Living in Jordan as Expat

This website is about living in Jordan as Foreigner. We (my wife, son, and me) are from Europe and currently living in Amman, the capital of Jordan. Our stay is planned for two years and we are here since October 2016. I will share plenty of information that might be interesting for anybody, who is planning to live and work in Jordan or already residing here. I have already lived in Jordan for one year from 2008 to 2009, so have seen most of the touristic sites and am quite familiar with the country. I am expressing my views as an international expat living and working here, so I am neither a local nor a typical tourist or student, although many things might apply to the other, too. The site is an ongoing project and more content will be added as we go along.
