When you are off to a great visit.

7 WONDERS CAMP

Picture this. You have been on the road for a while, it's already dark and you start wondering if you'll ever arrive. Suddenly your driver stops on the top of a hill, turns of the lights and all you can see in front of you is THIS.

It looks like you are on the moon sometimes. What a stunning location this bedouin camp had!

And of course, there's always this hidden need of getting closer to the stars. And these ones were bright! Low light pollution and a desert, epic skies!

Again, well worth it.

Finally, how about hanging out on this bedouin tent with a sweet tea and some local music?

PETRA

Petra is the highlight of every tourist and traveler in Jordan. Or at least something that you need to check on your visit to this country! One of the 7 Wonders of the World, not every day you get to see so much greatness together!

And soon there you have it. The Treasury!  Carved in the sandstone and surrounded by tourists and locals at any given time. Busy square this one was!

Thanks so much to Abraham Tours for making it happen (and more on their hospitality very soon because our wandering wasn’t limited to Jordan. We also toured across the neighboring country, Israel and Palestine, with these guys!). Their 3 day / 2 night tour to Jordan from Tel Aviv was indeed one of the greatest things that happened to us this year so far. Go check them out!

    Cheers, N.

    Wow. Amazing picture of a truly Lonely Planet standard. We’ve just watched the migrationology series on Jordan and I’m sure it’s moved up our list a few spots now! Cheers C&K.
