I was on a business trip to Amman, Jordan last week.
If you have seen my any of my previous travel posts, you will know that I don’t like to act or feel like a tourist anywhere I go. Therefore, I wouldn’t visit tourist attractions, unless they were to my interest.
When I travel solo, I make sure to meet and talk to as many locals as I can. I ask them so many questions and get to know more not only about the country but about them as individuals too. That’s why I end up making friends with so many people in each country I visit.
In Jordan such an exploration was necessary because most Saudis are guilty about holding a stereotypical image of Jordanians. They think that Jordanians are unfriendly. I find and personally experienced quite the opposite. Jordanians made me feel very welcomed. I felt like I belong more than some other places I visited before.
So after the trip is over, What do I get back home with?
Stories and friends❤️! Could it get any better?
Yes, if you’re bringing home some aromatic Jordanian thyme which tastes heavenly😉👌🏽
