Katy Perry turned 35 on 25th October and there were rumours doing the rounds on social media that the singer was in Egypt to celebrate this milestone. Now these rumours have been confirmed as Katy has shared pictures from her trip on her Instagram, writing, “this is living, Egypt Oct 2109.” Perry's typo in the post has led many to speculate the actress can see the future and we don't blame them!
In three of the pictures, which she shared with her 86.3 million followers, Katy can be seen in a silver dress, riding a camel along with actor fiancé Orlando Bloom, with the Pyramids appearing at a distance, in the dim background. In the other pictures, Katy is seen standing along and with Orlando, in front of the Pyramids, with the Dark Horse singer wearing a headscarf and a long green dress.

Ancient Egyptians believed that when you pass on your heart had to be weighed. It had to be lighter than a feather to be qualified for the trip to the afterlife. My mother has called me feather since I was a little girl and I hope after all is said and done my heart is as light as one. This is 35.
Orlando also took to Instagram to share some shots from the trip. In the first one, he is sitting alone and gazing at the Pyramids. In the second one, he is embracing Katy on the same spot and in the third picture, he is seen with his mother Sonia, who also accompanied them on the trip. Orlando captioned the photos as follows, “It’s like looking out over the entire cosmos - Egyptian magic got my heart open to a download of love for my Scorpio’s wonder women both celebrating their #birthday.”
Katy and Orlando were also accompanied by more than sixty close friends on this adventurous trip. The group took a 10-day luxury cruise around Egypt. Katy’s friend, Markus Molinari, shared a picture of the group on Instagram and wrote, “How to build a powerful bond in 10 days. Get 64 people hand picked by a musical goddess Katy Perry to live on a boat down the Nile with only one request from her that each of us step out of our comfort zones and for every meal sit with someone different. This would be our birthday gift to her. Beyond the magnificent gift of travel, she gave each of her friends memories of new friendship and a bond that only we will share for the rest of our lives."
