If you come to Amman between April and September, please make sure you are visiting Souq Jara on Fridays, 10AM to 10PM. It is a local bazar and helps local artists to sell their products. All handmade, all made in Jodan. Mostly, they only have instagram stores and no physical shop location. So it is a really good place to find a nice deal :)

Johanna went for the first time to the Circus. It was an absolute amazing experience. We were both so excited for 2 weeks. I think it was also the first time that a Circus stopped in Amman. Since we bought the tickets, Johanna asked me every single morning: "How many more nights?"

Johanna´s Graduation
Jordan · 03. Juli 2023
In Jordan, things are different. First, kids go to the pre-school, and then to kindergarden :) Sounds new to people from Germany at least - where it is the other way round (if toddlers go to a pre-school at all). However, in Jordan, Johanna completed her two years of pre-school now and she will move on to a kindergarden in September after summer break. This means: Leaving her classroom, leaving the teachers, leaving the institution.

Four Dinar for half an hour in a room full of cats. The idea sounds bizarre but the room is always crowded. No pre-booking needed, you can enter on the spot. Someone had this genius idea and now it totally works. The place is very, very clean and tidy...totally unexpected with so many cats in one room. It seems that they have a good life, though they get fed a lot. Including in your ticket is not only the cuteness of the cats but also: brushing, feeding, playing, cuddling. And for that the...

House Warming Gathering
Jordan · 13. Juni 2023
Six weeks had passed already, but I guess that is still a valid time frame to celebrate the house warming with your friends! So we celebrated the move eventually all together. From ground floor to roof top and the view is really amazing. For logistical reasons, there were two partys :) One with kids and one without....To summarize it short: The adults party was cleaned within 15 minutes. The kid´s party was given the title by my couchsurfer Natalie (who helped me so much preparing for it)...

Alles begann Anfang März an meinem Geburtstag. Meine liebe Freundin Dani hat mir einen Gutschein zur Teilnahme am 10 Kilometer Fun Run am Toten Meer geschenkt. Voller Vorfreude habe ich direkt mit em Training am nächsten Tag begonnen - und es völlig übertrieben. Danach musste ich erst einmal ein paar Tage Pause machen. Und dann habe ich erst einmal mit 6 Kilometern angefangen :). Das Training verlief gut doch auf die Hitze am Toten Meer kann man sich im Amman einfach nicht vorbereiten. Am...

Eine Bekannte von mir wird in einem Monat heiraten. Johanna und ich waren auf ihrer Henna-Part eingeladen. Dies ist eine Art "Junggesellinnen" Abschied unter Frauen. Eigentlich wird es kürzer vor der Hochzeit veranstaltet, doch da im Falle meiner Freundin Familie aus dem Ausland mitdabei sein wollte, fand es früher statt. In diesem Blog-Artikel erkläre ich, wie eine Henna Party abläuft und verrate weitere Insights :)

Aqaba - Toddler´s Paradise
Jordan · 06. Mai 2023
Yes, Aqaba deserves it. Aqaba deserves more than just a night at the beginning or end of a trip because Ryanair lands here. At a first glance, many people don't really like the small beach town. Jordan has only a few kilometers of Red Sea coastline and that is Aqaba. And then you hear people say, "More beautiful corals? Cheaper hotels? Gorgeous beaches? Everything on the other side..." But that's not fair. Aqaba is unique and has so much to offer. And Johanna is also enthusiastic about our...

2 years already in Jordan!
Jordan · 01. Mai 2023
Vor ziemlich genau zwei Jahren ging es für uns in ein unbekanntes Land, in dem wir nie zuvor waren. (So haben wir die Ausreise vorbereitet). Niemand wusste, was uns erwarten würde, wie der Tagesablauf aussehen wird, was unsere Freizeitaktivitäten werden und vor allem: Welche Menschen lernen wir kennen? Finden wir Freunde? (Lies über den allerersten Tag in Jordanien) Nach zwei Jahren fühlt sich das Leben hier so heimisch an, dass ich mich selbst mit Anstrengung kaum zurück versetzen kann,...

In a big guided group we hiked the highest mountain in Jordan, called Jabal Umm Adami and is located in Wadi Rum. This hike becomes more and more famous and I would like to share my experience and also give an overview of different offers and some ideas of what a hike might cost you.
