Journey to Israel – Part II

10 Feb

Welcome my friends to my second installment of Journey to Israel.  This is a trip that my Aunt made over the Christmas holidays.  If you missed the first part of getting to Israel, check it out here.  Part of the adventure was getting there.  Today, I bring you some pictures of Israel and the journey my Aunt took.

For some reason when I pictured where we would be staying while we were in Israel, I never thought modern or updated – LOL.  Go figure huh?  Well, I was happily impressed with our lodging. This is the building with balconies that overlook the city.  See the beautiful clouds – the temperature during our stay at Christmas time was around the 70’s – perfect weather for exploring the lands.

This is another picture overlooking where we stayed – you can see more of the city in it.  You feel old country – you kind of settle into a different world from what you have been accustomed all of your life.  Such an adventure that we couldn’t wait to go exploring in the city.  And you hear nightmare stories of safety.  Personally, we didn’t feel at all afraid of anywhere we went.  The people were open and friendly – always there with suggestions of what to eat or what to see.

One of the first adventures we went on, it had been raining and we stumbled upon the glorious rainbow picture showing a bus coming down the street.  What better way to say welcome to Israel?  And as you can imagine, there are a lot of ‘touristy’ areas but there are also a lot of areas that showed how old the land really was, how mountainous and vast some areas are.

Here are some pictures of some food that we tried and a coke can – do you recognize anything?

    I think in the top left corner of the third picture, there is something that looks like Bacon? If so then I am surprised because I didn’t think they would serve it there. The rainbow picture was a good “sign” to see first. 😀

      Snorts – Nope. I double checked. No bacon – thank goodness for that Auntie Sharon. It was definitely a beautiful trip and that rainbow was so beautiful in that pic. XOXO – Bacon
