From Wadi Rum we moved west towards sea side resort of Aqaba. Peter and Phillip aren’t very aquatic, so they mostly sat this one out, mostly chilling out after a week in the sand
Monika and I went scuba diving, which is what people mostly do in this place.
All the dives are from the shore, and have fantastic coral reefs, as well as some cool artificial features (such as sunken plane, a tank and a boat).
It was time well spent, however after 3-4 days you kind of seen it all. One thing that stood out was a night dive. Monika’s first of this type.
The most interesting part was the fast that all the divers had to be escorted by and accounted for by the local military personnel – mostly due to the fact that one technically could swim across the sea to Israel. A big nono.
We did go see the town one evening, but it is a town – nothing special that I remember now.
Next stop from Aqaba was Israel, and oh my, that’s a mini epic of a journey on its own…
