Jordan’s wild landscape is not quite all desert as you’d imagine. It is a dry arid land but there is much beauty in it. We were told of the Arabian Oryx, Striped Hyenas, Nubian Ibex and the Sinai Azure Blue lizard. We saw none of these animals sadly, but we experienced hot springs, trekked through scrubland canyons and camped out in desert vistas under the starry night. In awe.

I haven't had such an amazing and rich of events day in a long time. No words!
Today we went to Wadi Rum, a desert quite close by Aqaba (about 1h drive). The place where 'Martian' was shooted due to its unique landscapes, a place full of history and its own ambience. The desert (not all of it, but big parts) is actually red. And it really seems like an extraterrestrial place, made with sand, wind, water and sum.
Camels, jeeping, climbing, hicking, sand-surfing (!) among that all was so surreal. It's just impossible to explain all the emotions, it just has to be experienced.
We really spent half a day just climbing all the rocks we could and enjoying every moment and every view.
And it was a cold desert. Really. Though it was a good thing, I still believe.
I have too many photos and words for one post and too little time, so will get back with tips tomorrow.
