On January 11, 2019 I boarded a plane into extreme unknowns – an entire four months abroad in Amman, Jordan. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

My family was really sad for me to leave, but was also excited. They sent with me a frame of my town and a Homesick candle! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

1. One of my first adventures in Amman was a city tour to the Roman Amphitheatre and Citadel with Amideast. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

Me and my roommate Sophia explored the city the first few weeks. This photo was taken in Webdeih! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We also had lots of fun getting to know each other! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We found great photo spots, like these stairs on Rainbow Street! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We made so many new friends along the way. This was from a Friday breakfast with our friend Sinaan, his family, and their host students from Norway! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

Amideast had an excursion to Jerash and Ajloun! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

Our first group trip was to Aqaba and we went scuba diving!! It was a great weekend. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

In February, my family came to visit me which was amazing! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

I was so lucky to be able to introduce my family to my Jordanian family, like Mama Shireen. We had dinner at her house all together. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

Some of us went to Egypt for Spring Break, and it was amazing to see one of the Wonders of the World – the pyramids!! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

It was an experience I will never forget! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

For one of the long weekends, a group of us went to Beirut for one of my friend’s 21st birthday! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

It was so beautiful we even had a day trip in Byblos, one of the oldest cities in the world. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We also had another excursion to Petra through Amideast, this was taken at the Monastery, which was so worth the trek! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

This is the view of the Treasury at Petra from up high. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We also spent a night in Wadi Rum and got to see where the movie The Martian was filmed. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

Our last Amideast excursion was to the Dead Sea, we stayed at the Hilton. It was amazing! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We also had a traditional Jordanian wedding hosted by our Arabic professors. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

We had so much fun with the Dead Sea mud. Photo credit: Arguin, 2019

Last but not least, I spent the last few weeks here having an amazing time with my friends, and my giant host family. I have loved getting to know each and every one of them and will miss them all so much! Photo credit: Arguin, 2019
