a watery grave by UNESCO's rescue project, which transferred the monuments block by block from the river Nile to its new home atop Angelina Island.  Can you imagine? .

ANCIENT EGYPTIAN TEMPLE TAKEOVER!!! 😍 
Komombo Temple, one of my favorite spots in Egypt... it could be because: 1. it was absolutely empty, so I danced and frolicked my way through it, 2. we got to see GIANT mummified Nile crocodiles at the small museum next door, 3. It was the first time we had seen a large number of beautiful ancient columns modeled after the papyrus plant, or 4. We had just finished a relaxing overnight felucca (Egyptian sailboat) ride down the Nile and were in complete bliss 😌
.
.
.
It’s probably all of the above 🙌🏼

Being happy is a very personal thing and it really has NOTHING to do with anyone or anything else✨
.
.
.
The biggest journey for myself in life so far has been to *make my own happiness* and follow it - my mind is constantly at war with the world and with my heart, and well if you know me, it’s at war with itself way too often as well 😂
.
.
I’m not going to tell you how to find happiness. I can’t tell you.  I still haven’t figured it out - I doubt it’s an end point, it’s probably one of those “journey” type things that I have yet to fully mentally grasp (I’m more of a realist with a pinch of fantasy thrown on top) so we’ll see how that goes..
.
.
I will say, traveling around the world is the first HUGE thing I’ve done that’s really opened a (because there are many) mysterious, unmarked door 🚪for me in my life.  All the other doors like college, first job, an internship we’re all (relatively) very paved paths based on logical next steps... but now, I have truly no idea what’s next: what’s after this trip, or what’s in store for tomorrow 🌞
.
.
.
P.S. I don’t think I’ve ever been this happy at 5 am (😴) as I was in this hot air balloon above Valley of the Kings in Egypt 😂😂😂

Before we get to the temple takeover: here’s a shot of my first ever hot air balloon ride!! A major tick off my forever growing bucket list! 🎈🙌🏼
.
.
Who would of thought it would be in Egypt - flying across the River Nile & over The Valley of the Kings 👑
.
.
The balloons were absolutely huge and very impressive.  I was in awe the moment we got there: 4:30 am, pitch black, and all you see is huge tarps surrounding you with fire bursting out of baskets every few seconds as the colorful tarps raised higher and higher. .
.
Truth be told, the wind was so strong that morning, they almost cancelled our flight.  Our luck turned around at the last second and they hurried us to board. Before I knew it - we were up! ✨

Before I knew it - we were up! ✨ . . . #travelblogger  #travelphotography  #traveltartare  #instagood  #travelingaroundtheworld  #explore  #adventure  #wanderlust  #traveler  #traveling  #egypt  #luxor  #temple  #valleyofthekings  #ancientegypt  #egyptian  #africa  #africatrip  #visitegypt  #ladyegypt  #egyptology  #gopro  #spivostick  #spivo  #hotairballoon  #hotairballoons  @gopro @spivo #gopro 
I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious✨

Behind the scenes funny story:  we had just gotten off an Egyptian sailboat (felucca) and because it was so windy after the sandstorm, I had thrown on a simple pair of black cotton shorts and just decided to leave them on - well, turns out it helps to make one hell of a picture when the light shines through your dress and contrasts with the shorts you’re wearing 🤣

P.S. get ready for an Egyptian temple takeover coming through your feed (the best kind of takeover!) .

The non personal obstacles: 1 sandstorm (that we thought would last 3 days and only lasted 1), a government shut down of sailing & the road to this temple, 2 3-AM wake up calls over 2 days, & a 6 hour round-trip drive into the desert (not to mention countless texts and calls back and forth to our amazing tour operator, Sarah of @ladyegypttours trying to sort out how to rearrange our timeline so that we can stay out and *maybe, just maybe* have one more chance) ...and we finally made it: Abu Simbel .

Abu Simbel, Egypt ✨
.

 It took quite a bit of determination and luck to get here (figuratively & literally) - but let me start from the beginning:
.
.
Travel isn’t easy.  These past (almost) 4 months have been challenging mentally, physically, and emotionally for me personally and us a couple.  I know how it looks in our stories and photos on @traveltartare - it looks effortless and magical (maybe? Idk) but between each photo there are different obstacles - big and small - and some that seem absolutely impossible to overcome at the time.
.
.
Don’t miss-understand, I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else right now and I wouldn’t have it any other way, just know that no matter what you choose to do in life, if you are overcoming your fears, reaching new heights for yourself, or pretending to be Indiana Jones every now and then, you’re doing something right. .
.
No matter how much I wish that life was a little bit easier at times, I know in the end it would then fail at giving me this feeling that I have right now... like I just did something abso-freaking-lutely incredible against all odds thrown my way.

It's already over 12 years since I went to Egypt. The Ancient Egypt with its sophisticated culture fascinated me right from the very first minute. The Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx are spectacular, as well as the Egyptian Museum and the immense oriental bazaar of Kairo. I really hope to visit this magical place again someday.🇪🇬
