I'm Taking a Trip - To Jordan! 

About a week ago, I decided to travel to Jordan. I leave a week from tomorrow, Friday, February 15th. I don't have a lot of time to plan for trips these days, so I just picked a place and I'm going. I'll read my travel guide on the plane but Amman and Petra are definite stops.

I fly out of Chicago on Turkish Airlines (thanks to my dad's travel agency) business class on Friday night to Istanbul. I fly overnight and land at 5:00 P.M. local time. My connection to Amman is after midnight - which means I spend 7 hours in the Istanbul airport and I'm OK with that. 

My favorite part of any trip is getting there. I love flying Turkish Air business class, the services is awesome and the food is great too. The CIP lounge in the Istanbul airport is great, it looks great and you meet the most interesting business people who are traveling from Europe to the Middle East. That's all I have for now but I will keep you posted on the details as they unfold.
