Folks close to me know that i’ve had a shaky first half of this year – from work to accident to post-accident recovery stress + weight gain to you name it – Murphy’s been wreaking havoc. But in the midst of all this, something fabulous also happened. a trip to a mystical land i knew very little about (ok, nothing about!)
But that’s the thing about places, i feel. You don’t necessarily have to know the history and geography of a destination that beckons you – that way there’s every little bit to be discovered, understood and experienced.
Speaking of Murphy’s law, on the last day of my trip to Jordan my beloved laptop decided to conk off – which means all my photos, videos and notes of the trip were now jeopardised (except for some data still lying on the camera SD cards).
So allow me to share more details of the trip in later posts, but here’s a little preview of what my itinerary looked like – perchance you’re planning to visit Jordan in the near future!
Amman, the capital city is no more than 4 hours away from any part of Jordan – making Jordan a great country to visit by road, and cover multiple spots in a short span of time.
Day 1 – Amman Day 2 – Amman to Petra Day 3 – Petra & Wadi Rum Day 4 – Aqaba Day 5 – Dead Sea Day 6 – Madaba, Biblical Trail & Ma’in Hot Springs Spa
While i assimilate all my files, photos and info about my epic Jordan trip (that i was live tweeting from), i’m just going to leave you with this trailer video i made from the trip!
Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
Flights: ~ Rs.25K return Stay: Rs.3K per night onwards Visa: On Arrival: (Advisable to get the Jordan Pass beforehand) Getting Around: Best with a self-drive. Roads are great, renting is easy, people are amazing!
