A Week In Jordan - 4th August

I am booked onto this trip and will be flying from Heathrow on the group flight.

I'm particularly excited to see Petra and Wadi Rum and am looking forward to hearing from others who have booked to go too :)


Hello. We are off to Jordan on the same flight. Dad, Mum and two mature kids (20 & 16). Travelled with Exodus to Sicily and Cuba. Looking forward to the next adventure. Look forward to meeting you. Hilary, Eamonn, Hannah and Thomas

Hi, I'm Sukhi, travelling solo, finally getting excited about my first trip to Jordan. Does anyone have any advice beyond the trip notes on the site? 

...fellow travellers, Katherine, Hilary, Eamonn, Hannah, and Thomas. With the weather we've been having here, I think we'll feel right at home in Jordan. 

Hi Hilary, Eamonn, Hannah, Thomas and Sukhi,

It's lovely to hear from you all, I can't believe how quickly it has come round! I have never been to that part of the world so am really looking forward to it. Hopefully the heat we have been experiencing will help us once we are there.

I am taking a sleeping bag for the night in Wadi Rum, I asked Exodus if I need to take a pillow but those are included. I really need to read through my guide book which arrived last week for more tips!

I will look out for you all at Heathrow, see you soon :)


Kath and Sukhi,

Good to hear fom you both. Taking sleeping bag liners but not sleeping bags. Taking head torches because we have them. Friend who has travelled to Jordan says take binoculars if you have them. lloking forward to new places and new friends. Hilary

Hi all, thanks for the pointers, all very useful. I've now added the head torch and sleeping bag liner to my list, as well as a mobile phone powerbank.

Any thoughts or advice on boots / walking shoes / trainers? I don't want to take too many items and was wondering if walking boots would be too hot & heavy and unnecessary for the amount of walking we'll be doing? 

This weekend is a bit of a washout (weatherwise) so the sunshine and heat is even more appealing. I've not yet heard a negative thing about Petra from anyone, so fingers crossed. 

Counting down the days now....

We are in 4 pairs walking shoes not boots.
