So we were married in the continental US in 2012. Unfortunately, we were still living apart at the time (My wife in New York, me in Tokyo). Also, we had just burned through a lot of our savings and vacation days on the wedding. It would have been a bit sad to split and back to Tokyo/NY right after the wedding, so we sneaked in a quick 4.5 day trip to Hawaii.
I spent a night and a day in Amman, ahead of driving down to Petra and Wadi Rum. I didn't really have much planned or considered for Amman, but I tried to make the most of my short time there.
My first time to Dubrovnik was a couple years before Game of Thrones made it even more popular than it already was. I visited again many years later, and it was interesting to see how things had changed.
