Aqaba

 

So, I haven’t updated much lately. Mostly because I haven’t done much traveling. That’s the downside of working a normal job. But I do like my job, so I shouldn’t complain too much.

The reason to why I’m updating again right now though is that I’m having a week off of work. Currently I’m in Aqaba in Jordan. Arrived yesterday afternoon so haven’t done much yet. My brother is with me and we’re staying at the Intercontinental hotel in Aqaba. Yesterday we only had time for a quick swim in the pool, a meeting with the travel agency to book some trips and then a yummy dinner.

Today we’ve spent the day in the sun. First a few hours on the beach (50 m from the hotel) and then a few hours by the pool (just behind the palm trees on the picture).

Here’s a picture of the view from our hotel room by the way. It’s got a weird area outside our “balcony”, looks like it could be used for something, but there’s never any people out there… The pool area is right below it. Lovely view. Israel to the right, Jordan to the left (further down is Saudi Arabia).

Now we’re heading out for dinner. Don’t know where yet, but we’re going to head over to the “restaurant street” and find somewhere. Tomorrow we’re going on a trip to Petra! So exciting.
