In March 2016, Rex went on an adventure to Jordan, one of the most spectacular regions of the Middle East. His adventures began when he arrived in Amman and took the hour-long journey, passing through desert landscapes and rocky outcrops, down to the Dead Sea. He spent his first week covering an international conference on mercury but found time to enjoy both the magnificent hotel grounds and the alluring Dead Sea. From there he packed his bags (and his extra packets of Dead Sea mud) and travelled across the desert to Wadi Rum, an immense valley in the southern part of Jordan. There he went on a variety of desert adventures, discovering ancient civilisations and rock art, sand-boarding down sand dunes, climbing to the top of stone bridges, watching the sunset and finally resting in a Bedouin camp. The next day he summoned his inner-Indiana-Jones-spirit and explored the spectacular sites of Petra, hundreds of tombs carved into the red sandstone and a reminder of the ancient worlds that have come before us. Rex loved every minute he spent in Jordan and was overwhelmed by the kindness, hospitality and generosity of the local Jordanians. Jordan is now one of Rex’s favourite places in the world and he looks forward to returning one day for more adventures.
