Writ­ing this Egypt story was fun be­cause… “There’s so much hap­pen­ing in Egypt at any time, even when tourists are stay­ing away, so it has been fun to track down some of the new open­ings – places like Cairopoli­tan, the new Tahrir Cul­tural Cen­ter and the Luxor Art Gallery.”

Which des­ti­na­tion do you pre­dict as a hotspot for 2019? “Egypt, ob­vi­ously! Vis­i­tors have been cau­tious since the fall­out from the over­throw of Pres­i­dent Morsi in 2013, but this is a place we all want to ex­pe­ri­ence at least once, and with things stay­ing calm, 2019 should be a big year along the Nile and on the Red Sea.”
