Scenes: (4) Capturing magnificence!


It’s been like forever since I last had a perfect mini-vacation. My last 4 days were beyond perfect! 😀
Spending a good time with my family whether indoors or hanging out, enjoying the terrific scenes of Cairo was exactly what I needed to get out of the ordinary routine of college. My sister & I have captured HUNDREDS of photos. I’ve been shuffling through the pics for hours before finally settling on these!

#Al-Masah Hotel & Spa:

Green areas are endless in there, it’s the right place for kids, for a barbecue and even for meditating-nature-lovers! 🙂

#Wandering with a “Nile Bus”:

I’m sorry they haven’t yet invented cameras to capture the soothing Autumn breeze!!

♩♬Spread your wings!♩♬



I’m not that into music. However, I’m so into positive and uplifting songs..
“Spread your wings”, sung by the Egyptian band “Cairokee“, is one of those songs, it’s been echoing inside my head for a while, so I thought of translating and sharing it. The lyrics are no longer rhyming after translation, but still, I find them very meaningful! The song was even used in Coca-Cola’s ads.
Special thanks to my friend “Khlood” for helping me pick some of the words. Here we go:

You’re all what you dream,
you’re your only hope..
And everything you’re looking for,
is inside you calling..
Let go of the past,
and write your own book..
Awaken your sleeping dreams,
shout and say what’s inside you..

Spread your wings,
and fly in the air..
Your ceiling is high,
up in the sky..

In the moment of your silence, think.
And inside yourself, search.
Draw, paint and photograph,
open your heart and lighten up.

Your way isn’t so far,
believe that you’re not on your own.
You’re every brand new thing,
now certainly is your time.

They always will try to move you away,
shut your eyes and pull you back.
They want you to live and to die,
as if you never existed..

Spread your wings,
and fly in the air..
Your ceiling is high,
up in the sky..

Here’s Coca-Cola’s ad, the song’s a lot lovelier with those kids singing. I assume you’ll like it despite the language… 🙂
