Westin Resort, Guam, USA

A small beautiful island in the Pacific Ocean, Guam’s beach was a beautiful surprise. From the pristine white sand, to the clear blue green waters, to the perfect sunshine (and a really amazing sunset) – one can just lounge at the shore the whole day.. Or make that 2 days. Plus, the extensive amount of shopping you can do is equally as amazing as the beach!

CASTLES

Karak Castle, Karak, Jordan

Karak Castle, Karak, Jordan

Jordan has a lot of impressive castles around the country. Build during the Islamic period, these massive structures are labyrinths, corridors after corridors of secret passages leading you from one area to another. The huge thick stones are perfect for the Jordanian weather. They serve as coolers during summer, and heaters during winter.

THE PROMISED LAND

Mt. Nebo, Madaba, Jordan

Mt. Nebo, Madaba, Jordan

Said to be where Moses was when he saw the promised land, Mt. Nebo has vast amazing views of Jerusalem and Jericho, the Israel and Palestine side. This is the point going down to the valley, on the way to the dead sea.

RUINS

Jerash, Jordan

Jerash, Jordan

One of the most beautifully well preserved Roman cities outside of Rome, Jerash gave us a grand welcome of Jordan. Hundreds (if not thousands) of pillars surround the city, with bricks and walls that tell much of its history, the site is overwhelming, and it makes you imagine how life was during its peak.

THEATER

The Roman Theater, Amman, Jordan

The Roman Theater, Amman, Jordan

In the middle of the bustling city of Old Amman is this huge Roman amphitheatre. Seeing this massive structure makes you think how it was such a busy ancient city in the old times.

THE CITADEL

Citadel, Amman, Jordan

Citadel, Amman, Jordan

Atop the city of Amman lies what remains of the Citadel. The views of the city from this point is amazing, whitewashed walls covering every inch of the hills and valleys of Amman.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA

WADI RUM, JORDAN

WADI RUM, JORDAN

One of the most amazing landscapes I’ve seen (desert or not), Wadi Rum is a sight to behold. I might have taken 300+ photos of the desert, yet not any one of them can capture how grand it is. Huge rocks as mountains, and red orange desert as soil, plus random camels walking around looking for shade, the 4×4 drive around the desert is one priceless experience.
