El Gouna Writer's Residency - and Germanwings

The Red Sea resort of El Gouna is launching a Writers Residency programme next year. Check it out here for the details. It's to celebrate their 20th anniversary. I'd be exploring rather than writing, probably, maybe tempted by those piles of sickly but delicous cakes they sell in the Middle East to spend my time in coffee shops rather than toiling at my computer
Meanwhile, I'm sorting out a December trip to Cologne, in Germany, where I think I can confidently guarantee that things won't be so colourful. I've been looking at Germanwings which turns out to have flights not only to Germany but to many other places besides - and from regional airports too.


  1. I'm more tempted by German Konditorei than by those Middle Eastern coffee shops. When it comes to cream versus syrup cream wins every time. Nige.

  2. Wow, that's some pile o' sweets!
