TRAVEL DIARY: AMMAN


(Photos taken by myself)

What I'm wearing: (Peplum top: Zara, Lace Blouse: Zara, Sequin Jacket: Zara, Purse: Zara, Shoes: Zara, Pants: Asos)


As avid readers of roxthefox since inception, you may recall that last Christmas I went all Julia Roberts (a la Eat Pray Love) and travelled to the Middle East in a quest to find thyself and explore the meaning of life. Instead, I found Pizza Chips.

The 2.5 week vacation included an exploration of Jordan, Jerusalem and Istanbul. Needless to say, this trip changed my entire perspective of life. In fact, the trip was so profound that it caused me to take a 2.5 month break from my blog, which was already in its infancy, and caused me to re-evalute life. Alas, it wasn’t long after that I found myself sucked back into the vortex of the shallow, self-absorbed, non-sentimental North American society, which ultimately led to my return to blogging, and subsequently, your lives were once again complete.

Five months later, I have finally gotten the opportunity to share some of my trip photos with you. Now, I won't share all of the pictures from the entire trip because we're heading into summer, and it would not be appropriate, as a fashion blogger, to post winter looks, right? Right. But I shall still post a few, only to honors those readers with reverse flushing toilet capabilities (see: Australia), who are currently enjoying Fall in their respective hemisphere.

So without further ado, stop no. 1: Amman, Jordan. After nearly 30 hours of soul numbing travel time, my sisters (photographed above in black and yellow attires) and I finally arrived in Jordan to discover a fairly flat and surprisingly green (for December anyway) landscape. Hailed as the capital city of Jordan, Amman is most famously known for its Roman ruins and the amphitheater. I maintain that, if you've driven in a Middle Eastern country, and have made out alive, you have sufficiently cheated death, a la Final Destination (3D of course!) and therefore, have performed one of the most dangerous stunts in the world. There are no road rules, no stop lights, no concept of traffic lanes, and horns ablazing.  A world of chaos, so different than my own, yet so enthralling.

The Amphitheater in Amman was what the Acropolis wasn't: overwhelming. Amman was sieged by various powers of civilizations, including the Romans, who left behind many beautiful monumental ruins in the city. The theatre was built during the reign of Antonius Pius and was one of the most exhilaration experiences to face ancient humanity and explore this untapped treasure. This led to a great length of contemplation on by behalf (see photographs of me contemplating above).  

The downside? The food was terrible. Sorry guys, I want to be inclusive, I really do, but my taste buds are whiny, high-maintenance bitches that are only satisfied with food of the spicy variety. I found myself indulging in the said Pizza Chips for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I believe this package of potato goodness contained all the answers that I was searching for. So much so, that I harassed Lays Arabia for 3 months after returning to Canada to mail me the said potato chips. How could God introduce the most delicious snack in my life, only to take it away from me due to geographical barriers? Long story short, Lays Arabia caved in to my desires, and the chips are now making their way to Canada.

Between exploring the beautiful Roman ruins, and experiencing a new culture,  Amman was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. Although, it was probably was not the wisest idea to walk through a crowded Souk in printed jacquard pants, and sequin jackets in a modest Middle Eastern city.  This sparks an entire 'Inappropriate Outfits for the Middle East' series, where printed pants, sequins, runway pant suits and capes galore! And guys, I don't normally pose like I've got scoliosis or a hernia in my vacation photos, but I was fully aware that these would end up on my blog at some point, so I had to adhere to the standard.

Although this was a trip of the soul-searching variety, one must always maintain chicness. Come on, we can still continue to have pensive and philosophical monologues in historical and spiritual cities whilst wearing printed jacquard pants, peplums and sequin jackets, right? Right.

  20. Roxy, I so admire you! I'm surprised you didn't have to cover up from head to toe there! The ruins are just breathtaking. The pictures you and your sis took were breathtaking. Both of you are so gorgeous doll. I LOVE your outfit! You always have such pizzazz! Gorgeous yellow jacket your sister is wearing. I'm glad you went. Traveling really opens your eyes to things and can change your perspective.

  21. Oh great, now I want chips. And it's already past midnight around here, so there's absolutely NO way to get some. On another note, I always love to travel and take a break from all my shallowness, but my fear of becoming a lazy dresser always makes me go back to my old ways. (Does that make sense? I really should go to sleep.)
    And because I am too tired to write another comment, I just wanted to let you know your post about palazzo pants inspired me to get my own. And I totally LOVE them. Thank you very much! :)

  29. Thoughtful reflection and the wearing of sequins are not mutually exclusive - I`ve had some of my deepest thoughts while wearing ball gowns. Just saying. In all seriousness, though, this trip looks like it was an absolutely amazing experience, in spite of the food, which, I must say, I`ve noticed tends to be sub par in countries that don`t get a huge amount of tourists. Portugal was the same. Beautiful place, but the only palatable food was the custard tarts :)

  41. These photographs are amazing...that place really looks breathtaking!!!

    That is just what traveling should be I think...an overwhelming experience...or at any rate, something different. I still do hope that I will get the chance to travel a lot some day but at least I know every inch of the country that I live in (however small it might be).

    and..."we can still continue to have pensive and philosophical monologues in historical and spiritual cities whilst wearing printed jacquard pants, peplums and sequin jackets"....Amen to that sister! That is some quotable material right there...

    P.S.: Your pants agree GORGEOUS.

  49. Spectacular photos! Amman looks so rich in culture, sorry to hear the food was no good, it looks great in the pictures - I'm a big fan of dips and bread. Must also say your outfit was perfect against the setting, those trousers in particular!!

  60. Wooow! these photos are so so amazing! I'm stuthing to be able to travel thnned by the beauty of this amphitheatre! What a privilege and exciting thing to be able to travel the Middle East! I've never been out of Germany much, but I can imagine totally relate to such a trip being a life-changing trigger to reconsider certain views on life! I wish i can go on such a journey myself someday.

    ReplyDelete
  61. You look gorgeous in these, and the scenery's definitely lovely. I'm hoping I'll be able to study abroad in the Middle East at some point, though I definitely recognize that I'll need to tone down my dressing style... It might be very weird to go a significant period of time without short skirts, but I do want to cement some sort of fluency in Arabic. (And I want to see all the amazing places that are over there...) Thank you for sharing these!

    Secondly - I can't believe you didn't like the food. My boyf is from the Middle East and when I visited his family, dudeeee I came back FAT. All I did was eat and sleep. The eat some more. It was good good good.
    Admittedly, I was in Alexandria mostly - perhaps Egypt is the middle eastern food hub?

  113. Wow, you always look so stylish, elegant and beautiful, even during a trip! I loved your outfit, especially the pants! I know what you mean by soul-searching... I have been doing this for a while, and can you believe, I think I know what I like, but let's say that what I like is what I need, but it involves hurting people... I don't have the courage... I am glad you felt so good and refreshed, I sometimes find the same when I am away of the blogosphere too! I looooved your pictures as usual, they are always amazing - everything, you and your outfits and makeup, location, all! Sorry I didn't comment before, I was very jet lagged last week, but now things are normal again!

  114. Thank you so much for sharing these photos! I grew up traveling with my family and have lived in Belgium, France, Portugal, and Africa for brief amounts of time. I would love to go to the Middle East someday in the future, and your posts have really inspired me to make a trip! And of course, you look stunning in all of the photos!

  115. both driving in mexico and egypt scared me senseless. but egypt was the worst i have seen. the constant horns, the lack of using headlights at night, watching pedestrians "bumped" out of the way with cars whilst crossing the road - pretty terrifying. a friend i made while there was hit and her tooth knocked out and people just kept honking while the driver got out to help her.

    these pictures are just breathtaking. i do not know much about jodan so the roman occupancy was new info for me. i loooove the photo of you and your sister with your arms around each other, you framed that one right? ; )
