Marhaba & Ahlan wa sahlan!
In April of 2016 my friend and I decided to take a weeklong trip to Jordan. Little did I know that 10 months later I would pack up all of my belongings into two suitcases and move my life there.
Originally from the Bay Area, California, I have been away from “home” since I was 17 years old. Santa Barbara, Madrid, Girona, Barcelona, Accra and Bangalore have all been places I’ve spent time living.
I’m now adding Amman to the list and invite you all to follow my adventures in learning a new language and culture while I eat, drink and stay active in the Jordanian capital.
Update: I’m not living full time in Amman, but it’s still a city close to my heart and a place we spend summers. I try to keep the blog as updated as possible, but if you see anything that needs a refresh or correction, do let me know in comments or by email. If you’d like to write for myammanlife.com, connect with me so we can make it happen!
