Tell anyone you’re travelling to Jordan and the first points of reference that will come to mind are Indiana Jones and Petra. Yes, that film may have put The Lost City on the map, but there is so much more to this country than Petra alone.

The truth is that Jordan is still a relatively unknown travel destination, yet there is so much to see! The country is home to a wealth of archaeological sites, nature reserves, biblical points of interest, ancient ruins and peaceful deserts – the perfect introduction to the Middle East.

My visit to Jordan last autumn allowed me to sample a varied flavour of some of the destinations this country has to offer, so if you’re wondering where to travel in Jordan, read on for some ideas!

We have been wanting to visit Jordan with our kids for a while now. The Middle East is so different from other places we’ve been with its vibrant unique culture and tantalising local delicacies, it’s an experience like no other!

From the red sandy desert of Wadi Rum, to the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, there is a lot to see and do in Jordan (although I don’t recommend the Dead Sea with kids, more about that later).

Jordan is a beautiful country full of opportunities for photographers and travellers alike. The people are incredibly warm and kind, and it’s just a great country to travel. I travelled quite a bit of the country on my one trip. However, like many of my photo locations guides, I’m very much aware that I do need to go back and explore more.

Moreover, if you do have any of your own photo location recommendations in Jordan, the comment section is open.

This is my guide to photography in Jordan.

Planning a trip to Ireland can be a lengthy task. One that leaves many scratching their head or pulling their hair out. But, lucky for you, I’ve come to your rescue. Hi, I’m Laura, your local guide. It’s my goal to make your trip to Ireland as carefree as possible. I love seeing visitors fall in love with my home country. Ireland is a magical place, and I understand just how much the trip means to you. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I can’t wait to help you plan it. Now, let’s go on a road trip, an Ireland 7 day itinerary exploring the countries most iconic cliffs, beautiful national parks and we will even take a journey out to one of Ireland’s most scenic islands.

But first, we need to address the big question.

IS 7 DAYS IN IRELAND ENOUGH TIME?

To put it simply, no. 7 days is not nearly enough to see all there is to do in Ireland. In fact, a whole month would only allow you to scratch the service of what the country has to offer. However, with that being said, oftentimes one week in Ireland is all most tourists have. And, while it’s not a huge amount of time, it is enough to see some of the countries major highlights.

Are you planning a visit to Ireland for the first time?

If so, you’ll need some type of itinerary to guide you.

And while Ireland is small, there’s a lot of ground to cover.

In fact, you won’t see everything in 10 days, but with this guide you will see some of the country’s most popular attractions — and a few quirky hidden gems thrown in for good measure.

When designing an itinerary for a first time visit to Ireland, it’s always advisable to draw a line across the country from say Dublin to Galway and then decide which half of the country you want to explore.

With this 10 days in Ireland itinerary, you’ll get to visit some of the popular attractions with tourists in addition to other, lesser-known ones.

This itinerary is geared toward the southern half of Ireland and includes attractions like Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, Waterford City, and more.
