i love traveling "with" you! Linda

I agree completely. Any special trip or the like should be equated to an accent on an already beautiful life. I don't want to come off like the eager beaver of the group but to me, instead of the antique lamp this trip is for you, for me it is like landscaping my entire backyard and putting in an inground pool.
Yes, that excited. However, you have travelled much more than I have...maybe that is why I can hardly contain my excitement!
See you soon, :D

You've been to some amazing places alredy, and Petra looks like it will be equally amazing! I found this poem written by John William Burgon about Petra to share...

It seems no work of Man's creative hand,
by labour wrought as wavering fancy planned;
But from the rock as if by magic grown,
eternal, silent, beautiful, alone!
Not virgin-white like that old Doric shrine,
where erst Athena held her rites divine;
Not saintly-grey, like many a minster fane,
that crowns the hill and consecrates the plain;
But rose-red as if the blush of dawn,
that first beheld them were not yet withdrawn;
The hues of youth upon a brow of woe,
which Man deemed old two thousand years ago,
match me such marvel save in Eastern clime,
a rose-red city half as old as time.

Have a wonderful trip! I will look forward to seeing some photos on your blog!

Grace

enjoy!
