Safe from scorpions

Following yesterday’s post about personal stories, we would also like our readers to send Nature Travel your favourite blogs about Egypt, to be included here on the Nature Travel blog.

One of our favourites is Yes we have a little bias as we are based in Nuweiba, in Sinai. But that aside, we really enjoy reading these posts and invariably learn something new.

Tarabeen, Nuweiba, Sinai, Egypt

Many indigenous people have knowledge of plant and animal derived medicinal treatments, and slowly others are coming to recognize that many of these work and are better than popping artificially created medicines. Scorpions are something we have to deal with sometimes here, and this post on the Bedouin treatment for babies that provides immunity to scorpion bite is fascinating

Don’t let those little bitters turn you off a visit to Sinai with us. If you are reading this you are unfortunately too old for the Bedouin preventative, but sturdy shoes, and checking inside them before you slip your feet in, mean no scorpion worries.  Scorpions are one more on our “Shark Scares Tourists” list.

What’s that?

It’s Nature Travel’s list of things that many people are scared of and will avoid travel to a place because of, when really their fears are magnified or unfounded. For example, did you know that worldwide less than 10 people are killed by sharks each year, but 150 people are killed by falling coconuts? Yet coconut palms remain a symbol of holidays in travel advertising and suntan lotion advertising. Falling out of bed, deer, and icicles are among the things that kill more people than sharks do.

You can be assured that with Nature Travel your explorations of Egypt will be safe and comfortable, from city to mountains, sea to desert
