Journey to Jordan

If I didn't have a manuscript to finish by Christmas then I would be going on this photography trip to Jordan. Who could resist?

Ready for an adventure? Come with us on a journey to the enchanting city of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Bring your camera to improve your landscape photography skills with Zohrab, Jordan's premier photographer. Watch a CNN video about Zohrab here.

If you need more enticement, here are my personal top reasons to go:

  • The hosts, Tara and Alex, are both experienced travelers, gifted photographers and genuinely nice people. You couldn't ask for better guides.
  • Jordan is surely one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. I've been there several times and only wish I had owned a decent camera back in those days. Instead the stark, bold beauty of the desert, the extraordinary, ancient structure of Petra and the people of Jordan live on in my mind's eye.
  • Whether you are excited by ancient biblical sites, beautiful handicrafts, stunning opportunities for photography (with Jordan's most acclaimed photographer) or the chance to travel off the beaten tourist track with Tara, who lived in Jordan for years, this trip has it all.
  • Hummus and felafel. Just saying!
