Love the video Catherine! What an amazing journey and great stories as well! The photos look great splashed throughout the video. Very Impressive. I didn't do the trekking but I did have Petra at 5:30am one day along with Peter Potterfield, my assistant Bonnie Benacquista and Donna Yuen from Canada, and it was amazing! Alone in Petra to catch the sun rise on the rocks. The climb up the 800 steps to the Monestary was well worth the it, both exhilirating and breathtaking. An amazing and beautiful country I long to go back!!!
