On this journey, we travel from Amman to the evocative Desert Castles of Qasr Kharana, Azraq, and the World Heritage Site Qasr Amra, getting a refreshing look at the transcontinental avian crossroads of the Azraq Wetlands along the way. Then to the unexpectedly lush Ajlun Forest Reserve for some serene walking in its oak, pine, carob, wild pistachio, and wild strawberry trees. And on to Mount Nebo, and Petra, the astounding city carved from living rock, surely one of the top entries in any travelers life list. And after Petra, Wadi Rum, the epitome of geologic pomp and circumstance (we may remember Anthony Quinn in Lawrence of Arabia, firing up the troops with the heartfelt cry: "To Wadi Rum!"). We end with a couple days of well-earned R&R at our plush Dead Sea resort.
