It was such a wonderful holiday! I have a new favourite activity, and that is snorkeling among the thousands of fishes at the coral reefs. I'll never again go on vacation to a place where they don't have corals. To swim amidst hundreds of incredibly colorful fishes is such an amazing experience!
We didn't climb Mount Sinai, but we visited the monastery of St. Catherine, and did a snorkeling trip by boat to Ras Mohammed. Unfortunately my dad's new waterproof camera broke after three days, and while he can return it as it is still under warranty, that nevertheless means that we couldn't take as many underwater pictures as we had hoped - but there were some that came out well. I'll do a longer post with pictures later on. :)
For now, a picture that shows exactly what snorkeling there is like, though it is not one of mine:
