Andy was in the studio once again today to discuss his recent trip to Jordan. He went to the country as part of the National Geographic Traveller Digital Nomad project, in order to experience and share the unique culture of Jordan.
He recommends Jordan as a destination for any history enthusiast, because of the country's rich historical heritage. Jordan's most famous historical landmark is the ancient city of Petra, one of the 7 wonders of the world, and other attractions include crusader castles. Andy said that many travelers are put off the Middle East region due to the unrest there and so Jordan, a very stable country, is an ideal destination for someone who wants a holiday with less fellow tourists. Other attractions he mentioned included swimming in the Dead Sea, and abseiling
Andy also spoke about Jordanian cuisine, made famous by foods such as hummus and mansaf. He thought that the versions he had in Jordan are a vast improvement over what we have available, and also talked about the traditional Bedouin food he had during his time with the tribe.
