Jordon Photo Essay

In 2006 after a short stop back home in Vancouver, Canada, Jordan was our second beginning of our trip around the world. With my dad and my first love in tow, we landed in the ancient city of Amman, Jordan and met back up with my brother Ammon our leader. If you love history, Jordan is RICH with it. At The Dead Sea you will have a swimming experience apart from any other, Kerak Castle of the crusades with is dark history will have you wondering, the World Wonder PETRA will have you on your knees in awe and the ancient Roman streets of Jerash will have you walking into the past.

It really is possible to just sit in the sea and float. Swimming is near impossible and watch out for salt in the eyes.
