Aqaba, the gateway to Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and so much more. I did not travel to Aqaba when some of the others were shooting a movie there, so I missed Petra and had to endure hearing about it over and over again. It was on my Bucket list and I did get to go there many years...

London - critics number 1 restaurant, Restaurant Story Many critics say this is London's premiere restaurant, so we went to see what the fuss was about. 'Story' only seats 40 covers, you need a reservation, it will cost the national debt of a small town, but, boy is it a great night. Presenter of the cruise TV channel Doris Visits,...
