I have always had the desire to visit Jordan this because my father worked there many, but many years ago. In this regard I would like to open an important parenthesis … at the age of 18, I found memories of my father, memories of a life spent working abroad to contribute to the development of third world countries. In every country he left his heart and this I understood from the photos that I found where it did not matter where he was, with whom or if he was there to work, with him there was always a smile and the desire to discover people with their culture and their story. I believe that my true being left his memory at that moment, gave birth to me the desire to travel as he had done, so I think that my travels are guided by what I find of his, as if to return to those places I let him know what my father was and what I partly lived with him.
Obviously this is not the only reason that prompted me to take the ticket on the night between December 4 and 5 starting 4 days later. Like all my adventures I try to minimize costs, and constantly checking the flights I finally managed to find a return ticket from Rome to Aqaba for only € 58 !! I can not explain what I feel every time I buy a ticket.
Today I have completed the organization of these 5 days, even if it is not with me because they will come with my best friends who have decided to follow me in my adventure, doubtful for my unpredictability but curious to know the way that I have to travel, this because as you know I love to travel alone without planning but welcoming with extreme curiosity what the journey will have to offer me.
Organisation in a few hours
In this article I want to give you some advice on how to organize a last minute trip at a very low price and taking advantage of the experiences of other travelers, because in addition to the ticket for only € 58 on RyanAir, thanks to endless searches on the internet I came across a review of a guy who on his trip to Jordan knew a taxi driver economic, timely and cheap, advising him and writing his private number to be able to contact him, and so I did the other last night. After half an hour he replied that he was available for all 5 days and we negotiated the price for 100 €.
Yesterday morning I tried the place to sleep and on the advice of several travelers I looked for a hotel in Wadi Musa. But those who know me know that I hardly go to the hotel and scrolling through my search for the word Camp I stopped. This camp is called Ammarin Bedouin Camp and is a Bedouin camp in the desert in Little Petra, at a price of 62 € for 2 nights each.
After booking the overnight stay I inquired about prices for entrance tickets to Petra and I found one of the many detailed pages with prices saying that the 2-day visit costs 70DJ, about 75 €. It also occurred to me to look for the price of the entry visa which is about 40 € but reading the page carefully I found that if you spend at least 3 nights in Jordan you have the opportunity to buy the Jordan Pass online, We could define it as a tourist package, a very useful tool to save you time and money. By purchasing the Jordan Pass you will be entitled to access to over 40 attractions and, subject to certain conditions, to the cancellation of the cost of the entry visa (40 JOD, which is equivalent to just under 50 euros). The Jordan Pass will allow you to access the main attractions of Jordan, with single entry for each site excluded Petra (for details, go to the paragraph “How much is the Jordan Pass”). The exhaustive list you can consult it on the official website but to give you an idea of the maximum I bring you some of the main attractions included in the package are Petra; Jerash; citadel of Amman; Wadi Rum; Karak Castle; Shobak Castle; Madaba archaeological park; Roman theater of Amman; Amra Castle; Umm Ar-Rasas.
The total price of the trip is around 300 € and considering that we are almost at Christmas and considering the destination I strongly believe that it was a great offer.
If you do not want to give up like me to travel but you do not have much economic availability, I advise you never to lose sight of the offers, because when you least expect it you will find the right one for you! And
I recommend you consult and always read the experiences of other travelers because above all in my case they were fundamental!
