I've bought an apartment in Hurghada, 1 bedroom thing 48SQM. 5 mins drive from El Gouna.  Cost me £18K but just for the shell. Another 8K to get bathroom, kitchen fitted, Air Con, white goods, TV's, satalite receiver, pots, pans, bed, bedding a proper turnkey place. Annual maintenance is £250 which includes sat TV and utilities are £20 per month. Same as Spain but 20% of the price. So in the next year or so I shall spend summer in the UK and winter in Egypt. Couldn't buy a caravan in the UK for that sort of money. It's on the beach, has a gym, sauna, spa, supermarket, pharmacy, bars and restaurants and 3 swimming pools

Only downside is that I'm likely to be murdered

Get yersen one of these to avoid any embarrassment or discomfort in the event your future kidnappers don't have your size...

But, fuck it, at that price it's worth any risk, do it now rather than some Spanish pipe-dream down the line...

Your a braver man than me wouldn’t trust anywhere in the Muslim world, too unstable and dangerous for Christians and I include Turkey in that.

As the matchless Winston Churchill once said "Islam in a man is like rabies in a dog".

An infection that leads to madness.

Dangerous for you Christians and we atheists.

You're paraphrasing but you're not far off.

'How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.'

I'd agree with the fearful, fatalistic apathy part.

Anyway - I've just realised that I've fallen victim to another thread about an unrelated  topic that become about not trusting Muslims within 2 pages.

It’s not racism it’s fact, only on WW would posting an opinion on where I would and wouldn’t purchase a property  be labeled racist. 

I travel extensively in Muslim  countries and have for over 20 years and have good friends who are Muslims, however I wouldn’t dream of buying a property, Christians are being murdered and vilified in Egypt and Erdogan is changing the moderate Islamic state that Turkey was towards a hard line Islamic state and one moderate Turks don’t recognize and even fear.

That's racism, right there, however you dress it up.

You really need to take a course on the actual true meaning of words. Racism? FFS.

I am beginning to doubt your intelligence. Bigotry maybe. Racism, go on then, explain which race is being insulted.

You've fallen victim to using hundreds of words to achieve what I did with ten.
