Israel (December 2007)  
Posted by Richard on Saturday 23rd February 2008 at 06:29 PM

We spent Christmas and the New Year with Liz, Paul and the boys in Tel Aviv. This was our second trip to Israel and we managed to see a few of the sites we missed on our first stay.

The highlights included the Dead Sea, Masada, Bethlehem ... and seeing my nephews, of course! ;-)

Charles de Gaulle Airport   
Posted by Richard on Sunday 24th February 2008 at 04:29 PM

You may wonder why a whole page has been devoted to a Parisian airport? Well, we did spend two days there! Click here to view this Page



Christmas and New Year   
Posted by Richard on Sunday 24th February 2008 at 04:32 PM

We eventually arrived in Tel Aviv on Christmas Eve. Any later and Liz wouldn't have had any parsnips for Christmas dinner. Unfortunately, Father Christmas had delivered most of our presents to Knaphill, so the boys found pretty slim pickings under Liz's tree. :-( Click here to view this Page



The Dead Sea   
Posted by Richard on Sunday 24th February 2008 at 04:26 PM

On Boxing Day we left Tel Aviv and headed past Jerusalem and Jericho, across the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea resort of Ein Bokek. Floating in the Dead Sea was an incredible experience, but only if you like salt on your chips! Click here to view this Page



Ein Bokek

We stayed the night at the Moriah Classic Dead Sea in Neve-Zohar, a few miles down the road from the centre of Ein Bokek. Very reasonable rates thanks to our tour guide - Paul! Click here to view this Page



Masada

Overlooking the Dead Sea is Masada, the last bastion of the Jewish Revolt against the Romans that ended with almost a 1000 rebels taking their own lives in 70AD. If you have the opportunity, Masada really should not be missed. Click here to view this Page



Bethlehem

A few days after Christmas we crossed into the Territories to visit Bethlehem, another amazing experience. We saw the Church of the Nativity and the Shepherds' Field and had a very nice lunch. Click here to view this Page



Tel Aviv and Jaffa   
Posted by Richard on Sunday 24th February 2008 at 04:54 PM

On New Year's Eve we took a bus tour of Tel Aviv and Jaffa. Very good value; just ask Liz. We did just miss the first bus (don't ask Liz!), but this gave us the chance to burn off some energy in Yarkon Park. Click here to view this Page



Zikhron Ya'acov   
Posted by Richard on Sunday 24th February 2008 at 04:31 PM

On our last day we visited Zikhron Ya’acov high up on Carmel Mountain. Baron Edmond de Rothschild was called the 'Well-Known Benefactor' of the Settlement, and is buried in the nearby Ramat Hanadiv nature reserve. Click here to view this Page
