Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Many many years ago I did my first 'wet wadi (canyon) hike' in Jordan. After a very hot and very strenuous uphill hike, we arrived at the entrance to the Malaqi trail. We walked into a narrow gorge and within minutes we stood in a small, but fast flowing stream. The next few hours were just mesmerizing! While following the river on its descend to the Dead Sea, we had to climb over rock formations and slide down some pretty wild waterfalls and the winding gorge surprised me over and over again. After this first wet canyon trip, I hiked many many more but I will never forget the excitement of that very first one!"

The experience in Jordon itself was fantastic. It is a beautiful country and we enjoyed Petra and Wadi Rum immensely. The experience with kimkim was good at first, but a lot of important details were missed that soured our experience.

Our driver and guide, Faris, was great and so knowledgeable. He took us to Petra which was a highlight of the trip, then we stayed in a Bedouin camp in Wadi Rum (I recommend letting people know that the drive through the desert to get to the camp takes about 25-30 minutes.
