Re: Egypt

I went twice in El Gouna. When you land in Hourgada and take a taxi to El Gouna you crossed some millitary check points. Egypte has a strong army so it is doutbfull that you are at risk of beeing shot at by a ISIS commando. On the other hand, it happend in Kenya. A islamic commando came from Somalia...

Re: Again Fatality in South of France

I remember reading that the local club https://fr-fr.facebook.com/kitesurfleucate offers some jet ski rescue for 10 euro per day. But obviously on the sea side, not in the Leucate pound.
