My oh my, Wadi Rum is just out of this world!

After spending five days in Wadi Musa & Petra, my husband and I went down to Wadi Rum for 3 days to walk in the footsteps of T. E. Lawrence; aka Lawrence of Arabia.

We had THE very best time and we were simply swept away with the beauty of this amazing desert landscape.

Here’s our guide Sabbah getting me ready for the day.  As he began to wrap the keffiyeh around my head, he paused and enquired, “How do you want to look today?  Are we going for the ‘keep the sun and sand out’ look or find a Bedouin husband look?” Lol!

After picking my way up the rocks to the top of Lawrence’s Spring, I was awarded with this spectacular view.   Those bushes around me are wild mint, so you can imagine the heavenly scented aroma every time I brushed past them!

One awesome big red sand dune!  It was hard work scrambling up, but so much fun running back down!

Just chillin’ in the desert!

Being typical tourists and having a bit of fun pretending to hold up Mushroom Rock.

A perfect ending to the day; perched up high, watching the sunset 🙂
