Hello from Mrs Mahmoud


Hello, my name is Mrs Mahmoud. I’m a British woman and I’m happily married to an Egyptian man . We live in Dahab in South Sinai, Egypt.

When I first started writing this blog in May 2013 I thought that it would be good for people to read a positive story about a relationship between a British woman and an Egyptian man as we often hear stories about British women who have had holiday romances with an Egyptian, Moroccan or Tunisian man which turned into a total nightmare.

I’ve been overwhelmed with the positive responses to my blog and I’m delighted that so many people actually read it.

I love this stat from my WordPress annual report from December 2015 –

mrsmahmoud.com was viewed about 22,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it!

I receive a lot of messages from people saying how much they enjoy reading my blog and many people have said that they’ve now added Dahab to their travel wish list.

Many women have contacted me to say that they love my blog as they’re also in a relationship with an Egyptian man and before they discovered mrsmahmoud.com they had only found negative stories on the internet regarding non-Egyptian women marrying Egyptian men. Although I try to respond to most messages that I receive, unfortunately I can’t reply to them all – especially when people are asking for my opinion about their relationship or specific advice about the marriage process or visas. (I love hearing your stories though so please keep sharing them with me!)

Thank you for reading my blog, and I hope to see you in Dahab one day.

Mrs Mahmoud

  1. Hi Fiona, thanks for your message. It is great to hear that you enjoy reading my blog. I’ve been over in England for the past 8 weeks and arrived back in Dahab yesterday. I’ll be writing a new post very soon! x

  2. Hi Fiona,
    Thanks for your comment. I was over in the UK for 8 weeks this summer but as you’ve probably read from my last 2 posts I’m back in Dahab now.
    Thanks for reading my blog.

  3. Hi Emma,

    Thank you for your comment. I’m pleased to hear that you’ve found my blog helpful. I would love to hear your story about your and your Egyptian man, and I’m happy to give you advice (but of course every relationship is different). My email address is mrsmahmoud@icloud.com if you would like to send me an email.


  4. Mrs Mahmoud, I hope you will keep blogging, as so enjoy reading about your time in Dahab. Like when you told us about buying gas, just lean out of the window and shout that you want one. When I am in Luxor, I see the donkey and cart, with the gas containers, and the men clanging on them as they drive by the houses. I love reading about everyday life.

    Now have to tell you, went to London for my birthday, and found Koshari Street, and had a bowl for lunch. So thank you for telling me about this place, wish I had one closer, but it was a real treat. Wish it had been at Egyptian prices, but hey ho! It was good all the same. I told them a lady in Egypt had let me know about this place!

    Sorry to hear about closing the restaurant, tourism is so bad for Egypt right now. The only people I know who go, are repeat tourists. So many of my friends, or anybody else I come into contact with, will not consider anywhere in Egypt, basically calling the place unsafe. As I flew to Luxor in April, on one of the papers it proclaimed ‘ISIS to bomb the costa’s ‘, so I knew I was fine in Luxor – no mass tourism there. How they have managed since 2011 amazes me ŵith so few tourists. The flights through Egyptair are so very very expensive, even people who want to go, can’t afford it now. How Egyptians afford those prices heaven knows.

    I hope you continuing blogging for us, shame we won’t hear about the restaurant until it reopens in better times.
