The Middle East is a region that has captured our hearts and souls. The hospitality, generosity and kindness of the people living in this ancient land is unimaginable, the ruins and crumbling sites are some of the oldest and most fascinating in the world and the food is flavourful and of great variety.
From the time you wake up in the morning to the last call to prayer in the evening, you will have experiences that will move you, change your life and make you realize that not everything we see and hear on the news is true. There’s nowhere in the world where we have felt more welcomed than in the Middle East. We traveled for 3 months in this enchanting land and will most definitely be back one day, hopefully soon.
This is part 1 of a 4 part series. Here we’ll showcase some of the fantastic faces of the people we encountered while backpacking through Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon.
The people of this region are some of the friendliest we’ve ever met! We couldn’t walk through a market, wait for a bus or wander through a silent desert without having local people come over and talk with us. We challenge you to spend a full day walking around and not be invited in for tea, dinner or just a friendly chat. Go, see for yourself.
