So we’ve made it. Finally. We’ve escaped. We’re free. We’ve been liberated. We are no longer in Egypt. That’s good. We’re in Jordan. That’s even better.

This is an extract from our guidebook on travel in Jordan and on the Jordanian people.

Veterans of travel in Egypt or Morocco will be pleased to learn that, as far as hassle from the locals goes, Jordan is a breeze: your experience of Jordanian people is likely to be that they are, almost without exception, decent, honest, respectful and friendly.

Super. Awesome. All that loveliness aside, the fact that this isn’t, thank Allah, Egypt means that it has already done enough to make us fans for life, whatever may happen from here on out.
