Regrets about long-term family travel?

I was browsing the Lonely Planet forum the other day and stumbled upon an interesting question:  %E2Do you have any regrets about taking an extended family vacation?”  The poster was considering heading out with her family for a year or more and was wondering if any of us would make a different decisio...

A week later: Reflections on hiking the Jordan Trail

A cool, gentle breeze revitalizes me as I lay on my back gazing at the heavens. The solitude and pureness of the desert is almost as incomprehensible as its peacefulness and tranquility. As the moon rises, illuminating and giving depth to the towering sandstone cliffs which surround me, their en...

Finished hiking the Jordan Trail: I am a broken man

After all the falling I’ve done on the Jordan Trail, the back of my pants were ripped and torn. Here I found another great use for Gorilla Tape. I feel like a broken man. The sun has bleached me both physically and emotionally. I woke up this morning and stared at the ceiling for a couple of hours...

Hiking the Jordan Trail: Day 40 – Titen to Aqaba  (17 miles)

I was there, but too exhausted to walk across the beach and touch the Red Sea. After a very comfortable and restful night I felt considerably better in the morning. With the prospects of finishing the Jordan Trail today I was motivated enough to be on the trail at dawn. Today’s hike was long, di...

Hiking the Jordan Trail: Day 39 – Mohammed Mutlak Camp to Titen  (17 miles)

Walking out of the Wadi Rum Protected Area in the sand. Sand, sand, and more sand. Hiking through sand while sick is even less fun. I had a pretty rough night. Stomach cramps woke me up sometime after midnight. Several trips to the bathroom assured that I didn’t get much sleep. I got up at my usual...

Hiking the Jordan Trail: Day 38 – Rest day in Mohammed Mutlak Camp

Sunrise at the camp in Wadi Rum. The early morning sun brought out the deep orange color of the sand. Today was a much needed recovery day, the first in 8 days and the last one of the trip. Only 4 more hiking days! It was also a foot recovery day. Yesterday I was so tired of emptying sand from my s...

Hiking the Jordan Trail: Day 36 – New Humiema to Shakriya (18 miles)

Starting out in the morning in unimpressive desert, which soon led to the dramatic scenery of Wadi Rum of Lawrence of Arabia fame. It was a long but easy day as I made the transition into the Wadi Rum landscape, the stomping grounds of Lawrence of Arabia. Flat, unimpressive desert dominated th...

Hiking the Jordan Trail: Day 35 – Wadi Aheimar to New Humiema (14 miles)

Wadi Aheimar. The picture doesn’t do justice to the magnificence of this wadi. I really needed a person standing there for perspective. Today was a continuation of hiking up Wadi Aheimar. As I continued up this awesome wadi the walls on either side came closer and closer together – sometimes only 6 ...
