A visit to Israel

Without doubt, my most memorable visit (and it was all done on one spare day away from business in Northern Israel) to any destination was to Jerusalem.

Whatever your beliefs, you cannot help but be overwhelmed when standing here –

  • The wailing wall. The only remains of the wall surrounding Temple Mount, reputedly the site of the first and second temples of Jerusalem.
  • The Dome of the Rock. Reputedly build over the rock on which Abraham offered his son for sacrifice, and from which Muhammed is said to have ascended.
  • The seven stations of the cross
  • The Garden of Gethsemane
  • The Mount of Olives
  • Bethlehem
  • The ruins of Jericho
  • The Dead Sea

Me? I was blown away!
