Rahul discovers Jordan

Mar 25, 2023 | Blog Posts, Far Frontiers Travel, Middle East, News, Trip Reports

Nothing quite prepared for me the impact this delightful country had on me in a week, with its amazing contrasts and ancient history. From the fantastic Roman remains at Jerash to the weirdly wonderful Dead Sea; sleepy Madaba with its amazing churches and Byzantine mosaics to Mount Nebo from where Moses viewed the promised Land; beautiful Petra which is hard to describe and where my walk up to the Monastery was a real highlight; and Wadi Rum with its magnificent views, amazing luxury camps, proud nomadic Bedouins and the famous Hejaz Railway and memories of Lawrence of Arabia. The people are what make Jordan special and from Mohammed my delightful driver guide companion to the local Bedouins and the many kind people I interacted with, they helped me understand their beautiful land and its history.
