Booked this trip before Christmas. Have wanted to visit Petra ever since I watched Indiana Jones when my children were very young. Looking forward to camping under the stars.
Yes me too.. been totally in love with the thought of going to Petra for years.
However, I think I'm going the week before your trip. Departing 2nd April.
Ken and I are also looking forward to going to Jordan, seeing Petra and staying in the desert.
Is the horseriding compulsory? last time I tried I could barely sit on my bike for a week afterwards. Having said that, I do fancy having a go on a camel (highly recommended by the Rough Guide).
Anyone got any thoughts about sleeping bags? Alessandra says no need (plenty blankets) and it seems a lot of luggage space to occupy for only one night. Then again I can't help thinking the blankets might be a bit itchy.
Think I might be coming across as a bit of a wimp. Even before I mention keeping a close ear on the news in case of riots... Shirley (and Rodney) from Dorset
Sorry for the blank message - my computer suddenly closed down.
I think you get a chance to ride a donkey at Petra rather than walk a long way although Gap Adventures give dire warnings about the reliability of the donkeys! I too am watching the situation in that area of the world, although Jordan seems fine at the moment.
I assumed we had to take a sleeping bag but would rather not bother if it isn't necessary. We fancy sleeping out under the stars - I don't know how cold it gets in April.
I have a neighbour whose son lives in Amman at the present tim so keeping abreast of news with her but so far no panic. As for donkey, think I may walk!
Just checked the trip code on Penny's first message and realised I'm in the wrong place - this isn't the cycling holiday, is it?
Have a good time, anyway, and if you see us give us a wave!
Nearly there, so excited! (well, more of a panic on at the moment). We got sheet sleeping bags from Tisos, polycotton, very light and saves carting sleeping bags everywhere for one night.
