You know this was an epic journey. One that for us took a few years to finally make it. Yes!! We have finally placed our handprints on Jordan and Israel. Being able check off the bucket list item was one of our dreams come through.
The journey itself cannot be said to be tough, since we were protected, escorted, chaperoned and guided throughout the entire two weeks. All because we stick out like a sore thumb as Asians touring the middle east.
As you might know we started with Jordan. And in this post, we will share with you the link to part I of our captured itinerary. You know all about anticipation. Before you go and actually see a place for yourself, you have all sorts of images in your head and feelings about the place you are about to touch.
Sometimes, these feelings and images may have an anti-climatic effect when you finally get there. But not this one. For indeed Petra is as spectacular as they say, and as wondrous as it looks on IG. It was so awesome that we can only encourage you to make the same journey as we did and touch it for yourselves.
It was not a marathon, but we were determined to make the most of the time we had at the site that we almost clocked the distance. Ok. Half of it. The point being; how often is one going to be back in this wonderful location in the middle of a largely parched land? You know as we do.
Have you been to Petra? Don’t you think it is an incredible piece of heritage and history that should be protected?
