LOL I'm back from my trip and what an adventure it turned out to be!
You have probably seen on the news over the last few weeks the problems that have been occurring in Syria......well they affected my trip.........after arriving in Syria on Saturday April 9th we were enjoying the beautiful sights until on Tuesday April 12th the Foreign Office changed their travel advice for Syria saying that all but essential travel should be avoided.......that meant that our travel insurance became invalid and so the company we were travelling with said we had to leave Syria. We had to travel back to Damascus and were flown out to Jordan early the next day.
I have to say it was a great shame as Syria was beautiful and interesting and I shall go back when I can.
Of course Jordan was also interesting but it was a lot more "touristy" than Syria and I found that a bit off-putting and a little surprising.
THE sight in Jordan is PETRA.......THE ROSE CITY and it was the main reason for the trip..........
THE SIQ.......a narrow rock corridor that is about a mile long.........at the end you get the first view........
THE TREASURY..............it was gob-smacking I have to say.
I will share more pics over the next few days while I get back into the swing of making stuff.
Finally, thank you for the lovely comments left on the last few pieces which I had scheduled to appear while I was away, it was nice to read them when I got back today.
