Travel Blogs from Madaba
We had planned to visit the Dead Sea from Isreal but had trouble finding hotel accommodation so we haeded to Madaba, one hour from Amman. We were surprised to find such a lovely little town and extended our stay from one to three nights. The hotel,Moabland, called our name, so to speak as Moab, Utah is one of our favourite spots.

I can't even describe how amazing this road was. Temps up to 25 ...
