  • Tel Aviv Today our Israel tour started. I must admit to being somewhat disappointed. First we drove out of Tel Aviv to the Latrun Trappist monastery which is located at a strongpoint of the road from Jaffa to Jerusalem. It is a Posted by JimShirl in 2019ExAd | Sep 17, 2019
  • Tel AvivOur tour of Israel convened with dinner today so we had the whole day to ourselves. We found a laundromat in the morning and did the necessary. Then we came back to the hotel, had pizza for lunch on the Posted by JimShirl in 2019ExAd | Sep 16, 2019
  • Istanbul to Tel Aviv Today was a travel day, so not much to report other than we got to Tel Aviv safely and are ensconced in Herod’s Resort Hotel By the Sea. Posted by JimShirl in 2019ExAd | Sep 15, 2019
  • Daydreaming on a Kibbutz in Israel[i](Note: Instead of one of my normal travelogues, I am putting in an article I wrote about my stay in Kibbutz Shoval in Israel. I spent several months there, working among the kibbutniks along with a dozen or so other Posted by world_wide_mike in Worldwidemike | Aug 9, 2019
  • Day 19I love travelling, but hate the end of trips and the long flight home... This morning I woke early and went down to farewell my fellow pilgrims who were flying out late morning to Toronto. They were not expecting to see me Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 17, 2019
  • Day 18Today was our last day together. My room at the Crowne Plaza was like a chimney sweep and I had not slept well the night before, so with Joel’s help I changed rooms (it took some effort). A king size Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 16, 2019
  • Day 15Our day started at 9:00 am today, so much slower than most. I was still awake early. A group of us headed out to walk the city wall (well part of it), and I enjoyed being out seeing the city from a Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 13, 2019
  • Day 14A slower day today. This morning we took part in an Archaeological Sifting exercise of dirt excavated from the Temple Mount. This was incredibly therapeutic and much more enjoyable than I had anticipated. It was also pretty significant in Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 12, 2019
  • Day 13Today was our final day with Hanna - our most excellent tour guide in Israel. She is a wonderful lady and we have been so blessed to have her. Her knowledge of scripture is amazing. When we got to Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 11, 2019
  • Day 12 Today we drove through the Kidron Valley, which separates the city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. We went to the steps where Jesus came to the temple to teach. Now, this was amazing. Walking on the same Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 10, 2019
  • Day 11This morning we left the Dead Sea and headed for Jerusalem. What a sight! Driving into Jerusalem was amazing - quite surreal, but amazing. Our first stop was the Mount of Olives. It is hard to comprehend all that Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 9, 2019
  • Day 10The word pilgrim in Hebrew means the ones who go up. That is us. On the bus this morning, our guide Hanna, gave us a condensed history of Israel over 4,000 years. I think I got most of it... Abraham Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 8, 2019
  • Day 9I am loving the heat! It was 39 at the Sea of Galilee. Yesterday (writing on Monday morning) we drove along the border of Israel and Jordan. It is easy to forget how big Australia is, until Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 7, 2019
  • Day 8Today we have spent by the water. This morning we went to Tel Dan to the River Dan. The water comes from the snow of Mount Hermon. It is one of the three tributaries that runs into the Jordan River. We Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 6, 2019
  • Day 7 This morning we drove through Cana on our way to Mount Precipice. There are numerous churches commemorating the turning of water into wine by Jesus. Mount Precipice was where people wanted to throw Jesus over the cliff. Magnificent views Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 5, 2019
  • Day 5Today started with a taxi ride to the airport with Speedy Gonzales. We went at some speed, taking only 20 minutes to get to the airport. Yesterday, the same ride took 45 minutes! It would be remiss of me Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 3, 2019
  • Day 4 A strange day really...transit days always are. 10 hours on an old cramped El Al flight from Bangkok to Tel Aviv. Not the best flight that I have had in a while. However, I arrived safely in Tel Aviv Posted by Cruicksie in Holy Land Tour | Jul 2, 2019

  • The Way of the CrossToday we went to the traditional places for the trial, death, and burial/resurrection of Jesus. I say the traditional places because none of these are known for certain and some are now known to be incorrect. We started Posted by dasafish in Fishers' Israel Trip | Jun 7, 2019
  • Miracles above and belowToday we started with a bus ride to the Elah Valley, where David confronted Goliath. Along the way our guide pointed out a collection of burned out and shot up vehicles left as a memorial along the side of Posted by dasafish in Fishers' Israel Trip | Jun 5, 2019
  • Jerusalem History Regarding the weather we’ve been experiencing – we’ve been told it is unusually hot. Our first day, the one in Netanya when we were here a day early, was the only “normal” day we’ve had since we got here. Posted by dasafish in Fishers' Israel Trip | Jun 4, 2019
