When you realise it’s time to travel along one of the seven wonders of the world 🙌🏼😁🥳
Here’s some more interesting facts about Petra that I found online, Enjoy!
Only 15% of Petra has been explored by archeologists. The rest remains to be discovered
Petra was used as one of the settings in the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
As the structures of Petra weakened with their age they became victim to robbers. As a result there were many treasures stolen over the years
Petra is thought to have been established as early as 312 BC. It was the capital city of Nabataens. There is evidence to suggest that between 1550 and 1292 BC settlements had begun in and around Petra
This is the biblical site where it is said that King Aretas ordered the arrest of the Apostle Paul. Petra is referred to as Sela in the bible.
Petra would not have been possible as a place for settlement if it had not been for the water conduit system that was built to provide storage and supply for its citizens.
There was enough water to support the 30,000 people that are believed to have inhabited Petra. There was also enough water in this desert region to have lush gardens.
Petra was the center of caravan trade, an important junction for the silk trade. It was located at a junction that China, India, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Syria and southern Arabia used for trading spices and silk, among other products.
#tbt To the time I was given the opportunity to visit one of the 7 wonders of the world!
When I was given the opportunity I was hesitant to go being that it was my first time traveling without my family, but I'm extremely happy I said yes. .
When was the last time you said "yes" to a new experience or the last time you got out of your own comfort zone? .

🇪🇸 ¿Alguna vez habéis sentido como que todos los dioses se ponen de acuerdo para concederte algo inolvidable? Yo lo sentí 2 veces: la 1a en Islandia cuando en el mismo día de mi cumpleaños el cielo me regalo ver la Aurora Boreal, 2 veces ese día (de un viaje de 10 días solo las pude ver 3 veces y 2 fueron en ese mismo día 🥰) y la 2a fue en este viaje, no sólo porque visité lugares soñados si no por toda la experiencia que tuve convirtiéndose sino en la mejor en el 🔝 de mis experiencias viajeras .
Recuerdo que a las pocas personas que les dije que al final me iba sola a un país como Egipto me dijeron que había perdido la chaveta e incluso que iba de farol, pero no, yo empecé a viajar sola porque ya me cansé de perder oportunidades solo por que otros no se atrevan o no quieran; viajar de este modo no solo me ha permitido conocer muchos lugares y personas diferentes sino también a conocerme a mí misma y descubrir que soy capaz de superar mis propios límites .
Y ahí estaba yo, con 39° a la sombra, mientras esperaba que mi amigo egipcio entrara con el coche y de repente se vino una mini ventisca de arena que me obligó a bajar la cabeza, sujetarme el sombrero que se empeñaba en salir volando y sujetarme el vestido para que no se me viera nada "indecente", salió está foto como postureo de los dioses egipcios 🤭 .
. // 🇬🇧 Where did you feel the best experience for to say 'thank you God or thank you universe'? .
That place where despite the extreme heat or where don't eating nothing for hours, you can't believe to stay there, living it .
For me Egypt was definitely one of them, and yours? .
. 📌 Giza, 🇪🇬 .
Doesn't matter how much of the world you see, how you look at it is what matters. That's our perspective.Traveling by yourself. Thats it. It makes you grow as a person, become more independent, and realize you don't have to be like everybody else who only knows what they know: a less than 50 mile radius outside where they were born
Hidden deep in the Andes Mountains lies the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Surrounded by mystery the exact purpose of this sacred site is still unknown, making the interpretations of Machu Picchu & it’s meaning even more fascinating. To the Incas, the world and its environment were sacred. Their beliefs were strongly connected to the earth and the site itself is aligned with these natural elements — the sun, the moon, the stars & the mountains.
