Before I even start, I should probably tell you one teeny tiny very important thing. This is not a success story. This is a story of failure. Which is why I figured it would be a good article to write for any non-hikers like me who somehow find themselves on a bus at 3am barreling through…

Petra was a place I dreamed about visiting for as long as remember (well, since I first watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). While I couldn’t wait to walk through the Siq and seeing the Treasury appear, I kept being told over and over about an even better part of the City of Petra:…

Jordan was a dream destination for me. Playing Indiana Jones in Petra, wandering through the ruins of Jerash, and exploring Wadi Rum. I loved Jordan.

Israel was somewhere I wanted to visit for a while. My mom went when she was around my age and had some great stories about floating in the Dead Sea and exploring the Old Town of Jerusalem. Yet when I told people (other than my mom) that I wanted to travel to Israel I was…
