10 countries and countless cities made it on my 2013 Bucket List. France, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, Jordan, Aruba, Curacao, Canada, USA, Mexico, and Fiji were all part of my whirlwind of adventures and new experiences. I never envisioned such an amazing year of opportunity; my life continues to be a dream come true. I am blessed. Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I want to live.
Here are my top ten favorite travel photos from 2013.
Number 4 – Petra Marriott Hotel
The Petra Marriott Hotel is conveniently located on a steep sloping site overlooking one of the most beautiful sights in the world, the Petra Valley, with rose red mountains and delights of colors playing against each other.
Jordan was one stunning photo after another. Do you take a lot of photos while traveling or are you more in the moment?
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.
