“There is nothing I can say about Jordan that others who have travelled to this country have not said before.
We were a large group, 20 in all, age ranging from 20`s to 60`s but unusually with a large group we all got on so well together.
We started our trip with a visit to Jerash, nothing could have prepared us for the shear volume that was there with even more yet to be uncovered, absolutely fantastic to stand there in the footprints of these ancient people who created these wonders.
Onto the Dead sea, I thought it was going to warmer than it was but those of us who went in had a quick float around, a pity we could not see the sites in Israel over the other side of the sea as it was quite misty.
Petra was next for us, the Treasury was revealed to by a trick the guide (Zuhair) played on us and what a site, although this is really only a fraction of what is there.We spent 2 days walking around, up and over in awe at the scale and colours, every corner revealing another site or view to take your breath away.
Ah camping in the desert hold that thought, how romantic, after a 4x4 ride in the desert we climbed aboard our camels for a ride again into the desert. on our return dinner was prepared but due to a strong wind we ate inside a really smokey large tent. Those of us who brought along a sleeping bag did ok but the the temperature dropped and it was cold, yes it really was.
To complete our trip we moved onto Aqaba which was different again, much like many sea ports in the middle east.
I found this trip so enlightening and awe inspiring to be the best of the many I have been on with exodus, thank you.”
