It has been the first year for this blog, but hopefully I will be able to keep it going for a while longer. It has been my first attempt at blogging, and there has been a lot to learn, and a lot of mistakes made. I am still trying to learn as much as I can, but as long as my daily average hits is in the area of 12-18 readers pr day I guess it will be a while longer before I can resign from my current job and become a full time traveler and blogger ;D
On the 3rd of November Egypt had to devalue the Egyptian Pound by 48% to meet IMF demands for a 13 billion dollar loan.
As you can see from the graph above, the value of one Egyptian Pound fell from 0.41463 dirhams to 0.23602 in a moment. The good news for this is that fares out of Cairo (and other Egyptian cities) are priced in Egyptian Pounds, and airlines have so far not adjusted their fares. This means there are some incredible fares to be found.
It is quite common to see great fares from Colombo to various destinations with Etihad, Qatar Airways and Emirates, but this is better than most I have seen lately.
