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. I would say it’s a toss up between the glance up at Petra’s towering height and the picture of the camels with the blue sky in the background contrasting the red hues of the desert. Although now I’m sure you view those camels in a whole different light after your experience! But by the looks of the rest of your pictures it appears that you still had a marvelous time in Jordan. 🙂


  2. I would just love to try that open-air spa!

    Which photo draws you the most?

    The picture that drew me in the most was definitely the one with the rock mountain formation and dessert like landscape. I’m a sucker for rock mountains like the ones found in Arizona. I’ve only been to Hoover Dam in Nevada, so I got to see a bit of the dessert and the rock mountains, but these look amazing!

    Which one makes you want to add Jordan to your bucket list?
    I’ve always wanted to visit Jordan’s splendid Red Sea resorts! The Red Sea is what interests me the most and the salt water would help with my skin aliments.

    Which one is most like paradise to you?
    My interpretation of paradise is more historical, so I would choose the picture that features the caves and architecture within the rocks. What is that called again?

    Great posts, travel adventures are always the best!

  4. Definitely the clouds behind the rock formations. One of my dear friends, who has been in my life for 28-years, had an assignment in Jordan and also hosted military and other government personnel in her home this past spring. She says that the Jordanian people are beautiful, and that they have the best understanding of family.


  5. Tough one Lesley. As a passionate traveler, they all do. The pool is so special… not just from a spa-like image, but for the hazy beauty. I love the first one, because for me it is the connections with the people I meet that make each trip extra special. The tree is gorgeous for it’s solitude and desert beauty. And the image of Petra calls to me. Hard to say… love them all for different reasons. If you ever go to India, call me. I have no doubt we would have a blast there together and I am always game to return! Warning: I like to freefall. 🙂


  6. I am biased, as a fiction I am writing uses Petra. The last picture, I believe, is of the Street of Facades? Pictures of these seem few and far between, even on Google Images. Therefore, for the pictorial path less travelled, it gets my vote =)


  7. Hi Lesley!
    I think each & every one would be favorites as they all relate to my life some as I relate it to where I live now. There are things in these pictures that also bring to me through history books & will be so great when taking the family there to see soon. They are like a spiritual sense of time for me also. Thanks & have a great day!
