I know it is difficult but I will try to write as less as possible here :))
I went to Israel with no expectations but returned with heart full of excitement, stories and wonderful memories! See Israel in my words and pics..
Israel is a developed country in Western Asia located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. But you need to use magnifying glass to see it on map :))
As described, it is located on Mediterranean Sea. And we stayed in Tel Aviv, the heart of Israel and ofcourse the most beautiful city as well.
We stayed next to beach.. nothing special as the entire city is located next to beach! The view was just awesome. Have a look.
View from the hotel balcony. I have zoomed little bit. Jerusalem as viewed from Mount of Olives Place where Jesus was buried. I had tough time initially but then later started floating. And that was an amazing experience to float in Sea :)
The city has a history that goes back to the 4th BC, making it one of the oldest cities in the world.Jerusalem is the holiest city in Judaism and the spiritual center of the Jewish people. And contains a number of significant ancient Christian sites, and is considered the third-holiest city in Islam.
You will find four religions' quarters - the Armenian, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim at the same place!! That's Jerusalem. I was truly thrilled to see this place.
Our next destination was Dead Sea.
Dead Sea is the lowest point on the Earth dry surface!! Oh I was so excited to see Dead Sea. They say it is sooo saline that no living being can survive in there. And that is the reason, it's called Dead Sea!
Even after knowing all these things, I wanted to swim!!! What a foolish decision! You can never swim there.. a minute single drop of water can make you run and cry :) And it happened with me. The water is very rich with minerals and salt. So you have to be really careful when you go in.
After roaming in Israel, we finally decided to check Eilat. Eilat is the Goa of Israel.
Eilat is Israel's southernmost city, a busy port as well as a popular resort, located at the northern tip of the Red Sea, on the Gulf of Eilat. I was awestruck to see this city. Eilat is desert + Red Sea :)
We tried few water sports in Red Sea. And I will never forget my Parasail and Scuba Dive experience.
Scuba Diving was the best experience!!
After Israel, we started our journey to Eygpt. A complete different country with perfectly contrasting lifestyle and culture as compared to Israel. Meet you with the Egypt story in the next post :)
