The Somewhere Different story in Siwa Oasis
Somewhere Different: Siwa – Egypt is a co working / co living space in Siwa Oasis – 300kms in to the Sahara desert in Egypt. We provide reliable internet for Digital nomads looking for a work environment – Somewhere Different.
Why did I set up a co working / co living space in Siwa? I get asked this question all the time. It’s a long story see my book called Somewhere Different. My family and I were wiped out by the Tsunami in Sri Lanka in 2004 and so set up Somewhere Different – somewhere different. Not in Sri Lank but here in Siwa because we bought half a kilometer of lake front whilst on holiday here before going to Sir Lanka. For ten years or so the Siwa Villa offered up market family tours as you can see from our Trip Advisor listing.
One revolution and divorce later we shut down for some years. In 2018 I opened up again. I now work full time online running www.ontop.agency based in Lviv Ukrain / London England and from Somewhere Different in Egypt. Like before, I realised catering for like minding people is a best way to give them what they want, as you know exactly what they want. Before it was middle class families from the UK, Now it you – Digital Nomads and remote workers who need to get stuff done in the week on a relabel internet connection in a work environment that gives you no excuse other than to get your stuff done.
I spent yeas learning to drive in the desert out in the dunes. I have a 1982 Land cruiser and yeah – I love to get out there at the weekends. So this is what Somewhere Different co working / co living in Siwa is all about – work hard in the week and explore/party out in the desert at the weekends. I look forward to meeting you and working along side you in the co working space and yeah – sharing a bottle of what ever we have at the time out there in the dunes at the weekend 🙂
