DRIVE TO AMMAN - DAY 13 - FINAL DAY

We left Petra and drove up the King’s Highway before merging on the Desert Highway to make our trip north to Amman, the capital of Jordan and prepare for the transfer to the Queen Alia International Airport. The highways followed the oldest continually used trading route in the world. Some interesting sites were seen along the route, but the overwhelming vistas were desert. About half way through the ride, we took a pit stop at the MidWay Castle, a restaurant and souvenir shop. As we approached Amman, our tour guide Madji explained quite a bit about Jordan’s role in the Mid-East political, economic and geographic situations, both currently and historically. Tour Director Matt, the best ever, commented on the Tauck experience and summarized the events of our two weeks together.

It was a great experience with fantastic travel companions that exceeded my high expectations. Tauck is to be commended for their choice of Matt and the itinerary. He made everything function smoothly. I leave for the airport at 10:30 pm and a flight home beginning at 1:30 am Jordan time via Paris and Atlanta to Sarasota, arriving there at 4:14
