Journey through Jordan

My journey through Jordan was captured on paper by Lake Erie Lifestyle magazine, July 2016 issue. Petra, Wadi Rum and Jordanian cuisine are all part of the experience. Read the article at Lake Erie Lifestyle’s online version available here:

If You Go to Jordan – Jordan Travel Tips

As I said in the article, 

  • Royal Jordanian offers direct flights from Montreal, Detroit and Chicago (11.5 hours from Chicago.) USA Reservations: 212-949-0050

  • Pack for hot days and cool nights but remember to dress modestly in respect of the Muslim culture. Avoid bare shoulders and legs. Save the shorts and low cut shirts for another vacation.

  • Alcohol is not readily available everywhere. “It is dry all over Jordan, but alcohol-wise, up north is wet,” said Mohammed warning me to buy alcohol at the duty-free store in Amman before our journey turned southward.

  • From this article, you should be able to ascertain that I felt safe at all times in Jordan. I walked Rainbow Street at night with friends; I hiked Petra solo, and I ate all the local food. Jordanians claim their country is the safest in the Middle East, and from my own experience, I can say that I felt more secure there than in many places in the US.

Camel Caravan in Jordan

Trotting across the desert of Wadi Rum on camelback had to be an experience of my lifetime. What a way to end an overnight camping experience with new Bedouin friends.

UNSTOPPABLE Stacey was a guest of The Jordan Tourist Board for this trip and although that does not affect her opinions, the Arizona travel writer believes in full disclosure.
