There’s more to Jordan than Petra. There’s the Roman archaeological site at Jerash, the Holy Christian site at Madaba and Mount Nebo, the Citadel in Amman, Aylun Castle and many more sites worth visiting. The ubiquitous camels appear everywhere and you will also notice that Jordanians picnic on the roadside. A word of warning – don’t go in the middle of summer – it’s just too hot.

The church at Madaba


The Roman site at Jerash is definitely worth a visit, although it is quite a long walk there is much to see.

After the walk through the narrow Siq, canyon, with it’s high walls in shades of pink, orange and red, at the end there before you opens out the famous Treasury

Locals at Petra

I spent quite a while watching these burqa-clad locals trying to get onto the donkey. This lass finally mounted the donkey and stayed on, previously she fell off, which caused great mirth amongst her friends.
