With my house mate I spent three weeks over New Year 2008/9 travelling around Egypt. It wasn't cold, but neither was it warm. I did get a bit 'templed' and 'ruined' out by the end of the trip, but chilling in Dahab on the Sinai peninsula was a good antidote. The constant haggling did get a bit wearisome towards the end too, but the views were spectacular and it was a memorable first trip to Africa.
