Loose Valley Care Home residents take a virtual trip to Egypt

This week at Loose Valley Care Home we continued our virtual travel and took our residents to Egypt on our Nellsar mini cruise.

We started in Cairo, travelling through the Saraha desert to the Nile and down to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, chatting about the mummies and the pyramids as we went.

For lunch we were treated to a wonderful Egyptian-themed menu which went down a treat. It included hummus and baba ganoush, lamb koftas and spicy chicken Shawarma. We even had turmeric herbal tea to keep us hydrated in the Egyptian heat!

In the afternoon we enjoyed Egyptian bingo and a themed quiz. Then our resident Joy told us stories of her trip to Egypt with her daughter in the 90s – she has kept her itinerary, tickets and photos, and spoke about her experiences of the country, including the fact that it rained for the first time in months whilst she was there!

We all thoroughly enjoyed our journey to Egypt and are looking forward to sailing on to Japan!
