this one! I started the day with an early morning coffee in bed as Allen was off to work at 7.30am. The kids then made me pancakes and we had a very relaxed morning with Abi making cakes. We had to unpack the last few boxes as the company came to pick them up on my birthday! So I had a relax on our roof terrace until Allen came back around lunch time. He had got his work car so we opened my presents, had lunch and then had cake - all on the roof terrace.
Once the boxes had gone we headed off to the Dead Sea. We stayed in an amazing hotel, we have since heard that it is the best hotel in Jordan. We could not complain about a thing, and that is an achievement as Allen always has some gripe! We had cooling strawberry towels handed to us as we laid by the pool, someone cleaned my sunglasses as I lay there and we also were given watermelon on sticks to enjoy by the pool. We had interconnecting rooms that opened up onto a huge pool, our terrace lead down to the pool area, there were at least 5 pools to choose from. The 2 meals we had were excellent and the champagne buffet breakfast was brilliant. No call to prayer so I slept through the night too!
So we were all thoroughly spoilt for the weekend. On our return we had been invited around for drinks at someone who works in the Embassy here. I now have a list of restaurants and bars to try out. We ordered a curry from one of their recommendations tonight and it was delicious - eaten up on the roof terrace.
This coming week I will hopefully be able to start driving although we now have a taxi number to use, taxi's have refused to take us anywhere so far - apparently they are not keen on picking up white women. Luckily we can walk to most things so not really a problem. I do want to take the kids to the water park, will see if I manage this week.
Definitely have space for people to visit so book those flights.
