Subject: RE: BS: Where to go in October / November
I think I'd suggest taking a cruise of the Aegean along with that trip to Turkey. Italy is wonderful in November, by the way.

I think you're wise not to go to Egypt without a companion. I was there in May, and I didn't feel comfortable going places by myself. I was fine when I was with my sister, who was living in Alexandria and knew her way around - and most of the time, her husband and two adult children were with us, all seasoned travelers.

One thing women travelers should know - women get harassed in Egypt, all the time. Best to travel in a group.

I went to Egypt and Ireland in May, and to Italy in June. Egypt and Italy were very hot at that time, but I enjoyed them nonetheless. November would be a better month for both Egypt and Italy.
