Finally, after 2 years longing to visit Jordan, we were given the chances to do that..
The rihlah that was planned since 2010 was postponed last year due to the political instability in the Middle East, especially Syria. Instead, last year we went to UAE.
This time, counting our days in Saudi Arabia near to the end, we determined to make it happened even though without possibility to go to Syria. 5 days Hajj vacations coupled with the 2 weekends gave us reasonable 9 days to explore Jordan.
So, on Wednesday Oct 24, 2012 at about 4.45 pm our 5th rihlah started. On GPS, the journey covering almost 1600km should take about 15 hours to reach our 1st destination, Aqaba!! That's excluding the extra times for the stops for refuelling, foods, pray, rests and leaking business. So, this apparently going to be one of our longest journey ever.
Wait for our updated day-to-day Rihlah of Jordan 2012, including ups and down of our journeys, highlights, traps, tips and tricks in our blog inxps.blogspot.com.
