Europe these days is even hotter than the Levant and we are no Rothschilds, so we decided to stay in the area.
We took a package deal from Arkia and flew from Tel Aviv to Eilat and crossed the border to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to Aqaba.
We stayed at the Kempinski hotel which is in one word amazing. A great staff and located on the shore of the Gulf of Aqaba and Eilat.

Did I mention the great food and the kind Jordanian people?
