Camels of Wadi Rum
Wadi Rum, Jordan
This was my second time visiting Wadi Rum and I could not have been more stoked. My first visit to Jordan I had expected Petra to be my favorite sight, but it wasn't until I reached the vast red deserts of Wadi Rum when I realized how wrong I was. Lawrence of Arabia described this land as "vast, echoing, and God-like" and he was so right. Bedouins are pretty much the only people that live here and you can score a pretty cheap couple of nights at one of their tent camps and have a totally unforgettable experience.
