Jordan

We are in Aqaba, Jordan, and have successfully navigated through pirate alley without any incident in a convoy escorted by some war ships which we saw in the distance. There were armed Israeli security people on board patrolling the decks with binoculars, etc. When we went through a...

Amman ...

On our last morning in India we were up early and had a great breakfast from room service and were off to the airport for our flight to Jordan. We arrived early especially since it was an international flight and because of all of the tight security at Indian airports. There were many last...

Day 12 - Like Moses, Crossing The Red Sea

Nothing much to report today, as we spent nearly all of it at the hotel pool. Around 8:30, after a lengthy chat about U.S. politics with Rami, the owner of one of the travel agencies in the hotel, we hopped on a boat to cross the Red Sea to Taba, in Eqypt, where our Egyptian guide and drivers...

Day 11 - Dive Right In

Another great day in paradise, albeit one with little to report on. Ellery and I spent the morning simply hanging by the pool trying to keep cool in the heat. The afternoon was another incredible experience – this one underwater as we took a boat to the coral reefs just south of Aqaba for...

Day 10 - Cue Peter O'Toole

Were it not for the fact that I’m in pain and it’s about 110 degrees here in Aqaba, this would be another perfect day. Even so, it’s pretty damn good. As with most injuries, it isn’t until the next day you feel it the most, and so it was with my fall from the horse. As I woke, each breath and...

Day 10 (continued) - Ahhh, All Better Now

From there it was on to Aqaba, which on a cooler day might actually be paradise. OK, not the town of Aqaba, which Ellery and I wandered through tonight, but the hotel we’re at, the Aqaba Intercontinental. And boy, did we need it … a pool that’s more like a river through the hotel, huge palm...

Day 9 - Yeah, It Belongs On The List of Wonders

This was one of the most spectacular days I’ve ever had traveling. We started early in the morning, before 8 a.m., and headed directly to Petra. At the entrance, we were met by our guide for the day, Mohammed. Although we would not have done so ourselves, the tour company had arranged for us...
