David enjoyed a well earned holiday at Residence Arabesque this Autumn, road testing our accessibility for the wheelchair user as well as getting out and about in Dahab.  With his friends he enjoyed trips to St Katherines Monastery, the local Waadis and even tried his hand at scuba diving.  We look forward to offering all our future guests the opportunity to get out and about in Sinai and to try snorkelling and scuba diving regardless of their mobility needs.

Read here about the work of David’s amazing charity Motivation – Empowering disabled people throughout the world.
