The Ruins of Petra, Jordan
I have been to several countries in the Middle East before, but never in Jordan. After spending a couple of days exploring what Amman had to offer, it is easy to see why it has become one of my favorite destinations.
My journey began in Amman, the heart of it all. I had a fantastic time visiting every place I could, blending in with the locals and discovering everything from delicious food to ancient Roman ruins. I was especially impressed by the Dead Sea and the underwater magnificence of Aqaba, inspired by the ruins of Petra. The stars at Wadi Rum’s desert took my breath away. Literally.
My first stop was the ancient ruins of the Citadel. The best place to get those fantastic panoramic city views, and also perfect for those who love hiking and have no fear of heights.
Ever wanted to make your perfume? Well, this is the place for you. In downtown Amman, they have little perfume shops where you can test fragrances and bottle up your favorite.
Spa lovers aren’t left behind at all. A traditional Turkish bath is quite the experience. Well, mostly it comes as a surprise as you have to spend the whole day in just your birthday suit- but it will all be worth it. It will leave you feeling fresh and soft like never before!
Had enough about Amman? I hope not because there is more! Ice-cream lovers- this is good news for you. In every twist and turn, you will find so many shops selling ice-cream. So many colors, so many flavors – It’s a color heaven combined with the graffiti on the restaurants.
Trust me; you never had ice-cream like this. They have gelato and sorbet ON A STICK; then you choose a bar of melted flavored chocolate to dip it in… THEN, before it dries, you select a candy to ROLL IT IN! Then it dries, and it is the perfect layered customized popsicle! Amazing, right? I’m honestly salivating as I write this.
