Jordan is a special place for many reasons. One of them is the level of trust, faith and goodwill people frequently display towards each other, whether friend or stranger.
Amman, Jordan–How can I describe the sensation and experience of packing your life into a medium suitcase, a small duffel and a backpack, hopping on a plane and moving indefinitely to a foreign country?
Saying goodbye was emotionally brutal, bearable only because returning to Amman as a journalist (I studied here during college) is so exciting and a move I’ve wanted to make for nearly two years. Still, handling such conflicting emotions is exhausting, so despite my sadness at leaving my family and friends, finally boarding the plane to Jordan was almost a relief.
