I hope you don't mind corrects? In English, we would say, "Have you ever been to Egypt".

I spent a few weeks in egypt a long time ago (1997). It was wonderful - the egyptian people are very warm and welcoming and very helpful. Coming from America, my first time in the middle east... I expected people to be angry and unfriendly, so it was a surprise. If someone just saw me looking at a map, they would ask me if I what I was looking for and walk down the street with me, to point the right way.

But I only learned a few words of arabic - which I have forgotten most of. The writing is just too difficult for me.
