I’m here in Jordan

P1040438P1040573After a long and somewhat tedious flight which did not engender much sleep, I arrived in Dubai, met the group and travelled to Amman, met our guide and transport and headed off into the desert of Jordan. What a different world this is! Yesterday we travelled through Madaba to reach our destination – Petra. This place is truly amazing. Words just do not describe the place, so I’ll need to reflect a bit more before I attempt to interpret the experience. So for now I’ll stick to the purely tourist highlights – the ride on the donkey, and the ride on the horse – which was free, but a hefty tip was expected (and asked for!)
We gathered before dinner to reflect on our experience and insights. This will be a spectacular trip – but an exhausting one if today was anything to go by!

I'm a pilgrim, a traveller, a tourist! I'm on a journey of life, and my life is like a rich and varied garden, with new growth, blooms and even some weeds which I keep trying to eradicate! I'd like people to read my blog and feel positive about life and the earth we share. The world is a place of good news stories and experiences we can share.
