  • Last days in JordanOn the 8th we left Aqaba and headed to the Dead Sea. Disappointing for a couple of reasons, windy and dusty, which you can't do anything about, but the beach was badly littered with plastic bags, cigarette butts etc. Posted by CWalts in A New Adventure - Israel & Jordan | Jan 9, 2016
  • Into JordanMet the group last night. A nice mix of folks from everywhere from Tasmania to the U.S. Once again a well traveled group and all fairly young (compared to me:).

  • And on to JordanI arrived yesterday along with the bitter cold, wind and rain. I was lucky enough to get my room right away so I pretty much hibernated for the day. I realized I was exhausted so it was nice Posted by CWalts in A New Adventure - Israel & Jordan | Jan 1, 2016
  • Still Can't Believe This Airport Is in JordanWhen we'd first left the airport with our first piece-of-crap rental car what seemed like weeks before -- though it had only been five days -- I'd somehow thought to ask to where I should return the vehicle. This Posted by NellieVA in Visit to the Holy Land Over Holy Week | Apr 15, 2014
  • Exceeding ExpectationsWe knew from the beginning that we were trying to pack a lot of activity into a 10-day trip. One could easily spend several days in Petra and still not see everything in the city. That said, we'd Posted by NellieVA in Visit to the Holy Land Over Holy Week | Apr 13, 2014
  • Proverbial Day We'll Never ForgetMy favorite movie is "Lawrence of Arabia," which is ironic as I never visited the area of Wadi Rum -- where much of the movie was filmed, and site to many of the incidents documented in the film -- when Posted by NellieVA in Visit to the Holy Land Over Holy Week | Apr 14, 2014
