Introduction

This website offers an introduction to the country of Jordan. It includes detailed information and advice for the independent traveller, and a description of the everyday life of some of the Bedouin and the village people there, with stories and anecdotes from my personal experiences illustrating the way that they live. I hope that you will enjoy them, there are some more on the way.

Website description

There are six separate sections.

There is a general summary on the left here, but for a full list of the material available in each section, it is necessary to consult the section index, given in capital letters on the navigation bar on the left or from links on each page.

Comments and suggestions

I owe a big BIG thank you to Nadim al Twal who has designed the new look for "Jordan Jubilee". He is a very successful graphic designer who was kind enough to take the time to do this for us all. If anybody wants to get in touch with him with a new commission I shall be more than happy to pass on your message!

I hope that you will send me an email if you have any comments on this site, and especially if you find any gaps or false information. Any suggestions about anything at all are welcome, although I don't promise to act on them. I should also be interested in any "feedback" - comments (favourable or otherwise) on people or places I have mentioned in these pages. My email address is jordanjubilee@yahoo.com
