A travel blog entry by fearcuairt

The mood is jubilant as the plane climbs on its ascent from Frankfurt, carrying its cargo of families heading "home" for the summer. Conversations in Arabic fly across the aisles and children squeal - it's a boisterous excitement I normally find pleasure in watching, but as I surrender to a restless sleep, it is merely a cacophony echoing in my ears. Just after 1:00 a.m., the pilot wakes me, informing us in German first, and then in English, that we ...

Today I headed to east of Amman to the desert castles area. I went with two French girls, a women from Thailand an myself.

It was a reasonably early start for the trip to the Eastern Desert (which stretches from Amman for about 350km to the Iraq and Saudia borders). I was expecting it to be the standard minibus, but it turned out to be a car with only myself, a Dutch couple and another Dutch guy. After about an hour's drive through barren desert of mostly black volcanic pebbles on a single lane highway full of oil tankers and trucks heading to and from Iraq, Kuwait ...
