    “Me: Mom do you want to see the Pyramids? - Le mom: Yes, why not” 🙋
    A spur of the moment decision to check off one of the 8 wonders of the world, that’s how I embarked on this mother daughter journey along with 16 other women from different walks of life. The trepidations that I had on going on an all women trip proved to be unfounded to say the least!
    We started the trip as 18 different individuals from different walks of life, we ended up walking away as a group of friends who learnt a lot from each other. Thank you WOW for making my first international trip with mom such a huge success!
