Off to Jordan!

A year+ ago, we wrote about how we’d dream to be in Petra (here). And later on we wrote about how we were assessing the ways to get here (here). Yeah. Finally fruition has come through!

When we get to Jordan, this is the photo we want to take:

Approach to Petra

Ok not sure if there would be camels there or a busload of tourists photobombing us, but this scene is surely what we want. And so it keeps playing in our head. “In your heeaaad, in your heeaad, zombie zombie…”. Because like zombies we were unable to focus at work or our meals. And we were but mindlessly going about our day before we headed to the airport.

And we are off!

Actually, by the time you read this we would already have zipped across the Indian Ocean to Amman via Dubai and should be on the road towards Petra. Or for those in a later timezone, we would have already reached the town and preparing for tomorrow’s walk. Ooooh, can you feel our excitement exuding towards you from half a world away?

Don’t you get that kind of feeling when you’re about to go on what you perceive as an epic adventure? Some have written about this anticipation being a significant part of the entire journey. Do you think so? That excitement that Suan have (butterflies in the stomach) has apparently infected Mel too…

So what will we be embarking on?

We start off in Amman. From there it will be 5 days in the country getting to you know where before we cross over to Israel. Yup, we will explore Israel too and spend Christmas in Jerusalem. Well, last year was in the frigid cold, so this year’s quite a change.

A slew of scheduled posts will continue to stream from our blog, but no responses will come from us. Yeah, we’ll put our mind off blogging for the next two weeks and focus on the journey. So, we’d lay off logging in and reading blogs or posting comments, just like when we were in Hua Hin. Live the moment thoroughly and harness the days we have in the lands of the prophets. Anyway we are too damn cheap to data roam… heheh… though we’ll continue to post on IG whenever free wifi comes within range. Provided you follow us there too…

You folks enjoy the holiday season and ‘see ya’ in the new year!

Author: Mel & Suan

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

        1. Well enjoy N Ireland and tell us all about it. It has been 13 years since we went! Perhaps you can write a before and after series of the places you revisit – such as you did while in our little red dot!
