If there is anything I can say with absolute confidence about traveling to Jordan, it is that you best get yourself to Wadi Rum. While most tourists are sure to check out Amman, Petra, Jerash and Aqaba, some remain skeptical about making the trek out to Wadi Rum.
The Jordan Museum boasts a wonderful energy, reflecting that of its Jordanian culture. Filled with distinctly unique and interesting cultural pieces, the Jordan Museum does not have an air of detachment which most other museums often strive to uphold, and is thus a much-desired relief for individuals who frequent exhibitions. On the contrary, it is one of the more warm and engaging spaces one can visit – within reason, of course, as it still does its job of protecting and preserving these important cultural items.
“You went to Jordan? With Sabrina?!”
Read those sentences with a slightly shocked voice in your head and you come close to what I hear most any time I tell of our travels through Jordan. Often those making such exclamations are US citizens who may, or likely do not, have a passport themselves. Anything beyond Mexico seems exotic and uncertain.
