Member Colin and his wife Judy recently returned from a trip to Jordan and Israel.  Although they started with a trip down the Danube and Rhine where everything was lush and green, their first stop, in Oman, Jordan, reminded them they were now in the desert.
They took in many fantastic sites and enjoyed many new experiences including the beautiful pink city of Petra and eating in a bedouin tent in Wadi Rum where Lawrence of Arabia made his mark. They effortlessly floated in the salty Dead Sea and climbed (via a chairlift) to Masada, an old fortress atop a mesa. And further on, they saw where fresh water was taken from the Sea of Galilee to irrigate the lands and turn the deserts green.
