Petra here we come

Tomorrow it's my birthday! I am dangereously approaching the mid-thirties, well well, we are all heading that way, aren't we? But to be honest I really wanted to stop counting when I got to 20 - waow, that's a long time ago.

Well for my birthday, Bobs has decided to take me here (picture from the Jordan Tourism Website):

I am so excited to see Petra, it was added to the World Heritage Site List of UNESCO in 1985. When I was kid and watching Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, I would never have dreamt of ever going there. It has to be one of the most, if not the most amazing landmark in Jordan. We are driving down tomorrow, so we can visit early on saturday morning. I guess it'll take around 2 and half hours to get there. Bobs is organising everything, so don't know where we are staying or anything. I am really looking forward to this! Bringing back some amazing pictures of this trip.

Happy Birthday for tomorrow! Enjoy Petra, I am so jealous...
We went to Petra when we were still living in Qatar, literally a month before the second Iraq war - there were 73 visitors per day when we were there as compared to the around 3,500 per day they usually have - it was utterly divine and we felt very lucky to be able to have the place to ourselves - and a choice of donkeys, too!
