Next stop: Amman, Jordan

I am headed to JFK in a few hours to fly to Amman, Jordan on Royal Jordanian Airlines.  In July, I got an e-mail from Visit Jordan that an editor had passed my name along as a good candidate for the trip.  I had a wonderful visit with her in April and she happens to be from Jordan.  Jordan has done cutting-edge outreach to bloggers and writers focusing on digital and I am honored to be a part of the trip.

I immediately started reading Queen Noor's autobiography and The Lion of Jordan, about King Hussein, before I got the itinerary from Visit Jordan.  Amman. Floating in the Dead Sea. Hiking to the top of Mount Nebo. Camping in the desert of Wadi Rum. Aqaba. Petra. Wineries. Museums. In short, an ideal way to learn the heart and culture of an incredibly diverse country.
