- It's hard to pick a highlight as there were so many. Petra is incredible and the second day there, walking around the back and largely away from all the tourists was amazing. The desert was equally stunning however and the warmth of the Turkish bath after a cold, damp day is hard to beat.
Future travellers need to be aware that it CAN and DOES rain and even snow in Jordan so, as well as a waterproof, waterproof trousers could also be handy. Also, particularly at this time of year, many of us wished we'd brought our own 4 season sleeping bags instead of having to put blankets inside the ones provided. (The blanket/sleeping bag combo was warm though, so it isn't a complaint against Explore)
