Feast: a photography & eating expedition across Jordan – Petra, Dead Sea, Red Sea, markets, Bedouin camel trek, & eat like a sheik!
This trip is for travellers, writers, photographers and foodies.
The first time I went to Jordan I mountain biked, slowly, and knew after biking from the Dead Sea to the Red Sea what I wanted to see more of, and what I wanted to see less of, and one thing I wanted to see less of was my bike. So this Jordan journey is a no bikes but yes to camels and jeeps & hot air balloons, expedition with cameras.Hope You can Join the Feast March 2014!
I’ve invited my favourite food photographer to lead our photographic adventures and share a lifetime of tips, tricks & technique. You have probably seen his images displayed on TV’s Food Network cooking shows or in publications as varied as Chatelaine, Spa Magazine, or Harper Collins cookbooks–and most definitely in ads–he’s the one you can blame for making you crave Absolut Vodka, Kahlua, gnawing chops,
spinach filo wraps, that dew dripping glass of gin, Florida oranges, late night fast food at Wendy’s or McDonald’s (blame him for that), or test driving a Mercedes—that’s Christopher Campbell’s fault too.
I’ve asked Rakan Mehyar of Terhaal in Jordan to design an epic eating fest and expedition and he has. Rakan received his training at the Cesar Ritz in Switzerland and thus is the perfect man to arrange our activity packed adventure which includes sniffing our way through the saffron heaped markets of Amman, camel trekking and camping with Bedouin, one handed dining in a local family’s home after exploring mind-blowing Petra, floating over desert in a hot air balloon and floating like a balloon in the Dead Sea, and if you want to (and I will again) you can puff on the argeela, aka the hubbly-bubbly, or hookah.

CBC Radio Canada International: “Some writers are famous for writing love poetry—Pablo Neruda, for instance. Others, like Scott Adams, have managed to pin to the page the preposterousness of corporate America. Rohinton Mistry is known for his poignant portraits of Mumbai; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle changed the face of detective novels by creating Sherlock Holmes. But no one can describe an unfamiliar bathroom quite like Kirsten Koza.”
