TraveLibro – One stop shop for travel

Times have changed. Earlier when I was only traveling and not documenting anything about my travels, I had to rummage through my photo albums and break my head to remember the vital information if I wanted to revisit the place or someone asked me anything about it.

Lessons I learnt from Bedouins

Bedouin. Till the time I visited Jordan, this word had conjured an image of mysterious desert-bound nomad, dressed almost like a Sheikh.

About 40% of Jordanians are Bedouins. I met few of them in Petra and Wadi Rum … some had camels or donkeys to take us around, some were guides and some other were businessmen. Their way of looking at life while still connected to roots are things to learn for anybody.
