I was working at an embassy in Damascus from 2003 until end of 2008, and I return once a year to Syria and Lebanon to maintain my contacts and to keep updated about the area regarding tourism updates. During my time in Damascus I travelled extensively through Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.
I fell in love with the old houses in Damascus and enjoyed the many wonderful experiences.
