On Instagram last week I stumbled on the beautiful Nour El Nil – a collection of luxury Nile River cruises. The photos are mesmerizing – it’s like the most exotic cruise you can imagine and straight out of a movie. Striped sails! Cushions to lounge upon! Cooling white linens with views of ancient deserts and palm trees!

Their boats are called dahabiyas and feature eight or so rooms decorated simply and chicly. You’ll spend six languid days floating the Nile and visiting all manner of Egyptian temples, villages, etc. just like Florence Nightingale and Gustave Flaubert did in times past.

In other words, the perfect place to live out my hippie muumuu fantasy, complete with Birkenstocks and loads of linen.

Definitely worth a follow on Instagram, if you love travel and you secretly had a crush on Omar Sharif and/or Peter O’Toole in Lawrence of Arabia (I know – it’s Egypt, not Arabia. But still).
