Float On

Written on April 22, 2018 in Jordan

Madaba – November 5th 2017 Surprise!! We have arrived in Jordan. Leaving Europe was a big step. We had been in the European bubble for months and it was nice and a little nerve racking. Jordan in all honesty didn’t scream luxury and easy travel. It did grab me with it’s promise of adventure! We...
