Photo Friday: The Treasury, Petra

The Treasury - Petra

This Photo Friday of The Treasury in Petra is from Sherry Ott, who is volunteering in Jordan this month with GeoVisions.

Even though I’m in Jordan volunteering, the country is small and planning getaways to sight-see is quite simple. When you have the opportunity to travel, you have those moments…the moments where the dream becomes a reality. I’ve seen images of the Treasury in Petra many times, but I felt like I had to pinch myself when I was really standing in front of the massive ancient structure. It feels unreal.

At moments like this I like to sit down in a little secluded space, cross my legs and take it all in; let the reality sweep over me. The reality of Petra rushed through me like a tidal wave everywhere I looked. Massive, colorful, and…real.

What are some of your dream to reality moments?

In addition to her Volunteer Chronicles on Briefcase to Backpck, Sherry gets more in depth on her personal blog, OttsWorld. Check out updates from this week:

    Glad you finally made it. Sounds like the reality matched the dream or even exceeded it. Those are great travel moments! Hope you get to go back many times while you’re in Jordan.

    Thanks Jeff and Christy – it really was an amazing place – like a giant hiking playground. I’ll be writing about it in a week and have TONS of photos to share. Jordan has been such a huge surprise to me – and exceeded my expectations…even Petra!
