This is going to be a quick one because we are both quite exhausted from a day of being on the road. We left our hotel in Istanbul at 10:30, checked in and stood in queues for several hours before boarding our flight on Royal Jordanian headed for Amman. Very pleasant 2 hour flight with on board movies and all. We then headed to the Jordan tourist office to get some advice on getting to our hotel. He pointed us in the direction of a bus and we hopped on with the locals for an hour ride into Amman. We arrived at the North station and then caught a taxi to our hotel another couples of kilometres away. True to form the taxi driver lit up a ciggie on the way and charged us more than the metre.
Our hotel is actually very decent considering it is on the outskirts of the city. Only issue is the reception guy doesn't have the best English vocab around and when we tried to get some advice on crossing the bridge to Israel he was less than helpful. Anyway thanks to the Internet we managed to find some info and contacted the bus company. We'll be up at the crack of dawn and heading to the bus station by 6 tomorrow morn. Hopefully all goes well as we cross the border. Please send us your positive thoughts as we are both feeling a little uncertain but excited about this leg. Towards the Holy Land we go...
