I'm a well travelled lad and like to pack a lot (most people would say too much) into my trips. I live in Australia so any chance to get away needs to pack in a lot.
I have a 4-5 day window (Mon-Fri. possibly Sat) this month (Nov. 2011) to go to Israel. I really do want to see Petra in Jordan though, not bothered about anything else in Jordan. I had wanted to get to Egypt to see the Pyramids but with all that's happening I'd have to give that a pass.
I just love driving long distances on my holidays (used to Oz drining distances) so that's not a problem (2 hours is like a drive to the shops) and four hours sleep in cool too. Basically the show "The Amazing Race" was based on my holidays. Now I hope that does not offend anyone but...
...with a modus operandi like that, what would you guys suggest I can\should do with 4-5 days in Israel \ Jordan. I do want to see Jerusalem (Yad Vaschem, The Mount of Olives etc.), Tel Aviv, The Dead Sea possibly Nazareth and Masada and most definitely Petra.
Any advice or a running order suggestion ? I could fly into Tel Aviv and out of Amman if that helps.
