The magnificent Petra and The Blue Mosque of Amman, The Arabian Desert and Wadi Rum, the stomping grounds of Lawrence of Arabia himself, T.E. Lawrence. The mysterious Dead Sea and Red Sea Coast. These are just some of the images that spring to mind when envisioning the Kingdom of Jordan.

We were invited to sample some of the highlights of Jordan earlier this year and with the 200th anniversary of the Swiss Explorer Ludwig Burckhardt’s Discovery of Petra who introduced it to the Western world, there is no time like the present to see this ancient wonder.

But there is so much more to see and do in Jordan than simply visiting the ancient Nabataean city.

We took part in some amazing adventures from Canyoning in Wadi Mujib to Hiking through the Dana River biosphere reserve. We floated in the Dead Sea and quietly meditated under the stars at the Feynan Eco Lodge where we slept by candle light.

Jordan has something for everyone. From high adventures like taking a hot air balloon over Wadi Rum or sleeping in the Desert having a Real Bedouin Experience to visiting the Kings auto museum. Maybe you can try Smoking Sheesha for the First time or witness the Roman Ruins of Jerash and of course you can’t miss visiting the ancient ruins of Petra.

    I’ve become really interested in visiting Jordan in recent months from all the travel bloggers who have been posting about it. Honestly, I can admit it wasn’t a place high on my radar until recently. Now it’s a top priority :)

    We’ve debated where Jordan should fall in our travel plans for a couple of years now. Thank you for collecting links and directing us to Michael (Go, See, Write). Jordan just made a large leap up our travel list.
