Petra, One of the Seven Wonders of the World

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!

Mount Nebo

Mount Nebo

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.

Baptismal Site of Jesus Christ

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).

First of many posts from my family’s trip to Jordan, Israel, Egypt and Dubai! From Manila, we flew with Philippine Airlines to Bangkok (3 hrs), had a short layover and from their we flew to Amman, Jordan (9 hrs) with Royal Jordanian. Our flights were all booked directly from the RJ website 🙂

We arrived in Amman at around 5/6am. Waited for our car service and went straight to touring! Didn’t want to waste a day, hehe. Our first stop, Ajloun Castle (or Ajlun Castle).
