However, this itinerary is here to show that if you have around 14 days of vacation to spare, this can be just enough time to get a taste of these fascinating countries in one go! For our trip through Egypt and Jordan, we had spent a total of 13 days. However, 3 of these days were lost to travel (so, technically… Read more »

Desert Adventures review Jordan

Last Updated on September 24, 2019While hiring a tour guide service is not necessary to explore Jordan (I’m sure most seasoned travelers would be fine navigating this lovely country on their own), it can certainly make the trip easier and less stressful. We had ended up using a tour service because we had paired this trip with a week-long adventure in Egypt, prior to coming to Jordan. Now, in Egypt, I highly recommend hiring a guide service. We had worked… Read more »

How to Spend 14 Days in Jordan & Egypt - The Ultimate Itinerary

Last Updated on September 4, 2019Jordan is a destination that may not top that many tourist’s travel lists. I often would get asked – “Jordan? Why would you want to go there? What you can you even do in Jordan?” Well, I’m here to tell you, there is A LOT to do and see in Jordan – from the Dead Sea to Petra and Wadi Rum and more! (Did you see all of my posts, here?!)

"Desert Adventures" Tour Services Review for Jordan

“Welcome to The Martian Experience,” is how the owner of Mazayen Rum Camp appropriately greeted us as he showed us to our “Martian tent.” Through a series of fortunate events, our desert camp experience in Wadi Rum, Jordan had gotten a major upgrade. (The previous camp we had booked through our tour company ended up being overbooked for our dates, so we landed a complimentary upgrade to Mazayen Rum Camp!) *Click here to see current Mazayen Rum Camp prices.

How to Spend 14 Days in Jordan & Egypt - The Ultimate Itinerary

Last Updated on September 24, 2019 Wadi Rum a.k.a. “The Valley of the Moon” and the closest I’m likely ever going to get to Mars! It’s a little under a 2-hour drive from Petra. We drove straight here after we were done hiking Petra, so we could embark on a 2-hour Jeep tour that would then drop us off at our desert camp. But before I get started on explaining the tour I want to give a little background on… Read more »

Petra what to wear

Last Updated on September 25, 2019When planning for our trip to Petra, I spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out what to wear for this day of exploring in Jordan. I was seeing a lot of extremes when I was Googling around for blog posts on the subject – sometimes the post would feature the lovely lady in a gorgeous dress or skirt with sneakers or sandals and other posts were telling me to wear my best… Read more »

How to Spend 14 Days in Jordan & Egypt – The Ultimate Itinerary

Last Updated on September 22, 2019Ah, Petra. The main reason folks come to Jordan! Visiting Petra was one of the last things we did on our journey through Egypt and Jordan – and it did not disappoint (like the pyramids had). Petra was every bit as splendid as I hoped it would be. However, there were certainly ways I could have improved our trip here…and there were a couple of things I did correctly that I think others will find… Read more »

What I Wore to Float in the Dead Sea (Jordan)

Last Updated on October 10, 2019 I took a risk with what I wore to float in the Dead Sea while we were in Jordan. If you remember my blog post about the Dead Sea from when we were in Israel, you’ll know that wearing such a light-colored or brightly colored swimsuit is risky business! The reason you wouldn’t want to wear a brightly colored swimsuit…or ya know, a red and white swimsuit, is because of the high salt content… Read more »

What to Wear for a Day of Exploring Madaba, Mount Nebo & the Dead Sea in Jordan

Last Updated on October 10, 2019Wondering what to wear for a day of exploring near the Dead Sea in Jordan? This post is here to help! Deciding what to wear for this day of exploring was a bit tricky, as I still wanted to be comfortable and dressed conservatively (more info on how to dress appropriately in Jordan as a woman here), but I wanted something that could also double as a coverup at the beach after we were done… Read more »

The Brazen Serpent Monument

Last Updated on October 10, 2019Madaba and Mount Nebo are two historically significant spots to visit in Jordan. Now, neither of these places are going to rank as high as say Petra or the Dead Sea on peoples’ itineraries. However, does that mean they aren’t worth adding to your Jordan itinerary? In this post, I’ll explain what each location has to offer, and my opinion of whether or not they’re worth visiting, plus a bonus stop along the way. Madaba… Read more »

How to Dress Conservatively Yet Stylishly for Traveling in Jordan

Last Updated on November 12, 2019 As a foreign woman (or man) traveling in Jordan, it’s important to give some thought to how you dress. As was the case in Egypt, Jordan is also a mostly Muslim country where dressing conservatively is appreciated. Now, nothing terrible will happen if you don’t follow these clothing “rules.” However, as a tourist, I think it’s important to respect the culture and customs of the country you are visiting. So, offending the people of… Read more »

How to spend 3 days in Jordan - the ultimate itinerary

Last Updated on October 10, 2019Amman, Jordan is a great home base for taking day trips. The obvious day trips are, of course, Petra and the Dead Sea. However, northern Jordan is filled with rich history and beautiful landscapes too! If you have enough time in your Jordan itinerary, I highly suggest visiting northern Jordan as well. This post will break down what to see in the northern part of Jordan at a relatively relaxed pace and some suggestions for… Read more »

Amman Jordan

Last Updated on August 24, 2019Amman, Jordan is a city I had spent 3 days in. I had used it as a “home base” for seeing many of the sights of Jordan. After the chaos of Cairo, Amman was a welcome change of pace. The city is much calmer, so to speak, and also safer. (We were fine wandering Amman by ourselves at night after we were done touring.) Unfortunately, I did not spend nearly as much time exploring the… Read more »
