Earlier this year, I took my first trip to the Middle East, on a holiday to Jordan for 10 days with my parents. I've been posting photos from time to time, which you can see if you click on the Travel tag. We started in Amman, and travelled south via the Dead Sea, along the King's Highway to Petra, and then further south to Aqaba via the desert at Wadi Rum. These photos are some taken there the night before my birthday (a significant one!). The landscape was truly spectacular. The sand was soft, changing colour with the fading light in the evening.
