An Adventure of a Lifetime; Wadi Rum Safari, Jordan

We did a #desertsafari tour around the calm and stunning #Jordanian #desert; with its beauty serving as a backdrop for Hollywood blockbusters like Lawrence of Arabia and Prometheus, there is no question why #WadiRum occupies a special place in our hearts.

Even the slightest mention of Jordan conjures up images of the mighty Petra. While Petra is spectacular and definitely worthy of a visit, Jordan’s real beauty lies in the untamed outdoors.
