Wadi Rum


I started to write this blog in English. There are at least couple reasons for that: First of all, I suppose it might improve my English skills. And secondly, it´s easier for my English speaking friends to follow my doings. Enjoy!

Two weeks ago I packed my bags and flew to Jordan and Wadi Rum with four of my friends. It was a great little trip with beautiful surroundings. Most amazing I´we ever seen I think. We stayed in Wadi Rum for ten days and also visited some nice attractions like the city of Petra and Dead sea.  Let the photos speak their own language.
