Umm Qais

Jordan is full of Roman sites within a short drive of Amman. Around 70 miles north, along the Syrian border, is a site called Umm Quais. It is far less known than Petra, meaning there weren’t many tourists when we visited in December.

The city is in the hills overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

Sea of Galilee

Some day I’d like to be able to visit Syria and visit the Sea of Galilee up close.

I'm an engineer, a veteran, and an avid traveler. I agree with Robert Louis Stevenson - "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."
