Petra, Jordan

Petra, one of the worlds seven wonders, is also one of the most impressing (I’ve seen a few). We started off very early on a horse-back and then hiked through the ancient city that was carved into the rocks. Walking bare-foot through the sandstone red mountains, we made it  to the breathtaking temple. It’s amazing what man can create. Built in the early 1st century, the massive treasury is 30m wide and 43m high.

The Victorian traveler and poet Dean Burgon gave Petra a description which holds to this day -“Match me such a marvel save in Eastern clime, a rose-red city half as old as time.” Yet words can hardly do justice to the magnificence that is Petra.
