I want to stay in Jordan :'(

23 Oct

I’m not even half way through my time in Jordan and I already have this overwhelming sensation of wanting to stay here.

The day my flight left for Jordan I realized that I this was the farthest I would be traveling on my own and staying for such a long duration of time. Yes, I was nervous. I was anxious and I was starting to doubt my decision but ever since the day I landed in Amman via Queen Alia Airport I was in love. In love with the country, in love with its people, in love with its FOOD, and in love with its culture.

I have been blessed with a beautiful opportunity and have taken full advantage of as much as I can. I hiked through Petra, one of the 7 wonders of the world, I traveled on camel for 3 hours to a camp site in Wadi Rum to dance around bonfires with Bedouin people, I swam in the Dead Sea AND the Red Sea, and sooooo much more!

Being in Jordan just proves to me how much I have yet seen. There is so much around you that for you to keep yourself in one environment all your life is a huge disservice. I find myself talking to my friends here in Jordan and wondering where we should go next!

Check out some pictures from these past few weeks especially my BIRTHDAY!!!!!
