Ancient Walks: Petra – Al Siq To Treasury In Jordan
Petra is a famous archaeological site in Jordan’s southwestern desert. Dating to around 300 B.C., it was the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom. Accessed via a narrow canyon called Al Siq, it contains tombs and temples carved into pink sandstone cliffs, earning its nickname, the “Rose City.” Perhaps its most famous structure is 45m-high Al Khazneh, a temple with an ornate, Greek-style facade, and known as The Treasury.

Walks: Dean Village In Edinburgh, Scotland (4K)
Dean Village is a peaceful village on the Water of Leith, Edinburgh’s largest river. Founded during the twelfth century by the Canons Regular of Holyrood Abbey, it is also known as the Water of Leith Village.
Dean Village (dene means “deep valley” in Scots) was a prosperous hamlet for over 800 years. In the past, the area had eleven working mills on the strong currents of the city’s river.
Trade in Dean Village diminished and the village soon fell into decay and abandonment especially during the second half of the twentieth century. Ten years later, the greenness, tranquillity and proximity of the hamlet to the city centre made this area extremely popular and plans to redevelop it were put into place. It quickly became one of the most sought-out residential parts of Edinburgh.
