Trip Report Trip Report with Pictures and HD Video: Middle East & India

Jump to last reply

I recently returned from a 3 week trip to the Middle East & India, and put together a trip report with lots of photos and videos to augment the report. The full report can be found here: http://www.justinandcrystal.com/MiddleEast2014/ (FYI, I also posted this trip report on the Africa & Middle East board as well, since it spans both forums)

Our first stop was Jordan, where we visited Amman, Jerash, the Bethany Baptismal Site, the Dead Sea, Petra, and Wadi Rum.

Next up was Egypt, where we visited Cairo, Abu Simbel, took a short Nile cruise from Aswan through Kom Ombo, Edfu, and Luxor, and then back to Memphis and Cairo again.

Then we had roughly 48 hours in Istanbul, where we tried to hit as many highlights as possible.

Lastly, we went a couple of spots in India, including Bandhavgarh National Park (where we were lucky enough to spot 6 tigers), Khajuraho, Orchha, Agra, Fatepuhr Sikri and Jaipur.

We had an excellent time, and are really glad we went. Most all of our friends thought we were nuts to go to the Middle East, but we never felt unsafe, and everyone we met was both very welcoming and very appreciative that we came to their country.

Let me know if you have any questions about any of this, I'd be happy to answer as best I can.
