To explore the ancient lands of Jordan and Israel is to come face-to-face with the various epochs of history that have made us who we are. The Jordanian capital, Amman, was previously known as Philadelphia, and its Roman theater reminds us of the glories of that great empire. Mysterious Petra appears out of nowhere – a remarkable rose-colored city hewn from the sandstone cliffs by the Nabataean people and now regarded as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The desert at Wadi Rum resonates to the exploits of T.E. Lawrence, more popularly known as Lawrence of Arabia. Then there is Jerusalem – one of history’s great cities and a holy site for many of the world’s religions. From the Wailing Wall to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and from the Temple Mount to the narrow streets of the Old City, there are few cities in the world that are more evocative and exciting, yet still mean so much to so many people.
