We were not supposed to travel to Jordan. However, 12 hours after we were stranded in Larnaca, Cyprus by a bankrupt airline (that’s a whole later blog post) we landed in the Jordanian capital of Amman.

Jordan is located in the crossroads of the Middle East as it borders Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Saudia Arabia.

This all leads to the idea that perhaps travel in Jordan is not such a great idea. It’s not in a part of the world known for its stability and peacefulness.

Those ideas of doubt do not last long though in Jordan. Upon meeting the first Jordanian they’ll dispell this with the one English sentence the entire country knows.

“Welcome to Jordan.”

In our one week trip, we found earth shattering landscapes, ancient history, delicious food, exciting experiences, and hospitable locals. Jordan, by all means, is a total package for tourists and deserves a place on every traveler’s bucket list.

If you love to travel for adventure, history, beaches or culture Jordan has something for you!
