Lately, I've been interested to revisit Amman, if only due an episode of Ainsley Harriott's (British singer/chef) travel-food show.
Death Defying journey, in Jordan? God forbit you go to Libya, Syria or Irak.

Jordan is very safe. I've been there 6 times now and in all have rented a car and driven myself except the first time with a guide. Drove through towns in the middle of absolute no where and never had an issue.
