A sharp turn off the paved main road and our volunteer team finds itself plowing through muddy, unpaved tracks dozens of miles from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Bustling city activity and buildings are quickly replaced with seas of lush, green rice fields. Worn-out street bicycles replace motorbikes.

A few years ago, I spent a memorable time biking through the Red Sea mountains in Egypt. We were one of the first group of travelers to ever traverse long stretches of the Eastern Desert and as I was finally editing my photos from the trip, I came across a personal favourite set. I had the opportunity to share breakfast which included gaburi bread, gibna gemeli (camel cheese) and gabana coffee prepared with nothing more than an open fire, water, and twigs with local Bedouin nomads. #Egypt #Africa #Travel
