Im Rashed and I born and grew up in wadi rum desert. Im a Bedouin tour guide for more than 4 years. Wadi Rum, is one of the most beautiful place in all of Jordan! We have big mountains and dunes. As bedouin we used to live from our animals that we grew in desert. Now with tourism we have a second source of income for my family. I’m welcoming tourist in our village and Im showing them around. My tour also include sometime sleep outside in the desert or in Bedouin camps. Because we have more and more tourist coming I need some support to welcome them and also help with websites. You don’t need to be specialist, but with basic knowledge of computer it would be a great help. As a host I will welcome you to my family home and show you true Bedouin hospitality.
