A Wadi Rum Photo Story

Wadi Rum jordan

The most memorable moment I have of Jordan is laying awake beneath the bright moonlit sky in the silent Wadi Rum desert. I was the only one awake and completely alone in the darkness.

It was perfect.

The rest of my Wadi Rum experience was just as incredible, complete with speeding through the dramatic landscape in the back of a 4×4, climbing geologically stunning sandstone arches, enjoying a traditional zarb dinner and a sunrise camel ride.

Here are my photos which I feel best tell a story about the Wadi Rum Desert.

Sleeping outside in the desert
is one of my favourite things to do.
Have you ever camped in the desert?

    I spent 10 weeks in Jordan teaching English the summer before last! It is an achingly beautiful country! Sadly, I didn’t have time for an overnight trip in Wadi Rum, but we did spend half a day there and it was by far my favorite excursion in Jordan. So stunning. The hikes/climbs in Petra were a close second 🙂
