      Petra is just 🤯

      October 26, 2021 in Jordan ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

      Of course you need more than a day in Petra. Everything less should be illegal 😃 We went go visit Little Petra. It's a similar town, way smaller though. So the plan was to see it in 15 minutes. It's a quick walk through, but we found this awesome café and the driver wasn't impressed that we took a whole hour 😊 But it was just so nice and we met this guy who was playing this instrument made of sheep. See pics 😊
      You can go to the Monastery either through Petra or the back entrance, which means no tourists and lots of desert. Hiking time! So while you walk you meet kids selling you donkey rides, you meet locals and you can sit and drink tea with them! So nice 😊 You basically come from outside to the inside of Petra by walking on stairs, hills, rocks, you name it. And views you see on the way are just amazing! There are actually chairs on the way where viewpoints are. And nice bedouins selling you tea, "original coins" and offer you a burning wood when you ask for a fire to light a smoke 😂 Oh, and goats be there too. Of course. It's such a wonderful trek, so much beauty, the journey is more worthwhile than the destination ❤️ Don't get me wrong, Monastery is wonderful and HUGE!
      Every day can be such priceless and beautiful beyond expectations. Jordan just never stops giving. I love this place 😊
