Made up of 16 countries, the Middle East is probably the least-traveled region in the entire world. Most likely due to decades of wars and turmoil. However, there are amazing destinations for travelers throughout. Jordan was my first destination in the Middle East to travel to and is still one of my favorite trips. Seeing Petra for the first time, scuba diving in the Red Sea, walking the streets of Amman, and off-roading through the Wadi Rum desert was such a magical and incredible experience.
Often exotic describes unusual things: An exotic animal. A beach house on some distant island…the kind you can only reach by a small plane or boat, some kind of secret password, or invitation only. Many exotic things are foreign, different, and often, alluringly. Those are the things I am describing here: adventures that you really want to do in your lifetime. But I have done way too many, so I will have to split this storyboard up. #Bucketlist

These hidden gems can only stay hidden for so long!
