Dear Readers,


As we begin the new year, there are many resolutions that we prepared that have turned into yearly rituals, like getting fit, giving back to the community, finding a fulfilling hobby and experiencing new things.


Sports is definitely a recurring theme throughout this issue, which begins by familiarizing our readers with the World Kiteboarding League that has been hosted in El Gouna for
the second year, taking them through the day, from the tricks performed to the results (p.6). Similarly, El Gouna welcomes the Wakeboard and Wakeskate Championship for the first time in Egypt! (p.26)


Looking for a new, well-equipped gym that offers support and incredible packages? Then head to our article on Vitalis Gym that will definitely help you fulfill your resolution this year (p.38). No more excuses!


The gift giving Christmas spirit is definitely in the air! Get an idea of how El Gouna prepared for the festive season by reading the Christmas Preparations and Holiday Celebrations article (p.10), and how El Gouna International School is helping raise a generation that is aware of the significance of community spirit (p.30).


Find out all the diverse activities and places to go to everyday in El Gouna by checking out the How I Spent my Week in El Gouna article (p.18).


Don’t miss more on El Gouna FC’s climb back to the Egyptian Premier League, restaurant and movie reviews, the theatre community in El Gouna and much more in this issue!


Wishing you all a lovely start to the new year.
