Destination: Jordan

DSC02399

I’m starting to think the world is a more marvellous place than I had originally imagined. Every new destination traveled, seems to unravel another little treasure this earth has to offer. I feel like a broken record, as I haven’t found something that has disappointed me, or hasn’t taught me something thus far.

Places like Peru, Nepal, South Africa etc, have really stuck with me, but now Jordan has crept into my life like no other. Never have I learned so much. It was not a culture shock per say, just a shock of how uneducated I truly was about…
