Northern Africa / Middle East Travel

by Hidden Trails 01/31/2011

We all have heard the news about Tunisia and Egypt. Of course we have suspended trips to these two countries for the time being. We all hope that in the end the situation will improve for the people that live there and make them even bigger tourist attractions in the future once they have stabilized their political situation.

At the same time we can confirm that there are no troubles in either Morocco, Jordan or Oman and our trips will continue as normal.
Here is a short report from our partner in Jordan:

"Dear partners,
A good day to you from Jordan!
Seen the recent events in the news about the middle east and the situation in Egypt and Tunesia, we like to inform you that there is no simular situation in Jordan.
We have a stable and democraticly chosen government and a well liked King.
The economical situation is also different in Jordan in comparison to Egypt and Tunesia.
There have been a few requested and approved demonstrations in Amman on Fridays after the prayer.
These are about the high petrol & food prices. The demonstration are held in an orderly manner with no rioting and with approval of the government and police.
We here in the south of Jordan, (Petra, Wadi Musa) haven’t noticed anything at all. Life goes on as normal.
We also do not expect an unstable political situation in the future.
So you can all still advise your guests that travelling to Jordan is safe.
We haven’t received any cancellations from guests, but we did receive some questions about this situation.
That is why we would like to inform you from our side."

Nice post. I learn something more difficult on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little bit one thing from their store. I’d favor to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a hyperlink on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
