Many women travelers also pushed on towards Nubia, past Aswan, the High Dam, Luxor, the island of Philae, Abu Simbel, Lake Nasser, and through villages of Nubia, getting exposed to the local rural life, the ways of Nubian women, the banks of the river and the floods. Some women travelers like Rosemary Mahoney even rowed alone on the Nile.
