Mid-morning on day five of our road trip we began our drive up the windy route through the hills toward the historical city of Madaba, where I (Albert) served as a Peace Corps Volunteer. With the Dead Sea receding in the distance behind us, my excitement grew. I had been looking forward to returning to Madaba since I left nearly 8 years ago.
Lebanon is of course so much more than Beirut. If you have the time during your visit we highly recommend you travel outside of the bustling capital. During our recent trip to Lebanon we opted for a guided day trip with Lebanon Tours to Anjar, Baalbek and Chateau Ksara all in the Beqaa Valley.
