Hello, my name is Henk Jan

Short bio:

I have been living and working now for 10 years in this part of the world. This gave me already a lot of experience in the Arabic culture. Before coming here, I visited many countries in the world, but now Jordan is my ‘home’. Jordan is a very stable country in the Middle East, as it has been for many years now. Also, Jordan is a very rich country regarding culture and history. A country with many different faces and this fascinates me tremendously.

Imagine, you’ll find here the lowest point on earth, the salty Dead Sea that lets you float. Then we have beautiful mountains, Canyons, that will remind you of the Grand Canyon in Nevada if you have been there. A desert like Wadi Rum, where many famous movies were recorded and still frequently you can see film-crews coming here to record something. Then of course the fantastic UNESCO and World Heritage site of Petra, one of the 7 World Wonders!

And the wonderful thing is that we have so much more. Look at Amman, with the Citadel, the Roman Theatre, the Temple of Hercules. And Jerash and Ajloun with a very rich good preserved culture, that lets you feel like you step back in time! And last but not least, the cuisine of Jordan. Wow! If you like tasty food, you simply have to try the flavours that you will be given in the local restaurants!

This all is Jordan, and it's sure worth visiting!
