For my last semester of university, I studied abroad in Amman, Jordan. It was an experience unlike anything I could have dreamed. Although most of the semester was spent studying Arabic, one particularly lovely weekend, my study abroad cohort and I were able to get away and take a trip to Wadi Rum, Petra, and Aqaba. Though Petra and Aqaba were stunning, Wadi Rum stole my heart. We rode camels through the desert, admired the towering rock formations, drank Bedouin tea, and talked late into the night under the countless stars. If there is one place I hope I am able to return before I die, it is Wadi Rum. One last fun fact is that this is the very place they filmed the movie, The Martian, and I imagine you can see why.
If you have any questions or want advice on visiting Wadi Rum, feel free to contact me.
