My husband and I did the save-our-pennies, quit-our-jobs, and move-to-the-Middle-East thing. Now I get to write about things like cat attacks, adult pre-school and Bedouin weddings. It's fun.
Learning to live in a foreign country with a different language, culture, traditions and way of life certainly has its fair share of challenges both frustrating and funny. Join me in my adventures, laugh and cry with me as I share my new life with you from everyday moments to classic only in the Middle East moments.

My blog is heavy on photos. As I travel round the kingdom, I make photos and share them along with a description of the site. From time to time I also post about news and current events.
I'm a wife of an ingenious guy and a mom of two kids who has been transplanted from the Mid-West to the Middle East. We've lived here on and off for 7 years and are still learning new things everyday! I hope you enjoy a chuckle with me and get a picture of the delightful, beautifully different Arab culture that we have the privilege of living in everyday.

Stories from Jordan is about the journey and adventures our family is experiencing in our new land of Jordan. I plan to keep my family updated with our day to day activites with the use of this blog.

I also want to use this blog to inform those who wish to be informed about the country of Jordan and its people.
As the saying goes ‘where I lay my head is home’. Jordan has been our home for the past year and a half. Having moved from the UK, we have had to adjust to life in Amman. This blog is to help those who venture on a similar path. So why the name ‘wasapninjordan’?

Hence the name.
