I’ve got the plane tickets in hand for our much-awaited trip to Jordan, now just right around the corner. My excitement is overwhelming. I’m afraid I’m just gonna pop. Here is a list of things I hope to do when I get back to my lovely hometown:
- Spend 5 whole days playing with nieces Jessica and Amy and newborn nephew, Michael
- Spend at least one day at the Dead Sea
- Visit the baptism site on the Jordan River
- Have a seafood salad with Lana at Romero
- Eat as much mansaf as I can
- Eat as much Shawerma Reem as I can
- Eat as much Pizza Rimini as I can
- Read the daily newspapers
- Have coffee at Books@Cafe
- Have tea at the RSCN’s Wild Café
- Hang out with the girls on Lana’s porch
- Have lunch at Haret Jdoudna in Madaba
- Visit Auntie Lily
- Visit as many cousins as possible
- Go to Mecca Mall with Zeezo
- Try some of my dad’s homemade wine
- See as many friends as possible
- Meet up with the Jordanian bloggers
- Wake up to the musical masterpiece that is the Jordan gas vendor
- Take a drive in Jabal al-Webdeh.
As you can see, this list is mostly about eating. And you wonder why I never lose weight ;-). Jordan, Jordan, here we come!
Natasha, I’ll lift a prayer for peace of mind! Take a minute to pat yourself on the back after each little item gets crossed off The List. Can’t wait to meet you guys!

I’m off to Jordan in July. My family live in Irbid. I love the warmth of the Jordanian people. Not been for 4 years & am lookin forward to it. Must say though…people living in Amman seem to think a little more like the western world, where as in Irbid, people have just moved out of the village life, so to speak!
thats great news:) hoe you have loads of fun and make sure we meet:) you can pass by the ma3had:) have a safe flight take care
Welcome back home 🙂 Hope to see you and Jeff inshalla again 🙂
Bon voyage 😉
Natasha, have a wonderful time….I am so envious….Books@Cafe, Dead Sea and my all time favourite of Haret Jdoudna.
