{Discovering the Roman Ruins of Jerash}

August 2, 2017 4 Comments

On our way to Petra we flew into Jerash, Jordan. The last thing we expected to find in Jordan were ruins of an ancient Roman city! What a unique experience it was to enter the main arch and find ourselves worlds away. The site was grander than we had expected and we spent a few hours making our way through the well preserved ruins. Our kiddos had a lovely time exploring the different areas and rooms. That is, until we found giant centipedes throughout the overgrown brush (Our son counted 70 throughout our visit) and we decided the natural clear path was a little safer. The beautiful blue skies added to the happy mood we felt as we strolled through and were greeted by the young locals who requested to take selfies with our kiddos. Aside from centipedes and chaos finding parking near the ruins, it was a wonderful family adventure.

    The ruins look amazing! Were locals asking to take photos with you all day? When we were in India, everyone asked to take selfies with us because they thought we were famous! Haha

      Mari, I think they don’t get to see too many children from America. My kids sure felt like celebrities though 😁 I had the same experience in India though, kinda crazy they wanted to take photos with us as much as we wanted to take a pic with them. Thanks dear!
