Petra – The City of Mysteries, Jordan – November 2017
When my Dubai bestie suggested going to Jordan to visit Petra – The City of Mystery and swim in the Dead Sea I went along with it because I wanted to get away. I’m not a huge Indiana Jones fan so I really had no idea what Petra was and the Dead Sea did sound intriguing but it wasn’t high up on my bucket list.
Eleven years ago I sat in TESOL class listening to my professor lecture on best practices and methods to teach English Language Learners. She gave anecdotes of her first-hand experiences while teaching abroad. I vividly remember sitting in the cold business building classroom of the FAU Boca campus when my heart skipped a beat and the seed was planted. Since then the far-fetched seedling of a dream sprouted roots and grew.
