      Jaffa to Haifa

      November 16, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

      Our tour guide gave us a 15 minute summary of the history of Israel which is extremely complex to say the least. We visited Rabin Square and the ancient city of Jaffa, part of present-day Tel Aviv. After an hour drive, we found ourselves at the remains of a Roman aquaduct where Sharon walked along the top and also waded in Mediterranean Sea. We drove up Mt. Carmel and had lunch at a Druze family home. The meal was good and family friendly. Stopping at Haifa, we had an excellent viewpoint of the large waterfront and harbour with a rainbow produced by the temporary light drizzle. We looked down on the immaculate gardens and golden roofed Baha’i temple. A short stop at the Stella Marra Monastery, a centuries old Catholic Franciscan Church and monastery was interesting. We stayed in the Bay Club, a very new, spacious and beautiful hotel.Read more

      Transfer to Israel

      November 15, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      Today we were up early and driven to the border between Jordan and Israel, a very wide strip. Coming into Israel, the workers wanted money to get us through more quickly. When in Tel Aviv, we went for a walk along the Mediterranean Sea. The sand is fine and white, with many people on the beach: walking, jogging; playing frisbee, a Brazilian game with two people hitting a small ball back and forth with wooden paddles, beach volleyball, and a similar game to beach volleyball where you can hit the ball with your head, chest or feet only, which was very entertaining. There were many people swimming, surfing, SUP-ing and kayaking. There was a pedestrian wide sidewalk beside the beach, plus a wide and highly used lane beside the road for bicycles and the many electric scooters. Tel Aviv seems to be a very healthy city for people to live. At 6pm we met the 3 new people in our group and Zo, our new CEO.Read more
