I was in Jordan for two weeks with my family and we went on a day trip to Wadi Rum. I enjoyed it so much that I went back on my own for another day trip. I had made arrangements with Eid Hamdan Al Zlabieh, who is truly kind, trustworthy, easygoing and over all a good man.
I was also so fortunate to be in Wadi Rum on the day of a wedding, and upon my arrival I got invited immediately. That was a grand experience, I felt very lucky to be part of it.
One thing; the desert is COLD when there is no sun! So bring warm clothes, especially if you are spending the night.
I would recommend going to Wadi Rum to everybody. And I am sure that one day I will return for another bumpy camel ride and a cup of tea with my friend Eid.
Best regards, Anne, Denmark.
