who are we?

 We are a small, women-founded and operated travel company specializing in intimate group travel to destinations that are often ‘misunderstood’. We believe that travel makes us better human beings. We like to travel slow, connecting with people we meet along the way. We create authentic local experiences that spark a deeper understanding of people & places we love.

ⵆ JOURNEYs TO JORDAN
2018 - 2019

To date, we’ve done several incredible journeys to Jordan, where we explored the country from the north to the south, floated in the Dead Sea, hiked in the Lost Kingdom of Petra, and rode camels into the sunrise in Wadi Rum.

WHY TRAVEL

WITH US?

IMG_2641.JPG

YOU ALREADY ARE AN INTREPID TRAVELER. WHY JOIN US?

Many destinations we travel to often get a bad rep. You want to explore these places,

but perhaps you stop short for safety concerns, not enough information,

or lack of infrastructure for independent travel. This is where we come in.

Working with expert organizations on the ground, we create small-group journeys

that enable you to come, see, and experience these amazing places, while we do all the planning.

Yulia Denisyuk

Yulia is the founder of NOMⴷD + JULES and a freelance travel photographer and writer. She was born in Kazakhstan, grew up in Estonia, and now lives in the United States. Yulia has traveled the world extensively and turned to a travel journalism career after spending more than ten years in large organizations — first as a Navy Sailor, then as a brand manager at Fortune 500 companies. Yulia's work appears in Lonely Planet, Afar magazine, National Geographic Traveller, BBC Travel, and others. Yulia started NOMⴷD + JULES because of one question: Is it safe to travel to Jordan now?

 

karin brunby

Karin is from Sweden and has lived in the United Kingdom for a decade before moving to Jordan in 2014. She now lives in Amman with her twin sons and a Jack Russell puppy.

I love the dramatic landscapes Jordan offers. You can drive along the highway with spectacular cliffs to your right and flat desert on your left. The sheer variety never seizes to amaze me. And wherever you go you can count on two things: to be met with hospitality and to feel a connection with our shared ancient ancestry — history breathes in Jordan.

You will have a magical, awe-inspiring, unforgettable experience with memories to savor from the trip of a lifetime.
