There was a time of pandemic when travel wasn’t at its best and jungle cruises were starting to be deeply missed.
Then, and just then, Emily Blunt, as Lily, the brave botanist, decided to hire the most awkward skipper (played by, the one and only, Dwayne Johnson), take a crumbling steamboat and go down the mighty Amazon in a journey of exploring its hidden depths. And heights.
And I went to watch. Because cinemas were missed too.
A 20st century botanist, Dr. Lily Houghton, leaves London for an Amazonian adventure with the thought of changing the future of medicine. Her mind is set to find, at any costs, the ancient tree of Lagrimas de Cristal, whose petals have the power to heal almost any disease in the world.
7 days in Jordan, an end of February dream trip with the most unexpected itinerary, starting from the depths of the Wadi Rum desert to the heights of Mount Nebo, through the ancient carved city of Petra and upstream the Jordan River, following closely the mystical paths of Christianity.
Even if I tried to plan this holiday to the smallest detail, the actual 7-day trip to Jordan, exceeded any expectations by far. Jordan is considered to be an expensive country. But with a moderate budget for two people and a rented car, we managed to balance and enjoy all that Jordan had to offer from South to North and back. In one week only!
