Going to Israel Soon and in Need of Advice
As some of you guys know, Laurie and I will shortly be visiting Israel for the very first time. What I need from those of you who are familiar with the country is some advice on what to see and do while we are there.
We are intending to spend about eleven or twelve days in country. We'll spend a few days in Tel Aviv, a few days in Haifa, and at least a few days in Jerusalem and, of course, we'll take day trips to places such as Caesarea and Nazareth.
Ziontruth has recommended some of the old Roman fortresses in the Negev, such as Metsad Zohar and Beit Guvrin, but I am hoping that those of you who also have some familiarity with the country can give us your recommendations, as well.
I would very much appreciate it, as Laurie and I are in the process of filling out our itinerary.
Also, of course, any restaurant recommendations would be very helpful. Whenever I travel, food is an important part of the agenda. No matter where I go I am always interested in the local cuisine.
So, who has the best falafel in Tel Aviv?!
You guys have my thanks and appreciation.
By the way, the image above is of a Roman colosseum in Bet Guvrin. (FYI)
