Lost & Found in Egypt:
A Most Unlikely Journey Through the Shifting Sands of Love and Loss

Bend, OR -- KMC Media Co. announces the release of an inspiring new memoir, by Kyla Merwin, titled, Lost & Found in Egypt: A Most Unlikely Journey Through the Shifting Sands of Love and Loss. Debuting at #2 on Amazon’s Middle East-Travel section, and earning a “Hot New Releases” rating, Lost & Found tells the story of one woman’s journey through Egypt and Sinai on the ‘Get-There-and-Wing-It Plan.’

With more dumb guts than preparation, a middle-aged woman with a desk job takes a solo journey to the Middle East after she suffers a devastating loss. In a voice both raw and illuminating, Kyla Merwin explores the back roads, bustling bazaars, and shifting sands of Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.

Kyla’s journeys take her through dramatic inner and outer landscapes – sometimes frightening, often hilarious and ultimately heartwarming – that finally bring her back home, and back to her most authentic self.

In the Eat Pray Love of the Middle East, Kyla navigates lost hotel reservations, maniacal street life, museums, monuments, and the wacky and warmhearted people she meets. These audacious travels also trigger reflections on the many tender, tempestuous and sometimes tragic love affairs that shaped her life.

For anyone who has ever felt stuck in their lives, or wonders if there isn't more to who they think they are, Lost & Found in Egypt is a must-read.

About the Author: Kyla Merwin has traveled extensively through the Pacific Northwest as well as many parts of Western Europe, Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.
