Another place that we stopped at before visiting the Pyramids was the Egypt Papyrus Institute. It is a government approved shop that makes and sells authentic papyrus. Click the button below to continue reading about our experience here!
Welcome to The Egyptian Museum! Also known as the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Museum of Cairo. It was built in 1901 and is one of the largest museums in the Middle East region, housing an extensive collective of over 120,000 ancient Egyptian antiquities.
My family and I were taken here by our tour guides before visiting the Pyramids of Giza. Click the button below to continue reading!
Exploring Eilat Blog – From Wadi Rum (full blog here), we were dropped off by our driver to the border to Eilat, Israel. The process was very easy! Once we were out we took a taxi out to our hotel, Sunset Inn. Click the button below to keep reading.
I’m writing this on a Saturday afternoon, 12:45 pm. A storm has just passed a few days earlier and I haven’t being feeling too productive lately. Although, I have been doing a lot of Yoga which is I guess some what of an achievement. Anyway, I’m very slowly getting back to blogging because I realized it’s been almost a year since I’ve traveled to Jordan and I still haven’t posted/blogged about my travels yet. I feel like some of the details of the trip have already passed me by and although none of us can really travel at the moment, I hope that it will be useful to someone one day.
From Petra, our driver picked us up from our apartment and we were off to our next destination, Wadi Rum.

Good morningggggggggggg! It’s probably not the best time to be blogging about travel while the whole world is on lock down, but I decided to make good use of my time in quarantine. Hopefully this will inspire you to travel and see the world after this whole Covid-19 thing is over.
After we visited Mt. Nebo (you can read the full blog here), our driver had dropped us off in our Madaba apartment (here’s a little view of our apartment). We explored the surrounding area just a little bit and made sure we had a lot of rest because the next day we were heading to Petra!

Welcome to Mount Nebo!
From the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ (full blog here), we headed up the mountain for around 45 minutes and arrived to a very very windy, Mount Nebo. It is located 710 meters (2,330 ft) above sea level – around 10 km North West of Madaba and around 26 km from the capital city, Amman.
Mount Nebo is believed to be where Moses saw the Promised Land. People say it is here, where Moses lived out his final days. He was buried here, but no one knows the exact location.

On our first day, we arrived in the mid afternoon at Al-Houriat Hotel in Amman, Jordan. Obviously, we were all very much jet-lagged and tired from the whole day of touring that we knocked out as soon as we arrived. But, we had a very good sleep and the next morning, we were up early and ready to go on another adventure in Jordan!
Our driver arrived, we loaded up all our suitcases and bags and we were off to our next stop, The Baptismal Site of Jesus Christ (Bethany Beyond the Jordan).
