So many PCR Tests! Think the PCR tests will cost more than the holiday. One today, one in the hotel at Amman, then the final one 2 days after we get back.

It'll be worth it once you're there. 👍
We're the travel companies first tour in a very long time. So, the CEO has contacted my wife and asked for photographs and comments for their website. We're on our own as such, but we have a driver that will take us from place to place and hand us over to local guides where appropriate. We finish at a spa hotel on the Dead Sea. I'm really excited about seeing Petra. :)

Not all those that wander are lost.

It's been a great week here in the Kingdom of Jordan. Starting with the Greek/Roman city of Jerash which saw the Romans move from Paganism to Christianity.

We explored the ancient part of the capital Amman including the amphitheatre and the citadel high on top of the city. Greek,Roman and Muslim.

Down to look at mosaics at Madaba and then onward to Kerak Castle built in the 12th century by the Knights Templars. Survived 150 years before being starved by the forces of Saladin.

On down to Wadi Rum. The red desert of the Bedouin and famed for the scenery in Lawrence of Arabia, the Martian amongst many. A 4x4 ride seeing Lawrence Spring and the remains of his house. Stunning!

A day at Petra. Saw the Treasury and even managed the steep climb to the Monastery. Truly amazing and date I suggest should be on everyone's bucket list.

Finishing at a very nice Spa hotel on the Dead Sea. We're opposite Jerusalem. Glorious sunshine, swimming and spa treatment to finish the week. No swimming in the sea, and the pools of Dead Sea water have been drained.

An incredible week and a reminder why we travel.
