    Day 1 Biblelands tour

    September 14, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Day 1 of the official Biblelands tour! Beyond excited 😮 Caesarea (the largest man made port in the ancient world) amazing aqueduct which I can't believe is still there, old Joppa.. All quite surreal and I have to keep pinching myself that we are here 😍Read more

    Caesarea Maritima

    June 2, 2015 in Israel ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Another of Herod's greatest accomplishments. All of the harbor is underwater today, but it wasn't hard to see why Herod would want to build in this spot. A beautiful part of the Mediterranean.

    This is also the place where Paul spent 2 years in prison and where Peter meets Cornelius, the first Gentile convert to the faith.Read more

    Roman Caesarea

    December 16, 2017 in Israel ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    So much to see, and you can wander round freely, imagining you're in your toga. A helpful CGI film at the beginning explained the long history of conquering and destruction which helped us imagine how it might have looked in each periodRead more

    But these were the best bits!

    December 16, 2017 in Israel ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    Piles of broken columns, carved lintels and other treasures stored neatly beside 21st century rubbish dump behind the amphitheatre
    And best best of all, they'd left a section undug, so you could see generations of shards and dust and crap that covered (and probably protected) the remains. Well, I might have picked a little one off the ground. And then found hundreds more on the beach nearby, which I'd wondered about yesterdayRead more

    When we were in Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives, our guide told us about the stones under our feet and which derived from which era. Walking on history!

    Israel

    October 21, 2017 in Israel ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    We awoke to another jam packed day full of activities & places to visit. Our first stop was the ancient port city of Caesarea; the beautiful weather that we have experienced on this trip, has made for fantastic photo opportunities. The history of this once great city was incredible! Next we stopped just up the road to view the ancient aquaducts that brought fresh water to the city; amazing architectural & engineering feats & in a beautiful location along the Mediterranean Sea.
    The next hour was spent taking in the gorgeous views of the Israeli countryside (very similar to Australia) on our way to lunch at the ancient Tel Megiddo aka. Armageddon. Wow! The view was phenomenal! No wonder this was such a strategic stronghold for millennia! We could see the hills of Nazareth, Mount Tabor, Carmel Mountain Range & the Jordan Valley from here.
    After lunch we drove for another hour to Nazareth for a quick photo opportunity from the top of Mount Precipice. Hokey smokes, the view from here was breathtaking - way higher than Megido! We could have spent all day exploring the old city of Nazareth - we will definitely have to come back 😁
    We were back on the bus again for the 45 minute journey to the serene Sea of Galilee where we enjoyed a cruise before checking in to our accommodation for the next three nights - a kibbutz on the edge of the Sea of Galilee (Nof Ginosar). A beautiful, relaxing place to lay our weary heads after a long day of travelling.

    Morning in Tel Aviv

    December 15, 2017 in Israel ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Just wandering about mostly, and gradually making our way to the central railway station. So much to see and think about. Joe says he hears that both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem have become prohibitively expensive to live inRead more

    Caesarea Maritima, Israel

    November 2, 2018 in Israel ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Caesarea Maritima (eigentlich Caesarea Stratonis oder Caesarea Palaestinae), das häufig ohne weiteren Namenszusatz Caesarea oder Cäsarea genannt wird, war eine bedeutende antike Stadt Palästinas, später auch eine wichtige Festung der Kreuzfahrer. Der ursprüngliche Name der Stadt war Stratonos Pyrgos (altgriechisch Στράτωνος πύργος). Die archäologischen Stätten gehören heute zu den bedeutendsten Israels, das Gelände wurde zum Nationalpark erklärt.Read more
