Wow. Wow Wow Wow Wow. I do not want to be home already. I want to discover more of the Middle East. What an amazing trip.
This feeling began with gratitude because the middle of the night we stranded at the airport in Amman and experienced a huge welcoming Jordanian man who invited us to his home and family. It simmered with floating in the Dead Sea and drive through endless deserts and Arab villages. It mused further by interesting history, intriguing cultural differences and special talks with the local population. It then hovered in incredibly magical Petra and with the stubborn but special route that we took. Only us and our thoughts. It tingled when we ended up with a woman who lived in the mountains of Petra for ages and shared her tea with us. The feeling dreamed further when the other 88 year old woman who sat on a rock gave me a kiss. The enchanting feeling flew by and dreamed a dream in the Bedouin camp in Little Petra, where we had the honour to meet the two most special Bedouin and to hearing their life story. The feeling surprised us a moment showing us bright red mountains and red sand. It danced. It hopped on and fell in love with a camel and the Bedouin camp while a million stars were there to be counted. It lost itself in the desert of Wadi Rum. The trip to Jordan in a nutshell.
There are a lot of posts about Jordan planned the next weeks. About the sights, the people, the hotspots, our experiences. And we even made a movie. I am full of inspiration, plans, dreams for the future and new ideas after this trip. I’m glad I can cuddle the kittens but upset because I’m not on a world tour.
For now: a help I’m home-reverie and a few phone pictures as a small preview. Hi, I’m Laura and I’m at home with my backpack full of experiences and a piece of heart that is taken by the Middle East. Now I want to go to Oman.
