At the Masada

When I first planned to visit Israel, most of the response from friends and family was "are you crazy?". Well, yes....

Don't believe everything you hear on the news. Israel is much more than the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It's a fascinating country. As much as it is the land of milk and honey, it's very much the land of wine and cheese. Be prepared to eat and drink your way through the country.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:So many different views in such a tiny country
  • Cons:The lack of parking and stray cats in Tel Aviv
  • In a nutshell:It's too much to take in in just one visit.
  • Last visit to Israel: Dec 2007

    They don't allow us such good fun items in work! But I think when I do eventually leave, I will consume - much!!! Gillybob greetings

    Last night I found myself pouting over the fact that I wasn't sitting down to a shabat dinner. would it be wrong for me to convert just for the food?

    I see Mr. Desert Beard is plotting something. I didn't make fun of him, just made sure he doesn't drive after consuming 2 Duvels :)
