Let's talk about Visa

Good buy Dahab - What is she missing at most?

 Janett lived around one year in Dahab, before she decided to go back to Germany. I wanted to know, what she is missing at most from her time in Dahab? Her answer would also be my answer.

Are you an early bird? Dahab not!

Are you an early bird? Dahab not!

How does Dahab look at the early morning? Empty. Here is almost nobody. Compares to that the evening hours are really crowded. Then you will hear honking, voices and the noice of life.
