A little presentation : i'm a french girl, 26 years old. My next travel is in exatly 3 months!!
Destination : Jordan : 6 to 17th september 2010.
Why Jordan? To be honest with you, i want to be Indiana Jones, i'm fan of the last crusade and i think to have an idea about where the grail is hidden... ;)
But seriously, because of WADI RUM & the desert, PETRA & its treasures, AQABA & snorkelling, the DEAD SEA & the experience of floating there, WADI MUJIB & canyoning, DANA & its natural reserve.
I travel alone (and with my hat and my lasso of course, you know i'm indiana jones!)
I want to see a lot, but without running everywhere, take the time.
I hope to find different couchsurfers or travelbuddys on my way!
What about my itinerary ?
D0 : Arriving at Amman airport at night.
D2-3: KERAK/THE DEAD SEA
D4 : DANA
D5-6-7 : PETRA
D8-9 : WADI RUM
D10 : AQABA
D11 : departure at amman airport at 6.00 am
What about transport?
I think Jordan's avantage is the distance between main cities, it's not so far. For exemple, north to the south : Aqaba -> Amman, is just 400 kms (4 hours & 8JD).
I read that rent a car is the better, in this way you are total free.
There are also public buses (expl: Wadi Rum-> Aqaba : 2.50 JD) but not everywhere. But they're taxis instead.
I wonder if i should really rent a car?... I want to but i must say that i am not sure about my driving in an other country, well, i'm a quite good driver but hum hum...
Buses & taxis are a good way to meet people too!
And i read that Hitch hiking is possible on some roads, but i will see on place...
Anyway, as Indiana Jones, i will find a horse! ;)
What about accomodation?
If you have some adresses! thank you! I have some ideas thanks to couchsurfing & travelbuddy, definitely! Couchsurfing is the best way to meet people, discover the way of life of a country, i was in Morocco last year with couchsurfing, and it's an experience to share, really. I am new on travelbuddy and i think it's a good way to meet other travellers and split prices.
I have some nice contacts, will see...
The most part of the time, i will sleep in tent : In wadi rum, petra & dana, i have some adresses of backpackers camps or bedouin camps, i will see on place.... What do you suggest to me?
And anyway, i'm Indiana Jones! ;)
Give me your advices & your tips before the departure!! Thank you!
That's all for the moment.
