Wadi Rum, Jordan

Wadi Rum is a gorgeous pink sand desert, with weird rock formations, narrow canyons with ancient inscriptions, dunes and rock bridges.

We slept in a Bedouin tent, were served fragrant sage tea by locals wearing traditional dress who own camels, smelt frankincense and myrrh, and met a hedgehog.

Petra, Jordan

Petra is Moses’ spring, and an ancient camel caravan trading city in the desert. On the way here were Bedouin tents, camels and olive groves.

Walking through a deep, narrow, winding gorge, we came upon this structure, carved into the rock.

The cardamom coffee and mint tea are divine!
