    Great group of travelers going through Egypt and Jordan now! Dan and I were guests of the Jordan Tourism Board in early March – we criss-crossed the country for two weeks and never faced any safety concerns.

    We’ve posted our articles from our experiences in Jordan here: http://www.uncorneredmarket.com/category/middle-east/jordan/

      Thanks Audrey! I’m checking out your Jordan posts now. Just got back from the Middle East. I was impressed by the friendliness of the people and the ancient ruins at Petra and Jaresh.

    Cool! We’ll just miss you. Please add us to your list as we will be blogging/Twittering and Youtubing our Soultravelers3 visit to Jordan in May ( 10th through 18th). I am pretty sure we are the only family travel bloggers going at this time as guests of Jordan.

    We’re in Penang now, but head out to Singapore, Bangkok, Bhutan and Jordan on our way back to Europe for the summer.

    Have fun!

      It’s an amazing trip! I’m encouraged by the friendliness of ordinary Egyptians. They truly want tourists to come back and are very welcoming!

    I had an amazing time travelling through the Middle East last summer – when I went, Syria, Jordan and Egypt felt safer than some places in my own city, even when I was travelling as a woman alone. The people were friendly and welcoming, and despite recent world events, I really doubt that’s changed much! Looking forward to reading your updates.
