Traveling through the ancient world: Petra, Jerash and Jerusalem

Ancient cit of Petra in Jordan

If you like antiquities, you must travel to the ancient cities of Petra and Jerash, both of which are in Jordan, and to Jerusalem. Since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated by Greek and Roman mythology and history. I remember spending hours pouring over books about ancient Greece and Rome. I could spend an entire morning walking through ruins even in the hot sun (note: these places never seem to have trees and I always visit them during the warmer spring and summer months). I will post a long travel article with recommendations on where to stay, how to get there and what to do. In the meantime, enjoy the photos of Jerash, Petra, Jerusalem and Haifa.
