A Single Step

It is said that every journey begins with a single step. For us, this journey to Jordan has been in the making for so long that it is difficult to discover where exactly that first step took place, but it probably wasn’t long after we started to get to know each other two years ago that we could have guessed we would find ourselves venturing there together eventually.

So now as we lounge and nap in the lone coffee shop in the Charles de Gaulle’s sparse E2 terminal, ignoring the hunger pangs that would be to expensive and unsatisfying to respond to, it is the exciting prospects of the weeks ahead that fill us with anticipation. Historical sites and exotic landscapes, visits with family members and friends, weddings and engagement parties, are just some of the attractions that we will try to cram into two and a half weeks.
