Aqaba, Jordan 2011

Part of my summer vacation this year included visiting Aqaba, beach-city in Jordan, which is a 5-hour drive from where my family lives, Irbid. The weather was AMAZING (to me atleast); 45 degrees during the day and around 20 degrees at night with a warm, summer breeze -- heaven. My cousin and I stayed at the Swiss Movenpick Resort right infront of the beach. Here are a few snaps of my 4-day stay.

Sha'lan the camel :) it costs only 1 dinar (approx $1.20 CDN) for a 10-min camel ride

I miss it already,
