I’ve always dreamed of seeing the Pyramids of Egypt and Petra and Wadi Rum in Jordan and finally made that dream happen this month. It is an amazing place full of amazing people and just the best experience! We had a very full 10 days but our tour director did a great job getting us around and seeing the most important things and learning a thing or two as well. It’s a different world to be sure but we also share so many things and I walked away with great memories and many new friends. A few marriage proposals too but alas I had to turn those down. The Pyramids of Egypt were incredible and possibly the most amazing place I’ve ever been is Wadi Rum. Truly breathtaking.
The people were so kind and fun. At a mosque I was inundated by about 20 kids on a school outing who were asking me a bunch of questions and just as intrigued by me as I was of them. I rode a camel that decided it didn’t want to go up the mountain but back home to dinner at a gallop but fortunately I was saved by my Bedouin who ran down to get him back. That was fun! But here are just slight few of my favorites from an amazing holiday abroad to the Middle East.
