After sleeping under the Jordanian night skies in a Bedouin camp, I awoke to find my welcoming host still sleeping peacefully beside me.

    Before anything else, may I say I love this photo? I think I find him cute! lol. Did he appreciate it though? ;P I also used to take photos of people sleeping, well actually until now hehe. Did you two slept without a tent?

      Actually he really liked the photo when I showed it to him! I don’t think he minded the intrusion :p We slept outside under the stars along with the rest of my group – it was incredible 🙂

      Thanks Helen! Jordan was absolutely stunning for photography – I just wish I’d been blogging back then too!
