The Kingdom of Jordan

The Kingdom of Jordan is a land with fasinating Historical sites and amazing beauty. From the fertile Jordan Valley, to remote desert canyons in Wadi Rum needless to say i certainly did not know what to expect of this country.

Our trip started out with a 5 and ½ hour flight to Amman flying with Royal Jordanian airlines who were brilliant. Fantastic onboard entertainment with a huge selection of  blockbuster movies. Great food (by airline standards) and best of all free drinks!!!

On arrival we headed straight to the Dead Sea resort located in the Jordan Valley which is the lowest point on earth (418m below sea level.) Here we got to smear ourselves in the rich mineral mud ,rumoured to have healing powers, and then clean ourselves off by floating in the saline waters of the Dead Sea. A very memorable and funny experience!!!

From the Dead Sea we travelled onto Wadi Rum which is basically a huge desert with massive sand dunes and wild camels roaming around. Here we followed in the footsteps of "Lawrence of Arabia" and trekked around the huge rock formations and even spent the night camping under the stars.

No travel to Jordan is complete without a trip to the historical site of Petra one of the most stunning cities in the Middle East. Petra was carved out of rock by the Nabatean people over 2,000 years ago. Here you travel through the deep gorge were you will be faced with the grand "Treasury" Petra's most elaborate ruin. Emerse yourself within the history that Petra has to offer from the Monsastry or the High Place of Sacrifice but make sure you have comfortable shoes on.

In summery Jordan certainly has something to offer everyone from beach resorts to great diving sites, historical site to shopping plazas. With great weather all year round its certainly should be on everyones list as a must see place!!!!
