My wife and I are thinking about going to see Israel this October. Russians do not have to have a visa starting September 30th, 2008 and I being an American citizen do not need a visa either. So we have just about made up our minds to go to Israel.
The reason we want to go is because in reality says that this may be a last chance for awhile to see Israel. With the complications arising from the Iran-USA-Israel triangle, who knows the political issues that come up or even the possible destructive issues. Israel seems to become more unstable everyday.
Israel is the Holy Land for Christians and we would like to see it before something happens to it. So even with the risks getting higher everyday, we say, “Lets Go!”
Air fair runs about $400 dollars per person round trip. (That is not bad.) The hotels are running around $60 dollars a day. There is about 1,000,000 things to see so that will take about two weeks. 🙂
We found a: WARNING: Afghanistan, Algeria, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen block passports containing Israeli stamps or visas, as these countries do not recognize Israel. If you intend to visit one of these countries, ask to stamp a blank page, rather than your passport, when entering Israel. We have to think about this warning because I would like to travel to Iran also.
I see that Egypt is located right next to Israel, that would be fun to see the pyramids!
Well, enough on that subject, we will let you know if we are able to go in a few weeks.
Anyone been there and have any suggestions on what to see in Israel?
