Palmyra and Ancient Syria


I've always loved the look of old photos during the early age of discovery and the nature of archaeology. Unfortunately, I don't like getting dirty or being hexed with a death curse upon entering a pharaoh's tomb, otherwise this would've been my career of choice for sure. Here are a few shots from the ancient Greco-Roman city of Palmyra which was a crucial stop for travelers crossing the Syrian desert in antiquity. I felt a little like Indiana Jones and those travelers, following their same route as I made my way through Syria to Jordan. Digs and discoveries still continue to this day, isn't that so interesting?

Now that you mention it, I say it's time for a female Indiana Jones! I've always said you should consider a career as an archaeologist.

Hi there Lorena, My name is Angel I am a good friend of Maurenice and a fellow world traveller as well :)
This page definitely caught my attention since after visiting 55 countries I have never been to Syria and wanted to see if I could pick your brain on it. Great fotos! So saaaaad what's going on now there. Isn't Petra just amazing! I did it in 2007....loved it. Kenya, Tanzania and Kathmandu are on my list for 2013 and I just returned from Ethiopia and Rwanda. Loved em both.
Great site. Keep on seeing the world! :)
