Later on we could get married in the official way, I agreed. All this with the money I had from an inheritance and a small loan.I'm flying to Sharm (First Choice Holiday Village) in 5 weeks with my 4 month, 3 year old and hubby... Is there anyone who's been there who could offer advice, warnings, suggestions for the holiday to be great! We visited a local market and it was awful and quite scary.I'm breastfeeding, so any breastfeeding advice whilst in a hot country would also be really appreciated Thanx! If you do go out anywhere get the Taxis your rep recommends(they normally have a company within your hotel) and not the locals taxis.Hi My partner & I along with our 3 year old daughter are lookign to go away mid May somewhere nice and hot and have found a lovely hotel in Egypt sharm el sheik.I have always loved the look of egypt but always been put off by hearing of people being badly sick when they have been.Be careful if snorkling as I got stung by a jelly fish and it was very painful so take some piriton!
