Tel Aviv

Day 1 We started off the morning in Jerusalem. The night before I used Google maps to figure out how to get from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv via bus (I changed the departure time on googlemaps and everything) and for the first time googlemaps let me down HARD. Around 8am, we asked a taxi to…

Jerusalem – The Holy City

We hired a car to take us from Amman to Jerusalem. Problem is at the border you have to go through 5km of no man’s land so once you get to the border you have to leave the car, go through Jordan border patrol, get on a bus to take you through no man’s land,…

Jerash & Amman

Started off the morning with a quick breakfast at our hotel, then we were picked up by the driver we reserved the night before to take us to Jerash. Jerash is about an hour away from Amman and has a city of ruins from wayyyyyy back when. It was a thriving place until 749AD when…

The Dead Sea & Mount Nebo

After a long half day at Petra, we drove to the Dead Sea (about 3hrs). Along the way we were googling the differences between sea’s and lakes and it turns out the Dead Sea is actually a lake sooooo that’s awkward. We arrived at the Hilton and it was a pretty huge change from our…

Wonder of the world- Petra!

We drove about 2hrs from Wadi Rum and arrived at Petra around 1pm. We decided to do one of the hiking loops to get the good views of The Treasury (most famous Petra site).  To get to Petra you half to walk about a mile after the ticket office, through a siq, before arriving! The…

24hrs in Wadi Rum

I got into Amman late around 11pm and met Jack and Sam at the hotel right by the airport. We woke up bright and early to get 6am breakfast and go pick up our rental car at the airport. By 7am we were on our way for our 3.5hr journey to Wadi Rum! On the…

Goodbye Asia!

Went to bed too late last night so only got around 6hrs of sleep, which is unfortunate because our flight to Australia is an overnight flight…. and I can barely sleep on flights. Should be fun! Anyways, went back up to the infinity pool before we got kicked out of our fancy hotel. It was…

MY HALF BIRTHDAY

The hostel we stayed in was actually pretty nice. You had like a little pod for your bed so it was more secluded from everyone else. Anyways, Sam must’ve got food poisoning because I guess he was throwing up all night. We’ve had all the same meals for the past two days so not sure…

Sights of SingaporeĀ 

Arrived in Singapore! Lost an hour with the time change (first time change we’ve had). Our hostel is right in the middle of Chinatown so we had some Chinese food for lunch/dinner. It’s almost the Chinese New Year so Chinatown was pretty crowded. After eating we headed to Gardens by the Bay. It’s basically this…

Superbowl Monday!

Woke up at 5:30am to walk down to Hooters and watch the Superbowl starting at 6:30am in Thailand! One of the guys in our dorm room came with us (he’s from Texas). Overall, it was an fun game to watch! Only downside was we didn’t get to see any commercials šŸ˜­ instead during commercial breaks…

Koh Phi Phi

So quick recap of yesterday- woke up at 6am to get to the airport, got to Phuket around 10:30, took a cab to the pier, ferry didn’t leave until 3pm so we sat for 3hrs and waited. Got on the ferry and found out Sam had never played MASH before so played a game to…

TEMPLES

Let’s start off by saying the beds at this hostel suckkkkk. First of all, the actual bed must be wrapped in saran wrap and they just put a fitted sheet over that because every time you move in the bed it makes so much noise! Basically like rubbing a bunch of plastic bags together.  And…
