What’s Your Favorite Jordan Photo

My Jordan journey included visits to the rose-red rock city of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and Wadi Rum, the desert T.E. Lawrence called “vast, echoing and God-like.” It also included a visit to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth and the world’s largest open-air spa, Mount Nebo and Madaba, the Dana Nature Reserve, Amman,  Jerash, Evason Ma’in Six Senses, Feynan, and Wadi Mujib. Every day was a bucket list day. From driving down the highway to trekking through the desert, I was able to capture my favorite moments on camera. Which photo draws you the most? Which one makes you want to add Jordan to your bucket list? Which one is most like paradise to you? Come to Jordan with me, if only for a few moments, and explore my favorite country  so far.

  1. The pool picture with the sun setting through the haze. None want me to add Jordan to my lists. Not this year anyway. We traveled for the better part of 13 months, last year and this year. Five continents. Resting now… my idea of traveling right this minute it to go from the studio to the kitchen and find something cold to eat. 🙂

      • Oh. We were only in most places for a day or two. The longest we stayed anywhere was The UK, Italy and India. Towards the end of each leg, our best entertainment was going to have a meal. When,we didn’t do that we either worked or slept. The best place? Home. 🙂

  2. There all great, colourful photos highlighting lots of great qualities Jordan has to offer – Each one tells a story!!!
    I think my favourite has to be the one of you under the waterfall…

  3. Sorry, instead of one favorite, I picked 4 “selects” shot #’s 2, 3, 8 and 16.
    #2- I just didn’t expect Jordan to look anything like that. Wow.
    #3 the color feels sumptuous. I want to be there now.
    #8 the “real” movie set
    #16 exotic and mysterious
    And ps- no camel shots were included because since the wild camel ride post, they’re not such a draw for me anymore 🙂

      8 was in Petra, which was a movie set (Indiana Jones)
      16 was at the Dead Sea

      All equally amazing experiences, even the camel ride 😉

  4. The pool pictures are my favorites, which is kind of funny to admit because the entire trip looked amazing. I like those the best because the settings are so exotic, the perfect escape. Look forward to reading more!

  5. The waterfall. It screams adventure and fun! The camel, surprisingly, captures my attention and makes me want to journey to those gorgeous trees! Paradise is found in all these images for me. Time to make a trip!

  6. Love them all:) Brings back my memories of visiting Jordan…went to about every place that you visited too. Loved Petra, it was so incredible and amazing walking down to it through the vast incredible canyon…seeing the workmanship…loved the desert and it was soooo ancient and very God like….Mt. Nebo was special and also took my breath away….the people and we traveled to dinner one night to the Bedouins in the desert outside of I think Petra….it was amazing and they are so humble and warm. I rode a camel and also floated in the Dead Sea….Aqaba was beautiful on the incredible Red Sea of beautiful colored water….and Masada was amazing and very hot….we went the end of June and it was hot and humid…but oh so very worth seeing. When we went it was for three weeks….landed in Syria, traveled to Turkey for a day…stayed about a week in Syria…Palmyra was awesome to visit and see….then on to Jordan and loved it and then on to Israel which was interesting and incredible…loved the Sea of Galilee! I would love to go back and revisit it all but Jordan stood out and was truly spiritual, beautiful and ancient. I love seeing your photos and your post on your visit:) Thank you for sharing and bringing back good memories:)

      • Hi there….no I have not written about my Jordan trip online. I did keep a journal during my travels as I went back in 1998. When we left Syria traveling into Jordan, at the border we had two Jordan policeman/guards join our tour group…I loved Jordan…Petra was incredible and I still talk about it to my husband as he stayed home. At that time we did not have a digital camera so all my photos have to be scanned into the computer etc. I did mention Petra this year in my gratitude blog….Feb. 14th…go check that one out and you will see two pictures of Petra. Like you my sister in law and I walked down into Petra but rode horses back out of Petra:) I will get out my journal and will see what I wrote. Reading your account brought back the incredible scenery and the feeling, emotions of my trip:)

      • Mmm…I’m sure it is! I was there for a few hours or so for vacation on my way to Israel. I saw some sites but didn’t eat while there. While in Saudi, I went to a birthday party for one of my Jordanian friends where I got to taste some authentic Jordanian made treats. Turkish coffee suited to Jordanian taste is awesome, and I’m not sure if cinnamon tea is traditional or not. However, it was my first time having it, and it was so delicious!!! They taught me some traditional dances and demonstrated the wild calls (screams/yells) they do along with them. It was fun :-)!

  8. Its difficult choosing but I like the first one with you and the guy, and the one with the camel. The colour is very good and they look like thorough travel photos that belong in a magazine! 😉

      • Nope haven’t been to Jordan yet, but planning to in the future! I really want to see Petra!
        Argh there’s just too many places on my list, but planning either to do a bit of Eastern Europe next year if not the US. The only problem with the US is that its too big, so its difficult choosing where to go and getting enough time off from work! Ah, such is life 😉

  9. I love all the photos but what inspires me to one day visit Jordan is the pictures of Petra. I am so interested in the history/culture of a country or city and Petra is definitely on my “bucket list”!

  10. Leslie, there are camels in paradise ? 😉
    They are all wonderful pictures but those rock formations and mountain terrain are stunning!

  11. The building with the mountains behind draws me in the most. The underwater image is the one that feels most like ‘paradise’ to me. And… they ALL want me to add Jordan to my bucket list. I think I’ve asked this before on a different post but didn’t get a response – is it expensive? hard to get to? what is your biggest Jordan tip in terms of making it happen?

  12. Photos of the Treasury at Petra have always drawn me to make it a top bucket list contender, right up there with the Great Wall of China. If you and a camel had been in the photo it would have been perfect.

  13. I especially liked the Petra pics and the minimalist sunset towards the end. The reflection of the sun and the scene in general was most soothing. Sounds like one helluva extraordinary sojourn!

    Take care,
