Yalla Yalla

I will leave for Luxor, Egypt on Wednesday and am really excited about the trip. I have not had a chance to plan my route as much as I would like but this is a part of the world I have always wanted to visit - the food, the history, the politics, the bustle and vitality. Should make for an interesting trip.
I showed my friends the luggage I am taking - my view is cluttered bag = cluttered mind!

Please feel free to share your tips on my very rough route.....!

Luxor - Cairo - Dahab - Petra - Wadi Rum - Jerusalem - Tel Aviv (Aggressive for 18 days but I am sure it will change en route)
