Day 5: Wadi Rum

We were all a little late getting to breakfast on Thursday morning.

There had been various optional activities available the previous night. One was ‘Petra by Night’, where they light a lot of candles as you walk down the Siq to the Treasury, where you sit and listen to some traditional music. We decided to skip this as our kids had done enough walking, and besides, any one attending was asked to stay quiet. Our children are not capable of being quiet so we gave it a miss. The people who did go enjoyed it but agreed it wasn’t really suitable for younger children.

Others in our group went to the local Turkish baths and had a great massage and hose down. This appealed to me more but I didn’t fancy it with two kids tagging along, so we all got an early night. read more
