Solitaire may be the very definition of a "tourist trap," but no matter who you are, when you see a group of buried vintage cars in the middle of the Namibian desert, you stop.
.
.
The whole little town (including the name) seems like something you'd find in the Old West. You only remember your in Africa when you see the sign for the Cheetah rehab center at the other side of town. .

I could give you 1000 guesses and you’d never be able to guess where I got this absolutely phenomenal and affordable steak dinner 🥩... I’ll give you a hint.  It was INSIDE of the largest game reserves in the world... .
.
.
Kruger National Park! 🦁
.
.
.
Did I also mention that this fancy shmancy meal was included in our 3D/2N BUDGET safari tour with Africa Spear? 🤩 Talk about a travel & food bloggers dream 🤞🏼 #isthisreallyhappening #freesteakdinner .

Just spending the morning chilling in a herd of water buffalo. You know, the usual.
.
.
I never realized just how much damage a herd of this size can do until I saw firsthand. They're essentially a giant lawnmower moving their way across the Park. .
.
They were so busy eating EVERYTHING in sight, I don't think they even noticed we were watching. The perfect spot for a little (instant 🤢) coffee. .

Giraffe, 12 o’clock 🕛🤩👀
.
.
.
This is one of the things we’d say whenever we saw an animal to alert our group to look and 🤫and the guide to stop the vehicle 🛑 .
.
.
Although when I saw a lion, I got so excited that I just kept repeating “lion, lion, LION” over and over again - which is one reason why I couldn’t snag a selfie with them... well, that and they’re SUPER lazy and blend in with the grass so it’s almost impossible to see them during their 23 hour a day nap 😂 #fail #itsnoteasysneakinguponthekingofthejungle .

Too many cooks around the braai 🤣
.
.
.
During our safari in Kruger, we got the choice to grill (braai) or eat at one of the restaurants in camp serving French fries and sub par burgers (aka tourist food)... in this case, I’ll always pick grilling!! Later, our guide said we were the first ones to pick that option EVER 😂 #wheninafrica #notsuchatouristytourist .

After seeing Kruger and Etosha, I really don't think I can go back to a zoo again.
.
.
I never realized how defeated most zoo animals I'd seen were until I saw them in the wild here. From running giraffes and herds of several hundred grazing zebras to happy elephants playing in water just a few yards away, you really get to see them in their natural state.
.
.
In cases like Kruger, the park is so large that the animals' habitat and migration patterns are hardly affected. As for population control, it's done the natural way, so it's not uncommon to pass a kill in various stages of being eaten.

My spirit animal: the baby giraffe. .
.
Anyone who knows me knows my feet and hands are too big for my body, so I tend to be a bit clumsy. .
.
I have to chalk this nickname up to @dwn2marsgirl , who has probably endured the most accidental trippings, hittings, and collisions of anyone, especially on this trip. .

Kruger National Park is huge, so even with three days of game drives, you're not guaranteed to see the "Big 5" before you leave.
.
.
Luckily, we had an awesome guide and a car full of people who actually knew how to keep quiet, so we got 4 out of 5 (everything but the Rhino) on the first day before heading off to camp. .
.
As for Impala like the one in this photo - you will see so many, the car will get mad at you for calling them out. Possibly speaking from personal experience...

We took a shockingly low number of photos in Tofo Beach because we basically just laid around on the beach, ate, or played Scrabble (no, seriously).
.
.
It wasn't quite the mid point of our 12 month trip, but it was close enough that we appreciated being able to kick back, do a few dives, and make some memories. .

🥥🌴Can you really be in paradise without fresh coconuts just outside your door? .
.
.
We got to not only enjoy endless amounts of coconut but we learned about the different types too (green vs brown): with green you get coconut water and brown (first picture) you get to make delicious coconut milk - which we did not hesitate to make Thai curry with the very next day 🤗🍜
.
.
.
At some of the local bars, they even serve coconut cocktails where they pour baileys coconut rum right into a coconut full of coconut water 🙋🏻‍♀️#praise .

Tofo Beach turned me into human jello almost instantly. I spent hours just chilling around the bungalows playing guitar, drinking local rum, and listening to the choir in the church over the fence. .
.
The whole vibe here was so insanely relaxing, I found it hard to get stressed out about anything (despite having a whole bunch of work I should be doing).
.
.
If you're looking for a place to switch off for awhile, I highly recommend taking a trip here. Note: guitar and rum may not be not included. .

One of our last Tofo pictures, the eve before we left.  Appropriate that it’s a beautiful sunset looking out over the fields of never-ending green. 🌱
.
.
.
We were sad to go, but knew it was time to leave.  If we had stayed any longer than the 2 weeks that we did - we would probably have never left 🙈 1. Because it’s a challenge and a long drive to come and go and 2. Because the life that you can live here is just so simple and beautiful it traps you in a way to where you feel like you’re hidden from the outside world completely. .
.
.
I’ve actually had quite a few comments and messages about this beautiful place and Mozambique in general - so ill be posting an article soon on traveltartare.com with details on how to find Tofo and what to expect, where to stay, etc. .
.
BUT, Comment: 🌺 if you’re interested in learning more and tell me what questions you have so I can include everything! This will also get my butt into gear if quite a few of you guys are eager to know! If not I’ll probably take my time 😇

Piri Piri Sauce ☄️💥🔥
.
.
.
Now how could I get away with talking about Mozambique without mentioning piri piri sauce?  I couldn’t!  This stuff is BOMB! Spicy and just like A1 -we put that shit on EVERYTHING! .
.
.
Both of these meals were homemade by yours truly (Mars & Andy) and we felt like we were dining as if we were royalty it was so good - bread fresh baked from the market ( see last foodie photo on our profile @traveltartare ), meat expertly cut from the butcher down the road, and even the sauce made in Tofo by a local - I couldn’t believe it! Such a small but thriving community full of choices and everyone doing what they love while contributing. 💕

All went well with the dive this morning except one thing: a wave took my sunglasses. So now we're marching through the streets of Tofo Beach and ready to make a deal.

If you've ever had to buy a tourist item in a developing country, you know that you have to have MAD barter skills, which I do not. Like, at ALL. We had a kid offer to sell us a coconut for the equivalent of $16 US, so I wasn’t excited about haggling for the sunglasses.

Luckily, @dwn2marsgirl was there to keep me from bankrupting myself over a pair of shades (they originally quoted the equivalent of $40 USD... I got them down to $10 but really it should have been $2...). That's 1 pair down this trip, let's see how many more I lose...

I don’t think I have ever met ANYONE who can resist fresh baked bread, especially when it’s crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside 🥐🍞🥖 just like this Mozambican staple: Paõzinho (or loving referred to by its nickname: Paõ)
.
.

“Paõ is a Portuguese-style bread roll. From the busiest cities to the most remote villages, it is a staple in Mozambique.  The bakers are taught the art of crafting the perfect roll from a very young age. This is definitely not your typical, stodgy supermarket roll. Baked in wood-fired ovens and dusted with just the right amount of flour, paõ is impossibly light and fluffy. It’s also cheap, filling and addictively delicious”. Description credit: @tripsavvy .

We used these rolls a ton during our 2 week stay in Tofo.. keep an eye out for our next foodie photo to see our favorite thing to make with these...

I don’t think I have ever met ANYONE who can resist fresh baked bread, especially when it’s crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside 🥐🍞🥖 just like this Mozambican staple: Paõzinho (or loving referred to by its nickname: Paõ) . . . “Paõ is a Portuguese-style bread roll.

Working Remotely while I travel around the world for a year has been... a journey in and of itself. .
.
.
People see you traveling to exotic places for more than a week at a time, and they instantly start making assumptions about your money situation.
.
.
The truth is: I put in serious hours almost every day. Freelance designing, writing, and whatever else I can get my hands on that is suitable for remote work. $20 here, $40 there.. and so on.
.
.
The funny thing is that most travelers are doing this, but only tend to focus on the good stuff when sharing with their followers. To me, however, working for myself is "the good stuff."
.
.
It ain't easy, but the hammock beats the cubicle every time in my book 😆

This was our walk to our “home away from home” for 2 weeks in Mozambique.  We were staying at a calm and quiet little oasis called, “La La Land” hidden behind the palms and just a sand dune away from the ocean waves.
.
.
.
My favorite part of staying there was the walk to and from the little beach town of Tofo.  You could either walk via the beach or through the back road that winds along next to the local villages and the church. .
.
.
We’d see little kids heading to school, families walking to church, men tending to their crops & livestock, and women cooking or attending to their home.
.
.
.
It was peaceful, balancing, and so cool to be a brief part of their world - it felt especially magical when they would smile and wave to us as we walked by, just like we were a part of their community, even if just for a little while! .

THE FOOD in Tofo is amazing. Fresh is no understatement and the variety is endless: seafood, sushi, curries, local delicacies, pizzas, meats on a hot rock, etc.
.
.
.
But the ultimate for me was a fresh caught lobster 😆 by a local fisherman. .
.
.
It took ages to find someone with a fair price AND good product because many of the fisherman and market vendors don’t understand 1. How to get solid repeat business by pricing fairly and 2. When it isn’t appropriate to catch certain things
.
.
.
Take a lobster for example, these two are fine to catch because they are mature enough (you can tell by the length of the tail). But, so many fisherman kept catching young lobsters that were teeny tiny and still reproducing, thus hurting the population and in the long term, their businesses (plus, no one wants a tiny lobster?!)

This is why we chose to support this guy! .

Before we left NC for our around the world journey, I was one dive away from getting my Advanced Certification - and damned if it didn't get rained out the morning of.

Today I'm knocking my deep dive out of the way here in Tofo Beach, Mozambique instead.  This place is home to some amazing wildlife, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Manta Rays and sharks...

Bucketlist check: swimming with wild whale sharks off the coast of Africa ✅
.
.
.
Just one of the few water sports on offer in this little coastal town in Mozambique 🇲🇿 .
.
.
Don’t be fooled though, this shot was quite hard to get - these giants actually get spooked quite easily and when they are, it’s down down down they go, so fast you might not be able to blink!  If you’re cautious, respectful, and as quiet as possible they might just become a bit curious and allow you to join them for a swim 🙃

Along with some of the best restaurants, this small beach town has a cute little market right in the center offering fresh fruits and veggies.  We actually got the biggest avocado I’ve ever seen here! .
.
.
It also just so happens to be one of the places that Mars avoided when we first got there as it was so overwhelming.  The competition between shops is fierce and each “shop” owner stands by their produce calling out to the tourists ALL at the same time - it can get a little difficult to even remember what you need to buy.
.
.
.
We tried to make it as fair as possible and buy from different people each time and as time went on they got to know us and we began to be treated almost like locals. It’s just one of those things that not many travelers talk about but happens all the time, especially in poorer countries. .

This little beach town in eastern Mozambique is so tiny, secluded, and perfect, I'm reluctant to even tell you its name.
.
.
Still, secrets can't stay secret forever - and Tofo Beach is quickly growing into a legitimate tourist destination. With humpback whales on the horizon and Whale Sharks and Manta Ray's on its reefs, its a great place to dive, swim, and snorkel.
.
.
Its beaches are a blast as well, with large tidal pools forming daily. The perfect place to relax before snagging a beer and some amazing curry or - wait for it - sushi. .

As I mentioned in one of my Kruger safari posts - I wanted to see and do it all (safari tour, self drive safari, and an airbnb in an animal reserve), especially because I love WILD animals and being in nature with them (respectfully) in THEIR environment where they are comfortable, happy, and supposed to be.
.
.
.
Growing up, you could find me and my parents huddled by the TV watching nature & wildlife documentaries on discovery channel and animal planet. To witness these places IN PERSON with the animals that I grew up appreciating and respecting is one of the ways traveling can become absolutely magical. ✨
.
.
.
This photo was taken on our 2nd African wildlife/safari experience (out of 3: 1. Kruger Safari Tour, 2. Kruger Airbnb and 3. Namibian Self-Drive in Etosha National Park) - an airbnb just outside Kruger National Park called Mfubu lodge. At $70 a night, we got to wake up with the birds, hang with the monkeys in the afternoon, watch the kudu, impala, waterbuck, and elephant drink from the river in the evenings, battle with the baboons over dinner, and sleep while the hippos munched the grass below us at night. .
.
.
We were on THEIR turf so we were always careful, quiet, and respectful.  I highly recommend doing this along with any safari experience (self drive or on a tour) as you get to unwind in a whole different way. .
.
.
You can find lodges like this with a range of amenities and wildlife viewing all around Kruger going from $40 - $4,000+ a night (depending on the season). Most recommend a rental car or you can pay for a transfer like we did through a safari company. .
.
.
Which of the 3 wildlife/safari experiences do you think you’d enjoy the most?

A giraffe in front of the Swaziland 🇸🇿 horizon, with Kruger National Park all around us 🌞= Perfect!
.

Let’s talk about how to pick a safari/tour package because there ARE more options out there than private game reserves that charge $600+ a night.  They charge that because they can, people WILL pay it and people DO.
.
.
.
The hard choices don’t stop there though, I’m writing an article on how to pick the perfect safari experience for you: renting a car vs tour package vs staying at an airbnb within the park because we did ALL 3 🙉!!! .
.
I got greedy and wanted to experience it all 😇 but now I know my favorite option and want to help you find you’re ideal experience too (and one that fits your budget $$$)- I’ll reveal it soon on traveltartare.com and announce it here and on my stories :) .

For now,  here’s me posing with one of the coolest creatures on earth: The ever so chill, giraffe 🦒 ☝🏼

Here we go!!! On to Kruger National Park in South Africa (another huge bucketlist tick for me!) where I not only saw the Big 5 of Africa (leopard, lion, rhino, elephant, and buffalo), but tons of incredible wildlife!
.
.
Not so fun fact, the big 5 were named as such because American hunters would compete to kill these 5 as they were hardest to find and hardest to kill (they put up a mean fight when threatened or attacked).
.
.
.
Better news, there are anti poaching units circling the parks in trucks and helicopters everyday to try and stop this shameful hobby - of course some are corrupt but it’s getting better with more education and more tourists coming to appreciate them and showing the government that we want to see them ALIVE and in their NATURAL HABITAT. There’s nothing like experiencing wildlife quite like you do in Kruger. 🦁

Last Tofo pic! Appropriate that it’s a beautiful sunset looking out over the fields of never-ending green. 🌱
.
.
.
We were sad to go, but knew it was time to leave.  If we had stayed any longer than the 2 weeks that we did - we would probably have never left 🙈 1. Because it’s a challenge and a long drive to come and go and 2. Because the life that you can live here is just so simple and beautiful it traps you in a way to where you feel like you’re hidden from the outside world completely. .
.
.
I’ve actually had quite a few comments and messages about this beautiful place and Mozambique in general - so ill be posting an article soon on traveltartare.com with details on how to find Tofo and what to expect, where to stay, etc. .
.
BUT, Comment: 🌺 if you’re interested in learning more and tell me what questions you have so I can include everything! This will also get my butt into gear if quite a few of you guys are eager to know! If not I’ll probably take my time 😇

Amman, Jordan 🇯🇴 .
.
.
Ok, honestly tell me... who knew this historic site was in Amman?? I sure didn’t - I just heard Petra, Petra, Petra (which was amazing) but people failed to mention the Amman Citadel on top of a huge hill with not only this temple of Hercules and a mosque but also the VIEWS! Look at Amman in the background: beautiful! .
.
.
When you book your trip to Jordan, don’t forget Amman 😉 you have to fly in and out of here anyways - why not stop for a couple nights?  This site is included in the Jordan Pass which bundles together entrance fees to tons of sights like this one around Jordan as well as visit(s) to Petra and your visa to get into the country! .
.
google: Jordan pass and don’t forget to watch our Jordan video (link in bio)!

Look at Amman in the background: beautiful! . . . When you book your trip to Jordan, don’t forget Amman 😉 you have to fly in and out of here anyways - why not stop for a couple nights? This site is included in the Jordan Pass which bundles together entrance fees to tons of sights like this one around Jordan as well as visit(s) to Petra and your visa to get into the country! . . google: Jordan pass and don’t forget to watch our Jordan video (link in bio)! . . . . . #travelblogger  #travelphotography  #traveltartare  #instagood  #travelingaroundtheworld  #explore  #adventure  #wanderlust  #traveler  #traveling  #visitjordan  #gopro  #hike  #hiking  #epic  #jordan  #asia  #viewpoint  #scenic  #views  #middleeast  #bucketlist  #ammancitadel  #citadel  #ammanjordan  #jordanpass 
When you finally take an acceptable beach pic in a bikini (with your newly found local Tofo guard dog) after feeling so glutinous because you ate nothing but fresh steaks, pork belly, greek salads, seafood, peri peri sauces, and warm bread with butter for a week (without burning any calories except for the 1 mile walk to town you do every day) ...and then you realize your bikini bottoms are inside out 🤦🏻‍♀️😂
.
.
.
But seriously, just wait until we start posting photos of some of the food we ate in Mozambique on @traveltartare .
.
.
P.S. did you notice there’s no one else on the beach?? No matter what time of year or time of day - you can easily find your own private stretch to enjoy.  I definitely recommend going at low tide as Little Rock pools form in random spots.  If you want to be more social, a larger rock pool also forms right in front of town!  Talk about perfect right? .

Cheers to Amman for having a killer food and bev (f&b) scene!  Being in the industry ourselves and being away from our favorite bars and foodie spots at home, it was a nice and welcomed treat while traveling through the Middle East!  We even had our BEST American pub food experience in Amman.  We didn’t take any photos because we ate it so fast - that’s how good and long awaited it was. .
.
.
The best part (for my budget savvy mind) was that a lot of bars on Rainbow Street (and all around Amman) had happy hour deals several days a week, which was actually much needed as Jordan’s currency is stronger than the British pound 🤑🍺🍸 Did you know that??

This is literally what I did 50% of the time I was in Tofo, Mozambique. I read this Lonely Planet: Southern Africa & a Snakes of Africa book 🤣 just to psych myself out...
.
.
.
Tofo is literally a haven for readers, scuba divers, beach and seafood lovers, and relaxation.  Which is harder than it looks.  We asked our host to give us work a couple of times (gardening or something) because 2 weeks of trying to relax was so hard for us - NOT KIDDING. .
.
.
Anyone else a workaholic?? 😪 #sadbuttrue ...yes, I am referencing Metallica on this one 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼

Contrary to what many of you think, this trip has not been all cocktails and awesome adventures. In reality, a multi-destination itinerary like this is more about eating ramen (not the good kind) and sleeping on overnight buses to save a nights stay at a BnB.
.
.
So - when I do get a chance to snag a scotch on a rooftop bar, it makes it taste that much better. And while you may not think of Amman, Jordan as the ideal place to catch a drink, I'm here to report that this city has a banging happy hour, and some damn fine food to boot.

It took me 2 weeks to get a lobster at a fair price 🤔 - now THAT is “Africa time” for you. .
.
.
So many vendors in Tofo like to overcharge tourists, especially in slow season, because they will make the money they need quicker by overcharging but in the process of these bad business practices they lose repeat local customers as they often don’t get a fair price either.  For example, they quoted @ahenryd $40 for a pair of cheap sunglasses. We ended up haggling down to $10 and (still too high but they are fierce bargainers) we’re glad we did as they broke in 3 weeks.
.
.
.
Anyways, we finally found a local fisherman who was selling seafood to our favorite restaurant while we were having dinner and he offered us a reasonable price - 300 mets ($5) per kg. Our lobster came out to a total of 450 mets! I’ll take it. 🦀🦀🦀 (no lobster emoji...)

Dead Sea Day Trip!  You definitely cannot go to Jordan without visiting The Dead Sea.  It’s only 10 JD for a round trip ticket and the small, comfy Jett bus will take you to any resort or public access beach you’d like - just tell the driver! .
.
.
While the bus trip is relatively inexpensive, the resorts and public access fees are a bit pricey ranging from 30-60 JD per person for just a day pass (keep in mind the JD is much stronger than our USD, the Euro, and even the British Pound so it’s more costly than it looks), you can also get a buffet lunch included. .
.
.
We’ll be posting about the special healing powers of the mud as well as us floating soon! .

May I introduce you to: My Big, Sassy, Desert Wind Blown Hair 🌬🌵😜
.
.
.
I originally took a blow dryer and hair straightener with me on this trip (I specifically bought both because they were dual voltage.. the straightener even turns into a curling iron!) .
.
Truth be told though... I sent the hair dryer back home 2 months into our 1 year trip and I haven’t even used the straightener yet.  Your priorities totally shift when you start living out of a backpack and are up against crazy different weather patterns and humidity levels having changed countries every week or so 😆
.
.
.
Ladies, let those locks be freeeeeee! I have never loved my hair more than I do now (I’ve come a long way - I used to cry over having curls)! 💕 P.S. most hostels and Airbnb’s have hair dryers now any way for major crisis’🤞🏼
.
.
.
P.S.S. See more of my hair (😂) and JORDAN 🇯🇴 in our newest YouTube video!!!! Link in bio, click here: @traveltartare .

Chilling in front of the the area used to simulate Mars in the movie "The Martian."

Wadi Rum is so unique looking and "otherworldly," it's been used in a bunch of films over the years. From "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Rogue One" to "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (though they don't like to mention that one)
.

Glad to see that Michael Bay resisted the urge to blow this whole place up.

Wadi Rum is endless fun if you like to hike, climb, or just explore. The rock formations and sand dunes are really awe inspiring, and the entire area is  completely silent but for the occasional wind rushing though the rocks.
.
.
I woke up every morning to a hot cup of tea, then looked around the valley and asked myself "hey, could I climb that?"
.
.
The answer is apparently yes. Yes I could. .

Hiking inside Petra to the most famous site: The Treasury.  Contrary to popular belief, you do actually need a guide to do this hike because at certain points (depending on where you start from) it gets super steep and dangerous.  We got an awesome guide that showed us the way, joined us for tea, and answered all of our questions. .
.
.
We found little desert oasis like this one and just had to get a photo as most photos I see of Petra is just of the big ticket items, not the journey through, and it can be just as beautiful! .

Living the life of budget savvy luxury here in Dubai 💁🏻‍♀️🤑
.
.
Guess how long I spent finding a hotel for UNDER $70 USD a night with a city skyline of Dubai, rooftop pool, excellent service, that was also convenient to the airport, and most importantly well priced?  Probably somewhere around 6-8 hours over a 2 week time period. 😲
.
.
But, if I teach you anything, please let it be this:  nothing in life is free.  What you don’t spend in $$ you spend in time or comfort or convenience (or the other ways around). So while I saved lots of money on this hotel room during our 22 hour Dubai layover I, instead, spent those long hours and time doing repetitive searches while I could have been shopping at a Spice Market in Egypt (or something)... those kinds of choices all depend on the person and their travel style! .
.
.
I even compared this room to the sleep pods/rooms at the airport and for 2 adults it was still cheaper (and better) to book here - even when adding in a taxi ride to and from! .
.
Basically, I LOVE this hotel, the views, the pool (I’ll show you that next), and this robe (obsessed!) and all my hard work paid off because not only was it a luxurious budget style experience but we got upgraded to a suite upon arrival and had the best Indian food I’ve ever had in my LIFE right down the road 👑
.
.
.
OH! And not to mention even with the hotel and the desert tour we took, this flight scenario was STILL cheaper than a more direct option 💪🏼 (again, paid for it instead with exhaustion - by the time we got to Kenya for our last leg to Mozambique, we were pretty exhausted and ready for a full night sleep)
.
.

I have to get real here for a moment:

There seems to be a conspiracy among people who supply various mounts (horses, camels, donkeys) to ALWAYS give me the shortest one possible, leaving @dwn2marsgirl towering over me in photos.

I'm no chauvinist, but this is beginning to get on my nerves. I demand taller transportation!

Next level off-roading through the most out-of-this-world desert you’ve ever seen: Wadi Rum, Jordan 🇯🇴 💪🏼
.
.
.
Want to know what else is next level??? MY FIRST VIDEO.  It will absolutely positively give you all the feels while simultaneously making you fall in love with Jordan like we have.  I am so excited about this and it took me 6 hours to upload to Youtube since we’re in Mozambique and have limited WiFi (I’ve also rewatched it more than 20 times like a crazy person), but I hope that you take the 4 minutes to watch it 🤩 because if not I’ll know... jk just please watch it 🙏🏼

This is why you do the hike to The Monastary! Hardly anyone around and amazing views of canyons, valleys, and the site itself.
.
.
As Mars mentioned, it is quite an exhausting walk to get up here, especially in heat that can reach 104 F. While we always recommend walking, there are options to take donkeys up (for a price), which must be an adventure in itself.
.
.
The site is quite similar in design to The Treasury, but has been worn by sand and wind since the 5th century, making it a completely unique site.

The uphill, rocky hike up to The Monestary at Petra guarantees you views like this 🙌🏼 ALL THE WAY UP!
.
.
.
You need water, a packed lunch, sunscreen, and sheer will, but after that, the rest in the bag.  If you forgot water or food - don’t worry there are vendors around every corner wanting to sell you something (even when you’re completely out of breath 🙈)
.
.
.
This was something that we had to do as so many tourists walk down the long path into Petra, they see The Treasury, and then turn around.  Not us and not you once you see the photos to follow...

Jordan, my 23rd country and the country that may have surprised me the most since I didn’t know much about it to begin with... kind people, expensive (especially compared to the rest of the Middle East), clean, and the first country we’ve been to on our around the world journey that actually had ranch dressing in the grocery store 😲😲😲 it’s a big deal, ok? .
.
.
Anyways, the Amman Citadel is probably the top thing to see here.  Not just because of the history, but because you get the best views of the city right behind it.  Really allowing past and present to intertwine in a unique way. .
.
.
Just sitting here trying to get the best angle for photos, I really felt so special being there in that moment. Taking this journey, seeing all these places, and meeting different people.  It’s incredibly easy to get used to it all and take it for granted, especially when this is my life for a year. .

What makes Petra so cool is the fact that the entire city is literally one big carving. But while famous spots like The Treasury and The Monastary are amazing reliefs (carved out of the rock not into it), the houses are more like detailed, multi-room tunnels.
.
.
This means that, unless you have a hammer and chisel or astounding hulk strength, you're free to explore everything as much as you want without fear of damaging  the site.
.
.
This is a good idea, because you do NOT want to get on UNESCO's bad side.

The walk to the Petra Monastary has got to be some sort of international prank. You'll hear people talk about how it's 900 stairs, but no one tells you those stairs are almost straight up a winding path carved out of slippery stone.
.
.
So while we scoffed at a mere "900 stairs" and decided to hoof it, most other people relied on the hooves of donkeys and horses to get to the top in minutes while we took nearly an hour.
.
.
All's well that ends well, however. The Monastary is breathtaking (photos to come) and the hike up is full of views like this. Plus, donkeys are jerks (yeah, I said it).

Imagine hiking for an hour through canyons of pure red rock and carved stone to finally happen upon this beauty 📸 Awe struck over our second world wonder on our around the world trip! .
.
.
If you want to get these views it will cost you as getting up and down some areas of the hike are steep and dangerous so it’s required to have a guide. .
.
You can either ask your accommodations for a recommendation, get a guide at the visitors center, or take up one of the local freelance guides offers down below (there’s several always at the main entrance right in front of The Treasury that’s pictured here - prices range depending on group size and the guide.  We paid 25 JD for 2 of us for a 3 hour hike after our awesome airbnb host haggled down from 50 JD!)

Welcome to Life on Mars! Not really “planet mars”, but close enough and way cheaper to get to 😉
.
.
.
We had plenty of desert time scheduled into our around the world trip - but people kept insisting that we visit Jordan’s Wadi Rum Desert and I can’t say we’re disappointed! 🌵
.
.
.
This shot right here is just feet away from where they shot the movie “The Martian” if we had been allowed to bring alcohol into camp I might have reenacted some of it, alas, it’s still the Middle East - so we just stuck to hot tea ☕️ 😂

#sundayfunday : Camels are probably some of the weirdest looking animals... but they’re also somehow so cute.

Anyways, we’re on our way to an epic sunset spot in the middle of the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan.  This desert is where they filmed the movie: “The Martian” because well... it looks likes MARS! Mars on Mars ;) it fits! I’ll show you more of this epic terrain in my next photo...

Petra is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive feats of human engineering ever. Even after spending the previous day at the Pyramids (2 world wonders in 2 days!), Petra still left me completely floored.
.
.
Contrary to popular belief, Petra is the name of the city, not the ruin I'm standing in front of here. This is known as "The Treasury," and it has become the official "face" of the city over the years.
.
.
If you want to see the whole city (including the less famous version of The Treasury that's a few thousand feet up a mountain), expect to walk at least 10 miles in a single day - or shell out some cash for a donkey ride.

After enjoying a delicious packed lunch and a 1.5 hour hike through rocky cliffs - we did a little photo shoot through the opening of a cave that faces The Monastery inside Petra!! .
.
.
I have a really good eye for framing photos and finding interesting angles and viewpoints for unique shots - it’s something I really enjoy doing.  I sometimes will work with one angle for a while and still learn new ways to frame it even better.  Photography is definitely one of those things that you get better at over time and with plenty of practice while getting used to your cameras capabilities (for example with GoPro I like to be super close to the subject and you have to be super careful where you put your fingers when you’re in wide frame mode because it really captures everything)! Other times, I’ll feel like I didn’t get the best angle, walk away, turn around for one last glance at my subject and BAM I see the perfect shot 😂
.
.
.
THIS particular shot, I can’t take all the credit for, this shot was actually all @ahenryd ‘s idea + I framed it.  How’s that for teamwork? How do you guys think it turned out??

Hiking through Petra, seeing The Great Pyramid of Giza, surviving 48 hour travel days, navigating different cultures and social norms, floating in the Dead Sea... it truly is amazing to see where this life takes you... if you let it! .

Don’t be distracted or deterred or jealous of those people on Instagram with the perfect bodies, the perfect photos, and the dream life - there’s so much more behind photos that we sometimes never see.  Live what you know to be true!  I know this is easier said then done, I have trouble with it everyday.  But I always try to tell myself to compete with myself
rather than against anyone else.  Let’s hope that works eventually.  #empowereachother #doyou

In a hot air balloon, every photo is an "extreme close up." So while I'm sure you'd rather see the Nile River and the sunrise, you're going to have to deal with my ugly mug taking up most of the shot.
.
.
Like our sandstorm ordeal, Mother Nature almost kept us from taking this flight. Luckily, the winds eventually died down and we got a good 45 minutes or so of air time over Luxor Temple and The Valley of the Kings.

Petra, Petra read all about it 📜✔️✨
.
.
.
What exactly are you reading?? All about my 3rd World Wonder: Petra! A huge complex of hand carved cave homes and giant, detailed rock buildings.  It was everything and MORE than what I had imagined.
.
.
.
I was super intimidated at first about going into this complex and exploring, especially after all the blogs I read about the heat, the constant pushy vendors, and the long hikes between sites - but this was an absolute breeze to explore.  There was plenty of shade if you just looked, the vendors were super polite, and the hikes were so gorgeous that the time seemed to just pass me by! .

Petra, Petra read all about it 📜✔️✨ . . . What exactly are you reading?? All about my 3rd World Wonder: Petra! A huge complex of hand carved cave homes and giant, detailed rock buildings. It was everything and MORE than what I had imagined. . . . I was super intimidated at first about going into this complex and exploring, especially after all the blogs I read about the heat, the constant pushy vendors, and the long hikes between sites - but this was an absolute breeze to explore. There was plenty of shade if you just looked, the vendors were super polite, and the hikes were so gorgeous that the time seemed to just pass me by! . . .

Was really lucky to see the Temple of Luxor at night - all lit up and surrounded by happy locals enjoying their Saturday evening.
.
.
However, the real treat came the next day, when we were able to take a hot air balloon ride over the city, which revealed the Temple's unique design - that of a human being, with the sanctuary as the head.

Finally got to do my #1 bucketlist activity (riding in a hot air balloon) in the country that has had the top spot on my bucketlist since I was a kid (Egypt!!). It can’t get any better than this 💕
.
.
.
Egypt’s sandstorm and winds were testing my perseverance  and determination during our travels in this beautiful country - sometimes luck was on our side and sometimes we just had to gamble a bit and take our chances to get through a sandstorm, for example. Either way, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.  Especially when the only place left to go is UP 🎈🌞

I've heard non-divers hate diving photos? Is that true? Anyways, just to be safe, I'll try to keep them to a minimum. .
.
This is a huge reef near the Sinai Peninsula, just east of Hurghada, Egypt in the Red Sea. It was literally teeming with fish, including Parrot Fish, a Lionfish, and two adorable Clown Fish. Sadly, no sharks, but we did have two long, relaxing dives on a beautiful day.
.
.
Would love to get back here again and see what else the Red Sea has to offer.

The Temple at Karnak is usually the "grand finale" of a good North and South Tour of Egypt - and with good reason.
.
.
This is one of the largest ancient Temple complexes in the world, and you need a few hours to really do it right. .
.
I have literally a hundred photos of me here (many of which include the famous hypostyle hall, with its 134 columns), but I just really liked the symmetry on this one. .

We almost didn't make it to the famous Temple of Abu Simbel. The day before, southern Egypt got hit by a massive sand storm and the Government closed the roads south (Abu Simbel is right on the Sudan border).
.
.
I'd never seen anything like this storm, though. There was so much dust in the air, you could barely see the sun, and it would sting your lungs when you spent more than a few minutes outside. .
. 
The storm was supposed to last 3 days, but our AWESOME tour company (@ladyegypttours) switched our whole itinerary to see if it cleared. It did so the next day. We left Aswan at 3 am and got to Abu Simbel early enough to take photos like this, completely uninhibited by tourists.

Some of the modern day guardians of ancient Egypt 🇪🇬✨💪🏼
.
.
They purposefully might walk into your photos (they think tourists like this or sometimes they just want their face to be immortalized in your pictures)... or you might purposefully walk through their day. .
.
Either way, be warm and kind, smile, and use them if their willing - locals photobombing is the best! 🙌🏼

The first Temple we saw in southern Egypt was Philae, which - aside from being very well preserved - sits on a small island in the center of a beautiful lake.
.
.
This Temple (along with Edfu, Abu Simbel, and Kom Ombo) is the reason why you MUST get to Aswan in Southern Egypt. It's a completely different culture and feel from Cairo, and archeologists are literally still digging up new Temples and Tombs every day. .
.
Now get your butts out there and start exploring. 🚀

The Pyramids are by far the most impressive sight I've seen on this trip (so far). I was always really into the Egyptian mythos - reading book after book on the subject - so visiting Giza was a big bucket list item for me.
.
.
I will say, that I liked the area down the road from the main sight a bit better than being up close. Less tourists, less vendors, and a much more epic view. .
.
Oh, and they had better camels too. So don't skip the camel ride - it's always worth it. .

Dreams do come true - but only if you work for it 💪🏼

It took a ton of will power, tons of working overtime, and patience to get here (📍Egypt) and to be on this trip around the world for a year 🌍 Who knows what’s next..
.
.
Regardless, thanks for being right here with me 👋🏼🙏🏼

Now, tell me... what’s your dream? .

SOLD! 10 days until the trip and Lucy is on to her next home for the last 10 years of her life 🚙☀️💛
.
.
I am forever grateful for all of the safe and memorable journeys that were made possible because of this car (and my loving parents who gifted her to me when I was in college✨) .
.
She’s been off roading on mountain paths, riden through college campuses, been on long road trips and short beach trips, been on journeys with a full load of friends in the back seat on the way to a music festival and with just a boyfriend in the front headed for Canada 🌊😎
