Photo Collection: Jordan, 2010

The highlight of Year 2010 was a holiday trip to Jordan in the Middle-East. You can read about the trips here:

1. Marriot Hotel at the Dead Sea review

2. Six Senses Spa Review

3. Evason hotel review

In keeping with the theme of this blog, the articles are mostly hotels and spa reviews. I did take many wonderful photos of the trip and during a quiet weekend, had some opportunity to organise these photos. Here’s some better photos that I would like to share with you. Please let me know if these photos are okay with you or you would prefer that I stick back to just doing spa and hotel reviews. Thanks and I hope you enjoy the photos!
