Al-Karak - known for one of the largest castles in the region - the Kerak Castle! Worth a stop in the itinerary if taking the Kingsway Highway.

The captivating Kings Highway! One has a choice to make between the quick and drab Desert Highway and the beautiful albeit longer Kings Highway to travel from Amman in the North to Petra in the South. Would recommend to explore it one time at least and stop by Wadi Mujib, Al- Karak and Shoubak on the way.

Wadi Mujib - grand canyon of Jordan! We stopped by the Wadi Mujib area enroute to Petra from Amman via the King's Highway. For the adventure junkies, there is a Siq trail that can be considered for a walk in the river to get to some hidden waterfalls.

Roman Ruins of Jerash - it is a quick one hour bus/coach ride away from Amman. One can spend around 3-4 hours walking in the ruins complex sitting around the main city!

PS. If you are pressed for time and explored ruins like this somewhere else at some point, can also consider giving it a pass.

Time for Jordanian Diaries!
First things first - Knafeh - sweetest thing Jordan had to offer to us! Knafeh ( also spelt as Kunafeh) is a popular dessert in Jordan. While passing by the streets of downtown in Amman, we spotted a huge queue of locals. We decided to queue up as well to explore by ourselves what the fuss was all about :D It turned out that we were at Habibah - a joint that is favourite among locals - for satisfying sweet cravings! Key ingredients that go into the making of Knafeh is Semolina and Cottage Cheese. The gamble was totally worth it!

One of my absolute favorite pictures ever! Took this beautiful shot of @magda.exploring in Wadi Rum where we climbed a rock to watch the sunrise and enjoy such a stunning view. A place I'd definetly want to visit again and againn

One of many colorful and eye-catching juice stalls in Amman, where I had fresh sugarcane juice for the very first time. If I had to describe the taste with only one word it would be: Diabetes

“Go early in the morning or just before sunset. Whatever you do, don’t go during the middle of the day.” Everyone warned us, but still we managed to reach #citadelhill in #amman at high noon. The + is we had the whole place to ourselves. At the entrance, the debate of whether or not to hire a guide was decided when we met all-around colorful character Assad. “Otherwise, you will only look at a bunch of rocks but understand no meaning,” he said (And, our new friend was right). Over the next three hours, Assad shared historical snippets - Citadel Hill has been occupied since the Bronze Age and features significant sights including the #roman Temple of Hercules, built during Emperor Marcus Aurelius’ time (AD 161 - 80), and ancient Arab palace #umayyadpalace (from about AD 720). While these sites were stunning - & stunningly accessible - being with a local who shared his passion & insight into history & culture was the highlight. We shared stories about religion, nationalities, families, marriage, tolerance and empathy...all topics that make #travel so much more than checking ticks off a #bucketlist > When I think about #amman I will always think of Assad and much of what he said, particularly when he lamented the decline he has witnessed over 25 years as a #tourguide of #curiosity > “People don’t ask questions any more,” he said. “There’s no interest in learning about other people. And, when we don’t learn about other people, how can we care about other people?” Let’s always #staycurious & #beintrepid friends. We have much to #learn from each other, no? *
See more pics in our Story and, when in doubt, always hire the local guide!

Just a few days and autumn will be here. Like every year it is now that I really feel the summer, now that it is almost gone. An if on the one hand you have new beginnings, crispy air, magnificent and colorful trees, on the other the ligh starts being a little cold, the nights do not smell of bbq and better to take a jacket, because you never know. Even though this pic was not captured in summer is one that best represents summer colours for me. And you, are you more summer or autumn? ☀️|🍁

Mancano pochi giorni, ormai, e sarà ufficialmente autunno. Come ogni anno, sento più che mai l'estate adesso, adesso che scivola via. Da una parte i nuovi inizi, l'aria frizzante, gli alberi che si tingono di colori magnifici. Dall'altra la luce che diventa sempre meno calda, nessun profumo di brace la sera - fammi prendere il giacchetto, ché fuori fa freddo. Anche se questa foto non è stata scattata in estate è una di quelle che più mi ricorda i suoi colori. E voi, siete più estate o autunno?
