This page features the videos from our trip to Syria over Christmas and New Year 2008.

The road to Damascus actually started on a chilly morning in Amman...

After a quick stop in Damascus we were soon on the road again. This time across the desert on the road to Palmyra

After the oasis of Palmyra we headed back to the coast. We stayed in the pleasant city of Hama and used it as a base to explore Krak des Chevaliers, The lost cities and the Roman site at Afamea

Next up was the short trip north to Aleppo and its famous souk and citadel.

Here's the desert drive video edited for podcastsinenglish.com
