The trip where I got myself pushed to its limits and beyond, motivated by my bro Zikry Kholill. This what happens when two co founders decide to go for a short fun adventure, Yes! we've been there several times before but, it's obviously we just can't have enough of this magical place. Coolest part where we met a lot of nice people, well... mainly they were encouraging me to climb up the 1000 stairs to the monastery :P and of course we took the chance to talk to some people about Incitement world wide and what we Incitement Jordan are doing here ;) So whenever you get the chance to visit Jordan I highly recommend you guys to visit the wonderful Petra.
