Goodbye IsraelDecember 1, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C
The long-feared day has arrived. After 10 unforgettable days in the magical and yet cursed land, it's time for us to fly back to Europe and to our lives.
For once, we can pamper ourselves with a late wake-up and a slow breakfast, while enjoying the fantastic view offered by our hotel on the Dead Sea. Luckily, we travelled light, so even the packing part is not as dramatic as usual, despite the many souvenirs and food provisions. When we get on the bus, I realise that I don't have with me my jumper, so Ludo runs back to our room to look for it... Well, the jumper was actually in the bus, but Ludo finds my beloved scarf from Jordan under a sofa cushion in our room. So, maybe the jumper was hiding for a reason... 😬
It will take us a couple of hours to reach Ben Guido Airport, but we first take some time to take a last look at the Dead Sea from a panoramic lookout. Even if it looks like we are on the top of a pretty high mountain, we are actually still almost 200 metres below sea level. In fact, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth with its 423 metres b.s.l. 😳
After the panoramic stop we resume our drive to the airport, where a new wave of security controls, questioning and, inevitably, repacking (😓) awaits us.
Time to say goodbye to this land so rich in history and culture and, yet, so restless.Read more
