Syria, Jordan, Egypt

Hi, we are in Istanbul now and having got our Syrian Visas are heading that way. I expect to be in Turkey for another couple of weeks and then about 2 weeks in Syria and the same for Jordan, any one around fancy meeting up for a "coke" or anyone with info on must see places in Syria and Jordan.

Syria : During your entry they will request around 60 $ for insurance.Refuse it ,because the actual amount is about 40 $. Places that should be seen are Crac de Chavaliers ( ~ 100 km.after Lazkiye ,on the left hand ) and Palmyra.
Jordan :Petra (magnificient !! - dont miss it.The entrance tickets are normally 30$/person but there is most probably %50 discount due present situtaion.And Mt.Nebo.If your into diving ,you should visit Akabe.

If you need any detailed info just say so. I was there in April ,so the infos are fresh.

Definately agree with Crac de Chevaliers, we've been on the road for over twelve months - Cape Town 2 OZ (currently in Bangkok) - and 'the Crac' has to be one of the most awesome attractions in the world.

I rode around the Mediterranean one month ago.
Remember, to reach Egypt take the ferry from Aqaba to Nuweiba: if you enter in Israel you can't cross neither Syria nor Lybia. That's mean you can't go back home, since there are non ferry connection from Egypt to any other country.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
