Meet The Monsooners To Egypt 2.0 (Celebrating 10 Years of Travel!)

by | Oct 20, 2019 | Introductions | 0 comments


This November, I am blessed to be joined by the following 19 other trailblazing monsooners in celebrating my 10 year anniversary since my fateful, spontaneous trip to Egypt that started it all.

And the very reason why you’re reading this blogpost, let alone how 18 of the following people are coming together on a life changing journey next month, is because of that very trip in 2010.

Especially to those who are returning with me for their 2nd, 3rd, or even 8th monsoon:
