Jordan River Baptismal Site

Take in the WONDER of it all

Another must see in Jordan. You'll be so close to the Israeli boarder that you can walk down to the river's edge and see pilgrims being baptized on the other side! It's just amazing to think that Jesus, and so many others, walked these paths.

Plan to spend at least a few hours here!

Before visiting Kerak, we had gone to see the Montreal Castle in Shoubak. While the Shoubak castle was nice, it can't begin to compare with Kerak (sometimes spelled Karak, or al-Karak) -- the ruins of a large crusader castle from the 12th century. The rui

Ballooning over Wadi Rum

This was one of the highlights of our Jordan trip. Captain Khaled took us ballooning in Wadi Rum. He runs a very professional outfit. Needless to say Wadi Rum has some spectacular scenery and seeing it from above in a slow floating balloon is the ultimate experience. I will do this again if I ever have the opportunity.
