And I am off to Jordan!
With the changing angles of the sun, the desert displays dramatic rose-red colors in the sand. For some moments I am blinded. But once I am able to regain my clear sight, I spot him in the distance. He is sitting quietly with what appears to be his Grandfather. He never moves. I am mesmerized that a child this age can sit quietly still for such a long time.
Then the sound begins to fill the air and I finally understand why he is quiet and still. The sound is the playing of the Rabab with a bow, a local instrument made from goat skin.
This desert boasts extraordinary scenes unlike any other place on earth.
That moment when you get the final itinerary and ticket and you know everything is a go! That’s the moment I had this morning with my cup of joe. Barely awake, yet in my dimly lit room, I knew this was it!
The itinerary I was waiting for:
Laurence of Arabia Tour
Floating in the Dead Sea
a Biosphere Reserve
Even Beer Tasting
And so with that, I am off to explore the country of Jordan. Wish me luck!
Disclosure: I have been invited by the Jordan Tourism Board to visit their country, but I can tell you from my past experiences, it is one amazing country! #GoJordan
Here is the #GoJordan team going with me:
