Five Tips for Your Best Trip to the Pyramids

By Eric Schenk 

If you are coming to Egypt to teach, you will, at some point, take the trek. It will either be the first thing you do when you hop off the plane, or, like me, it will take you a full five months before you get around to it.

I’m talking, of course, about the pyramids. The pyramids of Giza are some of the most amazing things you will ever see. Huge and golden and majestic in the sun, they are even more incredible than the pictures. Sometimes, pixels just can’t do history justice.

From Cairo to Germany - Still Intact, and Stronger

By: Eric Schenck 

My name is Eric, and I don’t really know what I’m doing with my life.

For almost three years, I lived in Cairo, Egypt. I was certified to teach English through International TEFL Academy in April of 2015. One month later, I graduated from Gonzaga University. Three months after that, I packed my bags, quit my job, and flew out. 

On August 11th of 2015, I arrived in the land of the pharaohs. It is now September of 2018. I write this from my new apartment in Düsseldorf, Germany. It seems like an entire lifetime of experiences has passed by in just moments.
