OT: Anyone been to Jordan?
 
And if so, is it safe?

If you go on the US state department site it says "yes, al qaeda is active", "yes, stay vigilant" or "yes, try to avoid leaving the cities". Then again, it says similar things about Bali too.

My buddies are doing a trip that involves some desert camping and what not. When I talk to Lebanese and Jordanian friends they all say it's completely safe.

Definitely makes sense to post this on a Denver Broncos message board but what the hey... other than cougar life this is the only board I visit.

Of all the Middle Eastern states with dictators hasn't Jordan always been the most stable of the bunch?

Don't they have some great Summarian(? or really, really, dawn of humanity type old) temples there, I think Syria does too but you might want to stay away from there.

Don't they shoot a lot of Big Budget Hollywood movies there?

Good luck with your Beheading Goals in 2013.

Yes

They shoot a ton of movies, especially at Petra. I was watching Indiana Jones over xmas and noticed they shot there.

First, lol @ "most awesome desert ever".

Btw, it was in the 80s last week.

Most guys your age are taking women to tropical locations instead of hitting up a desolate wasteland with a bunch of dudes, but whatever floats your boat man...

Jordan is pretty safe, probably not quite as safe as Kuwait but remain vigilant and don't act like a fat, arrogant American and you should have a great time.

Yeah, wasnt there a dude here that went to Faguna Beach with all his buddies instead of some cool Spring Break place? I think the experience is cool as long as you 1) are safe and 2) have already done the places that rage ie. Rio and New Olreans. Jordan sounds like a complete opposite trip. They do have some pretty girls there so you might have that working for you.

I'm either going to a festival filled with sluts in Croatia or a bachelor party in Stockholm later this year so my balls will survive provided they're not hacked off by angry terrorists.

So basically it's "go, have fun and there's a tiny chance someone will **** with you." I'm just nervous about that tiny chance. Got a week to decide.

Go for it. If we dont see your posts after the trip, we can assume you are dead and won't be getting the Broncos every week in NY...or at least you won't be telling us about it. :yayaya:

I guarantee you I will have Sunday Ticket in atheist heaven but will still find a way to post about coverage maps for NY vicariously THROUGH YOUR GUILT.

How long are you going? And if you're going to Jordan you can link up Israel/Egypt. Depends on how much time you have.

bombay 01-21-2013 02:38 PM

The queen is an American woman, right?

Cool story.

Tombstone RJ 01-21-2013 02:44 PM

don't be like those tards who were backpacking is Iraq and accidentally crossed over into Iran and then were taken prisoner... lol at tards like that. One day you are in Jordon site seeing, the next day you are in Damascas with a bag over your head and and an AK pressing against the back of your skull.

Wait? People travel to get laid? But why?

There are more than enough vaginas right here. I assure you.

Meck77 01-21-2013 03:20 PM

Camping in Jordan? Huh....Did you score a lost treasure map or something? I'm more on Rev's wave length. Go to Costa Rica or something. Want an adventure off the beaten path and the most beautiful women in the world. UKRAINE!

I heard some people went all the way to Amsterdam to almost get laid.

broncosteven 01-21-2013 03:52 PM

You guys almost make me wish I had youth, health, and Money shooting out my anus so I could almost get laid in Europe, the Middle East, and South America.

Jordan is amazing. Been there many times. Amman is like any other big city with both the good and bad--keep an open mind. Its safe, but like any other place in that region, be on your toes and vigilant. No real issues to report, however. Lots to see and Petra is a wonder of the world. If you can make it to Aqqaba in the south, please do so. Well worth the effort. Have fun, Im envious and would go back in a second.

orange skier 01-21-2013 06:48 PM

Jordan is a great place to visit....we drove in from Israel.....an Israeli taxi took us to the border, and we had a Jordanian taxi take us into Amman. Petra is very much a must see.
There are some great roman ruin cities up north. Jordan is very safe....every hotel and restaurant has armed guards. Much like our country will soon. Lebanon is also fun to visit. Have a great time.
