Just an hour's flight from Israel is Jordan. We'll start by exploring the Wadi Rum desert in jeeps and on camels. This dessert is famous for its red sandstone, making it look like the surface of Mars - a lot of Scifi films shoot there Mars scenes here! Enjoying local cuisine and the insights of our tour guide, we shall sleep in a Bedouin camp in the desert. Don't worry, we'll be desert glamping in style with the comfort's of a hotel room and en-suite bathrooms. And if you wake up in the night you can pop out for a casual stroll through the desert - because why not?
Then we'll take a 90-minute ride to Petra, and see the ruins of the Nabatean Kingdom. Through a narrow canyon, we'll see the tombs and temples carved in pink sandstone. We shall return at night to see this wondrous site lit by thousands of candles. This is something you'll never forget - and think about the Instagram kudos.
On our 10th day we return to Tel Aviv for a final meal together, no doubt with plenty to talk about.
