Looking for travel inspiration for your next vacation? Take a look at my series of reasons to visit Jordan. They will surprise, excite and make you want to go there. In this one: Ajloun Castle.

High on top of a hill with 360 degree views is the 12th Century Ajloun Castle fortress in Jordan. This ancient fort defended the area from attacks including the Crusades.

It is an impressive structure with a small museum full of artefacts from the long history of the castle. On top are glorious views across a very fertile part of Jordan

At the entrance was a friendly man brewing and selling tea and coffee out of gorgeous pots.

I grew up in Zimbabwe, but I have been based in London since 1987. My travel life spans more than three decades and that includes more than 95 cruises. In 2005, I launched Tips for Travellers to make it easy and fun for people to discover, plan and enjoy incredible cruise vacations. And the rest, as they say, is history.
