This is the second post from our Secrets of Egypt and the Nile trip. Actually this is the second day of our pre-cruise excursion to Jordan. You can catch up on our first day here.
This is the first post about our trip to Egypt with Ama's Secrets of Egypt and the Nile cruise. We decided to add Ama's pre-cruise extension to Jordan. In fact we added an extra day in Amman even before the extension started - an extension to the extension. That was a good decision. Our flight landed at 9 pm local time and because we had a long layover in Frankfurt, total travel time was close to 24 hours. Jordan is 7 time zones ahead of our normal east coast time zone. We splurged on business class which made the trip very tolerable. The key was access to the United / Lufthansa business class lounges which allowed us to shower and clean up in Germany before our 4 hour flight to Amman Lebanon. The flight from Newark to Frankfurt was easy, given the excellent business class seats on our 787. Still, it's a very long travel day.
We've already planned where we'll be New Year's day 2024! Sounds crazy but if you want to be on a river cruise in Europe, you have to think ahead. And that's what we've done. So if you want to travel with a travel agent and celebrate New Year's in a unique way, check out the trip we have planned.
Why do people use a travel agent? It's been a while since we've written about this, but we recently got an email that AmaWateways sent to all their clients. Perhaps you've gotten one as well. The subject line is "Top 3 reasons to use a Travel Advisor". So let's see what AmaWaterways says.
It's been six years since our first Joe Sixpack themed beer trip. This was our Tulips and Beer cruise on AmaWaterways April 2015. To celebrate, here's some pictures - just for fun. Our seventh trip is scheduled for 2022 - what a great way to start!
