Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"On of the funny experiences was when I traveled for the first time in a safari camping trip in the White Desert in Egypt. Everything was going smoothly and at night I went to my igloo tent to sleep. In the morning, I woke up and kept looking for my sneakers and didn't find them. We discovered that the Desert Fennec Fox decided to borrow them but he never returned them back. And since then, I always keep my sneakers inside the tent. "
