I recently read The Alchemist, again. While reading, I kept thinking, "I have to go to the desert!" So I did. Three glorious nights and four days of pure red sands. First day of arrival my friend and I picked up our rental car and headed straight for our bedouin camp in Little Petra. Shortly after arriving we headed straight to Petra by Night. If this is not on your bucket list, add it! I still cannot articulate just how magical this experience was. Let's just say if a guy were to purpose to me right then and there I would have married that fool. Seriously, unlike anything I have ever experienced before!
Day two we hiked all around Petra. Let's just say it was h-o-t. Stopped and had tea a couple of times and made friends along the way.
