Today is my 4 year wedding anniversary! My husband and I had the pleasure of honeymooning in Amman and Damascus (which was literally “a whole new world” for me). Here are some of the highlights.
One day when we were traveling through Jordan, we had to wait for a bunch of goats to cross the road. I enjoyed this, just because it was a sight I had never seen before.
We spent a day in Petra, Jordan, which was unbelievably beautiful. To get to Petra, you have to walk a couple miles (aka, for an eterenity in the heat of the desert) down a dirt/cobblestone road. Along the road were interesting sights…
We also had the chance to visit the Dead Sea. Sounds familiar, right? Yeah, that’s where they get a lot of bath salts from!
We spent some time Damascus, the oldest city in the world. It’s truly an amazing place, you look around and you can see everywhere just how ancient it is.
One of the seller’s booths at Al-Hamadeya was blocked by all his goods. My husband asked him how he gets in and out of his stall and he pointed overhead, to a swinging rope, which was knotted at the end. He showed us how he swings, Tarzan style, in and out of his booth!
