When I was growing up, my parents worked for the State Department of the United States. This meant that I did not spend most of my childhood in America, but rather in other countries around the world. In seventh grade, my family moved to Egypt. Egypt is an incredible country with a rich cultural history and stunning landscape. My family has always been outdoorsy, and so when we were invited by friends to go camping in the desert we packed up our car and off we went.
