Jordan Roundup

Now that I’m back in the UK and back at work, it’s time to reminisce about my holiday to Jordan. For those of you who don’t know, I visit every year to see my rather large family. It’s my pilgrimage that I haven’t missed for a single year since I was born 27 years ago. This post is just a few of the places I visited and things I did while I was there.

Amman has changed a lot over the years and there are so many new and exciting areas that are being built so we have had a little look at a few of them. This area is called The Boulevard. It’s still a work in progress but I can’t wait to come back and visit next year. Especially to visit my new favourite ice cream place. But that’s another post!

IMG_3105Traffic is still the same. No one understands how lanes work. Or roundabouts for that matter! One of these days I’ll be brave enough to drive myself over there.

But the malls have been getting better and better.

As well as visiting the local hotspots, there was plenty of family time to squeeze in since it was Eid. So exhausting! I also have to do an entirely separate post just for the food of course!

A typical family lunch. This isn’t even the whole family!

And as I do every summer, I relearn my cousin’s favourite card games and then lose miserably at them.

It was more chilled than last year but everything is more chill when there isn’t a wedding and parties to attend. But Eid is definitely still busy!

Stay tuned for my next Jordan post on all the food I consumed. Warning; eat something before you read!
