Trip to Israel 2nd part

9 September, 20099 September, 2009 0 comments Uncategorized Uncategorized

If any one is intereste in the particulars of our trip here they are:

We started off south renting a car and 1st stop was Masada. We took the cable car to the top and my husband and daughter walked down, myself and our daughters friend took the cable car back down. It was sooooo hot! That was one thing we learned real fast about traveling in Israel in the summer--plan to spend $ on water!

We enjoyed taking the stairs down to the lower terrace and thought it was a beautiful view. It was neat to see all the remains of the Roman base camps surrounding Masada and the ramp that was built that eventually was used to seige Masada. The bath house was interesting too, amazing how advanced the technology was back then.

We then went to En Gedi National Park where Traveluja help get us a place to stay over night at the field school. We really enjoyed it. It was fun seeing the Ibex wander around freely and climbing on everything--including the cars! We got up early and went to the park, the Rock Hyrax were hanging out on all the rocks. We enjoyed the springs/waterfalls even though the water was cold, but even early in the morning it was hot so we thought it was refreshing. By 10:00 it was crowded and many groups had come to enjoy the falls. After getting a refreshing passion fruit smoothy we were on our way to our next destination--Jericho.

It was also very interesting, I have to admit I was a little nervous about being in the West Bank, but the people were all very nice.

From there we headed into the old city of Jerusalem. We stayed at the Rosery Sister in the old city. It took us awhile to find it. We also decided to drive to the Mt. of Olives that evening and look over to the city. Once again took us awhile to find the top look out point. Directions don't seem to be as clearly marked in Israel as in the US.

We only had a day and a half in the area before we headed North so we tried to get as much in as possible.
