See My Jordan Viewpoint

In the last few days, I hiked all of downtown Amman and the Citadel, Jerash, Evason Ma’In King's Highway, JordanHot Springs, Madaba and Mount Nebo, Feynan, and Little Petra and Petra, all while battling a cold and strep throat. We hiked for more than 5 continuous hours yesterday in the desert after sleeping in tents. It has been difficult at times, but here is a preview of some of the views. Do you see why it’s all worthwhile?

Finding a way to post while I’m off the grid in Jordan isn’t easy but it has been making the experience much more authentic, besides a few days disconnected from media and connected to nature are good for the mind and body.

See you in a couple days, and wait until you see more of Petra with me; it’s spectacular! Add it to the list now and you’ll understand shortly.

  1. Sadly, I missed a friend’s wedding last year which was in Jordan and seemingly a once-in-a-lifetime event. Sounded phenomenal: great food, beautiful country, amazing people…

  2. Love that! Went to Israel and Egypt many years ago and remember looking at Jordan across the Red Sea. It is fun to see what the view is like from the other side … I’m guessing it is Israel in the background?

  4. This is neat for me to have been to a place where you are! I loved Jordan, I have friends who live in Jordan. I didn’t get to do all the things you did, when I was there, but I can still identify with you and relive my experiences there! 🙂

  5. Awesome! I visited Jordan briefly en route to Israel. I got to see the older city and stood atop one of the citadels, as well as visited two of the Roman colosseums. I didn’t go to Petra, but the structure in your fourth photo resembles a similar structure located in the Kidron Valley just outside of the Old City in Jerusalem.

    Kudos to you for trekking through your ailments! I’d definitely say that it was worthwhile just by the beautiful pictures you’ve shared with us. So, I can only imagine what it was like to be there in the moment!

  6. Fantastic! As much as I like being connected to the world, there’s something cleansing about disconnecting in a far flung place. Looks like the set of an Indiana Jones movie. Hope you’re feeling better!

  7. I don’t know which pic I prefer – the UBER inviting swimming pool with loungers or you jumping for joy on a clearly incredible hike…
    think I better take your advice and add it to the list!

  8. Well up to your usual standard. Having been to Petra it brought back many happy memories of my time there when I read your piece. I wonder if a tiny steam room I visited is still there? It had a boiler leaking steam in all directions tucked in the corner of a room the size of a couple of sofas. I was convinced the boiler was going to blow any second!
