10 days in Egypt for Katy Perry’s birthday

The American pop star, accompanied by her husband Orlando Bloom and their entourage, has published on the networks many pictures of her recent trip to the land of the Pharaohs.

We knew she was particularly fond of Egypt. So is he, by the way. For the singer’s 35th birthday, they didn’t hesitate to go there with their family and friends for a 10-day trip. 

Thus, on the Instagram accounts of the main protagonists, we can see the merry band (60 people in total) enjoying a dinner in a temple in Edfu or a night ride in the desert on camels. 

 

A celebration of Egyptian heritage

Of course, the archaeological treasures in Egypt are honored, starting with the great pyramids of Giza, the last wonders of the ancient world still standing, or the Sphinx.

 

And the couple loudly proclaims their passion for Egyptian landscapes: the British actor has captioned one of his Instagram posts “It’s like looking out over the entire cosmos”, while Katy Perry is openly admiring the pharaohs and their architecture, supposedly since she took on the role of Cleopatra in her video Dark Horse.  

There is no doubt that with 90 million followers between them, Egypt has found itself two ambassadors of choice!
