Jordan: A Treasury

a trip by Anne
From: October 12th 2013
Until: October 23rd 2013

A year ago, I decide to watch a travel program of the Dutch old-politics and old-Olympic athlete Erica Terpstra, called "Erica op Reis". In of of these Episodes she visited Jordan. I did not know a lot about Jordan; but when I saw it I really was quite enthusiast. The souks, the nature, the people. And then, she visited Petra. With horses, they entered the Siq, a small canyon with different corners. Behind the corner, there it was. The Treasury, a huge building was carved out a red/rose mountain. I felt in love, and I knew from that moment that I should visit Jordan, as soon as possible. One year later, it finally was time to pack my backs and meet the Wonders of the 1001-Arabic Nights.
