In 1993, I (Gary) travelled with a group to Jordan and Egypt. The primary motivation
for the trip was diving. However, while there, we visited several historical sites.
The diving was very good but not outstanding. On the other hand, the historical site visits
were the highlights of the tour.
We visited Amman, Aqaba, Aqaba Castle, Jordan Valley, Dead Sea, Mount Nebo, Karak, Petra and Wadi Rum.
If you don't look at any other section of this site, look at Petra. It was the highlight of the Jordan trip.
Prior to the trip, it's interesting to note that we were advised to get a new passport if our existing passports included a stamp from a former visit to Israel.
Pictures and videos of each part of the visit can be accessed via the above menu or the links below.
DISCLAIMER: The pictures and videos in this section were taken with 1990s vintage analogue video and still cameras. Some of the pictures are frame captures taken from analogue video. As a result, the quality is mediocre. In some cases, the lighting was so poor that the pictures were unacceptable. In those cases, I have "borrowed" pictures from the internet that are similar to those that I have taken. Please excuse this transgression but I felt that it was necessary to tell the story.
