Ivanka Trump and her family have jetted off to the Middle East ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday to enjoy their first trip to Egypt together.
The former White House senior adviser, 41, took to Instagram on Monday to share photos of herself touring the pyramids and riding camels with her husband, Jared Kushner, 41, and their three children —Arabella, Joseph, and Theodore.
The family vacation comes less than a week after she announced that she is done with politics and will be prioritizing her private life instead of joining her father’s presidential campaign.
‘A day at the Pyramids! So special to explore the beauty of Egypt for the first time with my family!’ she captioned the carousel of images, which starts with a picture of her sitting on a camel.

Ivanka is dressed in a long-sleeve white dress with buttons down the front and sneakers for the outing. Her long blonde hair is styled loosely around her shoulders, and she is holding a wide-brim hat in her hand.
One family shot shows the couple and their three children smiling brightly while posing together inside a mosque.
Arabella, 11, looks like the spitting image of her mom at that age in a pale blue top with short chiffon sleeves and matching pants. Unlike most tweens, she had an actual camera to take pictures with instead of a cellphone.
Meanwhile, Jared and his lookalike sons, Joseph, 9, and Theodore, 6, all wore white T-shirts, khaki shorts, and sneakers for their day of touring.
The dad, who was born and bred in New Jersey, showed his love for the New York Yankees with his blue and red-lettered baseball cap.

Everyone is standing in the family picture except for Theo, who opted to kneel next to his mom while grinning at the camera.

Ivanka shared plenty of shots of the pyramids, including the Great Sphinx of Giza. She also posed for pictures standing on one, both with and without her husband.
The former first daughter appeared to be having a great time on the family vacation and shared even more snapshots on her Instagram Stories.
Another additional image shows her children wearing headscarves in the desert while posing next to the camels.

Ivanka and her husband, Jared, looked worlds away from the hustle and bustle of their old lives in Washington, D.C. as they enjoyed their vacation together.
It’s unclear how long they plan on staying in Egypt and if they are going to spend the Thanksgiving holiday there.
The couple has reportedly been comparing themselves to Ned Stark from Game of Thrones when people ask them about their plans should her father, Donald Trump, be re-elected president in 2024.
The fictional Stark was famously decapitated after he was lured into the political viper pit of Westeros’ capital at the request of his close friend King Robert Baratheon.
Jared and Ivanka have decided they enjoy their ‘gilded’ life in Miami too much to rejoin Trump on the campaign trail, according to Vanity Fair.

The report came just a few days after Trump announced his plans to run in 2024, which was quickly followed by a statement from Ivanka announcing she would not be involving herself in the campaign.
The mother of three looked happy as could be wakeboarding — just as the Vanity Fair article detailing her and Jared’s decision to step back from politics was published.
In the piece, it was claimed that the couple is embracing a quiet life in Florida, having escaped what they reportedly refer to as ‘the jackals’ in Washington, D.C.
According to Vanity Fair, Ivanka has ‘drawn a boundary around her relationship’ with her father for the first time after having spent years working closely with him.
She appeared on his reality show The Apprentice, worked inside his company, and then served as a senior advisor in his administration, alongside her husband.
The blunt line drawn by Ivanka was evident to all on Tuesday night, when Trump announced his 2024 run from Mar-a-Lago — an event from which his daughter was conspicuously absent.
She soon released a statement that expressed her support for her father but announced that she would not be involving herself in her politics.
‘I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family,’ she said. ‘I do not plan to be involved in politics. While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena.’
Jared and Ivanka moved to Florida after they left their posts at the White House, and they quickly began laying down new roots.
Last year, they scooped up a $24 million waterfront mansion that sits on 1.3 acres on Indian Creek — an exclusive island that is known as the ‘Billionaire Bunker.’
It is believed that they plan on moving into the spatial 8,500-square-foot abode once their extensive renovations are completed. They bought the fixer-upper a little over a year after they dropped $31.8 million on a two-acre plot of land on the island in 2020.
In the meantime, they have been living in a ritzy three-floor apartment at Arte Surfside, one of the most expensive condo buildings in Surfside, Florida.
The residence, which is nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour has a tennis court on the roof, and they have their own private pool and yard.
According to Vanity Fair, they have become such regulars at high-end restaurants like Carbone that customers barely turn their heads when they walk in these days.
‘No one cares anymore. They’re all rich and spending a lot of money,’ a source told the magazine. ‘That’s the equalizer, and it’s stronger than anything else they’d agree or disagree on. Though it happens that they mostly agree here.’
The publication suggests that they have ‘found their crew’ in Florida after having been ostracized by many of the high-society connections they once socialized with while living in New York City.
In Miami, their close connection to Trump’s presidency is not seen as a smear on their reputations — quite the opposite in fact.
‘At many restaurants, owners and servers pat Jared on the back, a thank-you to Trump pushing to open businesses back up during the pandemic,’ the piece stated.
The couple has been seen living it up in the sun since they left D.C.
Pictures of them frolicking on the beach with their kids have become mainstays in the tabloids, and Ivanka has posted pictures of herself wakeboarding, fishing with their kids, and vacationing across the world.
Ivanka has also been photographed with an ensemble of celebrity friends, most notably being spotted hanging out with Kim Kardashian a few weeks ago.
Jared seems to be thriving, as well. He wrote and published a memoir, Breaking History, which enjoyed a run at the top of The New York Times Best Seller List despite critics lambasting it in their reviews.
Meanwhile, his new private equity firm, Affinity Partners, has at least $3 billion in backing from Saudi partners.
The firm has a glorious office overlooking the ocean, and received at least 400 pitches in its first year, according to Vanity Fair.
