Keeping Up With the Jones

It wasn’t until this year that I came to the realization that most of my “dream vacations” are drawn from Indiana Jones movies. A few years ago, my sister and I went to India. At the time I thought I wanted to go simply because it had always, for some inexplicable reason,  seemed like a mysterious and intriguing place. Actually, it was because the second Indiana Jones movie takes place there. I’m not going to lie, that trip wasn’t my favorite. So I was a little nervous when just two weeks ago I took off on a plane toward the one Indiana Jones location that had delighted and intrigued me beyond all others: the monuments of Petra, Jordan.

And, guys, not only was Petra incredible, but also Jordan itself and neighboring Egypt (both visited on the 9-day tour I participated in through Intrepid) were full of more amazing sites than I can do justice. So — as usual — I’ll let my photos do the talking. (Below are just a small selection of the photo highlights. To see more, visit my Picasa gallery.)

    Kim! The win of all wins. Incredible photos, Indiana Jones talk. Seriously though, that trip looked unreal cool, Kim. So stoked.

        No, sadly not, Kim. I forever will go to my grave thinking the first and third movies are the best. But at least we can agree that the fourth is the worst. :)
