Oui - Paris

Did you know that Paris is only 3:30 minutes from London via the Eurostar and costs only about $100.00 US for a return trip? I didn't - but once we figured it out we added a day trip to Paris to our Journey!!!!

Health information for Egypt

David found the following information regarding the shots we should get before leaving for Egypt:

See your doctor at least 4 to 6 weeks before your trip to allow time for shots to take effect.

Hepatitis A or immune globulin (IG).
Hepatitis B if you might be exposed to blood (for example, health-care workers), have sexual contact with the local population, stay longer than 6 months in the region, or be exposed through medical treatment.
Rabies, if you might be exposed to wild or domestic animals through your work or recreation.
Typhoid, particularly if you are visiting developing countries in this region.
As needed, booster doses for tetanus-diphtheria, measles, and a one-time dose of polio vaccine for adults. Hepatitis B vaccine is now recommended for all infants and for children ages 11–12 years who did not complete the series as infants.
