Walking As Far as Possible

So I haven't had a lot of time to post stuff, and I can catch up later, but here's a fun story from this weekend.

We were sleeping at the Beadouin camp at Wadi Rum in the south of Jordan, and we had some time to explore. Our campsite was against a mountain, and then there was just a massive amount of desert in the other direction.

So, we turned towards the desert, and literally decided to walk as far as we could "that way". And so we did. We walked for about forty minutes just in one direction, and finally decided that we were going to walk to this mountain across the desert that looked close, but we knew was far away.  We walked and walked and walked to this mountain, got there, took pictures, and walked back. Across the desert. We were looking for a ten minute walk maybe, but we took a little long, and the sun went down, and we ended up being gone for over an hour and a half, just walking in the desert. It's a really cool feeling to literally decide to walk as far as you can, and actually do it. Especially when the limit is a literal mountain in the middle of the desert. This makes me think of Michaeline, and the summer bucket list. This one? Check.
