Our next adventure was an overnight stay at Wadi Rum In a stunning desert. We stayed in a Bedouin style camp. They are dotted everywhere including one that has pods looking like round space ships. The film , The Martian, was filmed at Wadi Rum.
Our tents had an ensuite and tiled floors which made them very comfortable. Also wifi. We had a ride in jeeps out to the sand dunes to see a number of ancient carved inscriptions and pictures. We then went to see the carvings paying tribute to Lawrence and King Abdullah. We waited then for the sun to set before getting on our camels to ride back to camp.Lots of laughter involved.
We had a lovely dinner of lamb which was cooked in a pit in the ground. Unfortunately the weather changed and throughout the night the tent flapped from the wind outside. In the morning it was cold with a slight bit of rain but we hopp3d in the Jeep and met our coach to head for Aqaba by the sea.
