Petra

It’s nearly been a year since I made an epic journey to the Middle East and explored Jordan. It was one of the best trips I have ever taken! After discovering 99 things to do in Amman, I went diving in the Red Sea, I floated in the Dead Sea, I slept under the stars in Wadi Rum and I discovered ancient Roman ruins in Jerash.

My visit to Petra was the icing on the cake.

Maybe it was the movie magic of Indiana Jones or the incredible history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, but Petra proved to be one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been to. Imagining a 312 BC ancient city carved out of a sandstone rock face sounds pretty unbelievable. And unbelievable is just what it was…

Here’s a look at picture perfect Petra through my eyes!
