Getting married? Want to honeymoon someplace spectacularly more memorable than the Magic Kingdom for about the same price? Then how about a couple of weeks exploring the wonders Jordan has to offer? A point well made by a recent post entitled “Honeymooning Outside of the Box” on a blog entitled D.C. NearlyWeds.
As the authoress opines:
A lot of times people ask me out of all my travels what place did I like the most? What was the most impressive? Where would I return? Where do I recommend? All those typical honeymoon spots have their place…and really if you haven’t been you should go, but to tell you the truth none of them have been my favorite. So what’s my top pick? Are you ready? … It’s Jordan … Yep … Jordan.
Amen sister, preach it!
In fact, she goes on to enumerate 8 excellent reasons why you should consider a trip to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan over Niagra Falls or DollyWood, including:
- The Dead Sea
- Wadi Rum
- Cause You Like Movies
- Cause you like History or you like Religion
- Cause it’s easy
- Cause you shouldn’t be afraid
I can think of a few more, but I think ‘Miss Capitol Hill’ hits most of the pertinent nails on the head, driving in points I’ve made on this blog before.
But don’t take my word for it, read her explanations of her 7 pillars of wisdom (plus one) entitled “Honeymooning Outside of the Box” to see yet another voice encouraging you to experience the journey that is Jordan – well that and she’s got some neat pictures posted.
Heck, if nothing else, it sure beats slummin’ about Rockville!by
