Southbound: Visual Tales from The Jordan Trail
Exploration has the power to allow us to see and appreciate the extraordinary in this world. And to me that rings true every time I immerse myself within the twisting wadis spread out across The @jordan.trail , specially as you start heading south from Dana towards Petra and then Wadi Rum and Aqaba. A winding path full of magnificent natural beauty that is waiting to be explored. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

It was un-planned trip when i decided to spend a night in wadi rum, which finally suprised me with an unforgetable different experience.
Wadi Rum is a protected desert reserve in the southern part of Jordan, often called the Valley of the Moon, is known for its red-pink sands, stunning natural arches and mountains, and prehistoric rock engravings.
Just over a year ago, I went on my VERY FIRST overseas trip. One of the places I went to was Jordan, which is a country not many people would pick for their first adventure. But I was determined to go, despite a lot of my friends and colleagues saying I'd be blown up or sold into white slavery. I saw the most amazing landscapes, visited sites which have been there for thousands of years, rode a donkey up a narrow staircase to 2657 feet above sea level, "glamped" in the desert, SWAM in the desert, Jeeped in the desert, danced with a police officer on a glass boat in an aqua blue sea, perfected the art of haggling, and ate the most delicious falafel that can never be replicated anywhere else. I also met such awesome people who travelled from all over the world and who, like me, wanted to visit a country that SmartTraveller would've probably advised them to reconsider. Back in Melbourne a year later, I'm currently having a major case of travel bug FOMO. I crave the off-the-beat, exciting and incredible adventure that I experienced 365 days ago. At least I can console myself with the knowledge that I can go back again and make it a longer trip. (N.B. If this post doesn't make you put Jordan on the top of your travel bucket list, then there's something wrong with you!)
Our second and last minute attempt to do #WadiRum in #jordanian site was succesful (this time we had cash 💴 - a tip to always carry cash in Jordan as not a lot of places accept cards). We did a #jeeptour through the #desert and it was the last time @isabellecgrace ‘s 🧢 was seen (I’m sorry 🙈). Flew off right before I asked @vinncu why she doesn’t want to put her glasses on 😂. Truly amaZing site not to be missed when #visitingjordan

El desierto del Wadi Rum fue una experiencia única para nosotros, poder pasar dos noches en el que dicen que es uno de los desiertos más espectaculares del mundo (ahí no opino porque no conozco ningún otro) fue algo inolvidable, dos días sin cobertura, tomando té y charlando con los beduinos, disfrutando de esos paisajes únicos... sin duda una de las mejores experiencias de las muchas que vivimos en Jordania. 🏜🐪
