Hurghada and sleeping in Hurghada!

IMAG1704

I woke up by 7:30 am and got off by 7:45 am, arriving at alzaeem café by 8:15 at Aldhahhar sq.

I had my breakfast and my cup of tea, planned my day and started moving around Hurghada.

I decided to gp first to Anba Shenouda Church. It was really nice, but unfortunatelly they did not allow me as an Egyptian to take photos inside the church! However, foreigners are allowed to take photos!!! Anyway, I managed to take some photos from outside!

Then, I head towards Senzo Mall, recorded some videos there, and came back to Aldahhar where Center Libya is located. I recorded another video over there and got lots of valuable information that I would need in my video.

Later on, I went to Almazareta café at Mubarak 8 district to recharge my mobile and have some rest.

Afterwards, I went to pray El Asr at the local mosque of Mubarak 8 district which is called “Masjid Alrouda”. It is a really nice and big masjid. I prayed and had some rest at the Masjid while recharging my mobile.

Then I went to Sheraton street, recorded some videos at the street and at Seagull mall which is in the same street. Then I continued walking along the courniche and recorded the video about accommodation in Hurghada.

Then I went home for lunch and rest!

Afterwards, I went to Dhahhar Market, recorded it and
went back home for sleeping.

See you tomorrow inshaAllah J

Hurghada… planning and planning and planning!!!

This day was not very fruitful!

I started my day by going to elzaeem Cafe at Aldahhar square by 8 am. I stayed there browsing the internet for more information about Hurghada.

Then I went and prayed Al Gumaa with my brother at Al mamsha elseyahi.

Then I went to take some photos and video of some accommodation entities!

Then I stumbled by Abdulmenem Reyad Masjid, in which I prayed Al Asr and stayed there until 5 pm planning and planning and planning!!!

Anyway… I hope all those plans will be applied in the next couple of days or else they would be useless!

Thanks for reading, and see you tomorrow 🙂

Hurghada and first video production… Transportation in Hurghada

I woke up very early at 5 am and could not sleep again.

I went out by 5:30 playing motivating music as I decided not to give up!

I reached “elzaeem” cafeteria at “Aldhahhar Square” by 7:30 am and kept working on editing “Transportation in Hurghada” until 5pm. After I finished, I thought the video is very good now and everyone will love it. However, when Ayman and Amani watched it they did not like it very much yet they agreed that it is much better than yesterday’s one!

I would like to have your opinion also about it… below is the link:

Your feedback is highly appreciated… see you tomorrow.

Hurghada and first shooting experience…

IMAG1396I started the day by sitting in “Elmazareta Zaman” Café. A very local Cafeteria near home, but the wifi there is good! It is not very clean though!!!

I stayed there for around three hours watching some videos to learn techniques from and planning for my day!

I moved towards “Elmamsha Elseyahi” by 10 am. In my way there, I found an abandoned beach in which I thought it might be a good place for shooting my video! I went there and recorded many videos. It took me around 2 hours, and I thought that I am good to go with my first video.

By 12pm, I went to Ayman, my brother, at work and stayed with him for half an hour. Then I went to a nearby cafeteria called “Arabesk” which was a bit expensive but good! There was no wifi there but the atmosphere was great. I did not need the wifi anyway as I needed to work editing my video.

I kept working on the video for around three hours, then I went back to Ayman at work and continued working for another one hour until we left.

We went home and had lunch together and I thought it might be a good idea to let them watch my video and tell me their opinions about it…

They did not like it at all and they thought it was boring… !!!

I felt disappointed!

But I thought I will work on making it better or even make a new one and I will not give up!

I felt asleep from disappointment… very early!!!

Hurghada and wish me good luck…!!!

I woke up today by 6:30am and left home by 6:45.

As usual, I went to Meshmesha Café, had my coffee there and planned my day.

I planned to collect the needed materials for my “Transportation in Hurghada” video and blog entry in Travelatory. These materials were to go to (Hurghada airport, Seqalla sq, Aka sq, and Aldhahhar sq) and record videos there about different means of transportation from/to (like planes and buses) and inside Hurghada (e.g. Microbuses, taxis and car rental).

I was caught from the police at Hurghada airport because it was not allowed to record videos at the airport! This happened after I really suffered going through lots obstacles getting to the airport! Anyways, they “released” me after “watching” all the videos I recorded and found nothing suspicious about them!!!

Anyway, I continued the journey of the day and went to the other places but realized that it is really difficult to say all the information I have in the middle of the squares especially that in each square there was an authoritative entity and I did not want to get caught again! 😀 So I snapped some photos, and recorded quickly some short video which I hope I would be able to use producing my video after adding the audio at home!

Moreover, I did not find any source that can tell me any information about microbuses (the only public transportation) routes in Hurghada! I decided to draw the routes of them on a map, but couldn’t get one either. That’s why I drew one and drew the routes on it and I hope to find an electronic method to drew them and include it in the video!

See you tomorrow!

Hurghada and hopes

IMAG1385[1]I woke up by 7:30 am, and went out to stayin Meshmesha Café. I had a cup of coffee there and planned my day.

I went to the banks to finish some financial issues, but unexpectedly it took me around 6 hours to finish all of them!

After that, I went to Samir & Aly stationary bookstores and bought a notebook and a pen.

Later I went and stayed with my bother Ayman at his workplace for about half an hour in which I had lunch!

Then I went to another cafeteria called Masr Zaman and tried to prepare for the videos about travelling.

Then I tried to go to the airport and tried to record the first video there, but I couldn’t reach there before sunset so I decided to postpone it for tomorrow.

Instead I recorded some random thoughts about my impressions about Hurghada.

See you tomorrow… Amir
