I have been incredibly fortunate to have been to over 60 countries during my travels and one of my favorite countries is Jordan, which is something that surprises many… but not those that have been there.
On my RTW trip, I went through much too fast, but did get to enjoy the wonders of Petra. Then in 2010, while I was in the region visiting Lebanon and Syria, I was lucky enough to be asked by the Jordan Tourism Board to come through on a sponsored trip to see some of the amazing sites there with a little more time. Jordan is an underrated backpacking destination as well. Whether you have 5 days in Jordan or a week or more, there are plenty of great things to do.
I really love the Middle East and Jordan is right up on the top of reasons why.
I still have a few posts I want to write about Jordan, one of the benefits to writing non-chronological blog is that I can just write about whatever strikes my fancy, when it strikes my fancy. Though that likely does lead to some confusion from ya’ll reading out there as to where I am at certain times. But for the time being, here at my posts about Jordan for you to review and hopefully enjoy:

Bottom line — I am a huge fan of Jordan.
In an area of the world that holds a particular fascination for me, Jordan is one of the highlights of the highlights. From the Roman ruins of Jerash, to the already famous Petra, to scuba diving and the beaches of Aqaba, to the marvels of the Dead Sea, Jordan is a country that should be on everyone’s agenda at some point in their life.
