Just got back from a fantastic trip to Jordan. During our visit we stayed overnight in Wadi Rum. I found our local and excellent host Saleh through internet.
We stayed in bedouin tents and the family prepared a lovely dinner for us. Our 2 kids (5 years old) enjoyed playing with Saleh's kids and loved running around & playing safely for hours. The night was cold (bring lots of warm clothes) but wonderful. We stayed up around the indoor campfire while Salehs relative poured us hot sweet tea. At night, once the moon was behind the mountains, we saw millions of stars in the clear sky. We woke up just before sunrise and went for a short walk to see the sunset. The kids were amazed by the wild flowers that seemed to have sprung up everywhere overnight.
When we got back to the camp we had a hearty breakfast with some warm tea & coffee. After breakfast Saleh took us for a trip through Wadi Rum in the back of his open car. The kids loved it. We also went Sandboarding which was lots of fun for the whole family.
When we got tired we drove to an area with amazing views of Wadi Rum (even more amazing than before) and Saleh & his friend cooked us a fantastic meal the traditional way, in a hole in the ground.
The trip was amazing and we will definitely return soon.
Thanks Saleh for the warm welcome you gave us and for the great experience!
