Jordan Trip: October 21-28 2017
The Hashimite Kingdom of Jordan Facts:
Their Motto: “God, Country, King” or translated to “Allah, Al-Waṭan, Al-Malik”
Language: Arab, English – everyone we encountered spoke English. But it is nice to know a few basic Arabic.
Religion: Majority Muslim, Minority Christian
Currency: Dinar – JOD or in terms of currency calculation is was 1.3 JOD to USD, Which meant it was more expensive for us. Yep, Jordan is an expensive city. I wasn’t surprised since I read it everywhere. The dollar didn’t go as far as we hoped.
Flag: Black, White, Green and Red
Below is our Itinerary… Some rush through the country and go straight to Petra and see the country in about 3 days- we wanted to take our time and see most of the country. There were still so much to explore!
I omitted the long version of this, I broke it down to the hour but that may be overkill for some people. I posted our Itinerary because I was looking for something online and struggled to find one that suits our needs. So hope this may help for your future trip to Jordan!
