Visiting Jordan, discover the many faces of this country crossroads between the Mediterranean and the east you will live a dream. Lawrence of Arabia said in the seven pillars of wisdom: “All men dream, but unequally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day and find that it was vanity: but the dreamer’s daytime are dangerous men, for they can play their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. That’s what I did. ”

Come dream through its scenery breathtaking.
