Israel, Jordan and Egypt
About this blog
In continuing our quest to visit places where we have never been to, we are off to three new destinations. Initially, we planned to travel to Egypt only, but then we were persuaded to visit Jordan (specifically Petra) as well. In studying maps of the region, it was clear that Israel was just next door. So our itinerary kept growing and we will spend 5 weeks in the three countries. We leave on December 31, 2009 for Berlin, Germany and after a night there, fly to Tel Aviv where we will begin our adventure. We will be traveling independently through Israel and Jordan. In Egypt we have arranged for all transportation, accommodation and numerous guided tours. We have been interested in this part of the globe for some time and look forward to finally set foot in the Holy Land and marvel at the pyramids. As time permits and access to the internet is possible, we will update the blog. Check it out when you have a moment.
