So I guess the best place to start is at the beginning.
I have had so many opportunities to go to Israel with Aglow International.
Honestly, I never wanted to go until my husband could go with me.
It’s not nearly as fun telling a loved one about a trip, as it is experiencing that trip with them.
So on opportunity 19 – We were on our way!
The longest part of the flight was ten hours.
I’m not sure how people who travel all the time get used to it.
It was light when we boarded our first plane, but by the time we were over the ocean, it was too dark to see. (Insert sad face here)
I was able to get some pretty photos while flying the friendly skies though.
Airlines vary in how they authorize what you can take on the plane, and what you cannot.
I believe the strongest, and also the safest, was our flight on El AL Israel Airlines.
We were glad to be a bit early to go through their security, they were thorough, kind and quite serious about our safety. (And theirs I’m quite sure.)
When we arrived at our resting place in Jerusalem, we saw this on the side of a nearby hotel;
After our arrival, and finding that I had left my phone on the bus, we went to our room and tried to rest; which was not the easiest thing to do.
We were blessed by the fact that the travel company we used, actually owned the bus, and so my phone was returned to me the very next morning.
The view from our hotel.
Next time, I’ll share Day #1 in Israel.
I’d love it if you join me.
