Spring Has Sprung and It Is Travel Time.
I apologize for my absence from blogging last weekend. Shirley and I have been travelling overseas and I had the best of intentions to maintain my blog schedule while vacationing, but we've just been having too much fun.
"The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding."~ Leonardo da Vinci
We spent the last week travelling all over Israel.
Safe, clean, great food, fun people who love to laugh, sing and dance.
Did I mention the beauty, the history, the culture!
Unmatched anywhere we have ever been, and we have travelled. We would come back here in a heartbeat.
Everyone should experience this at least once in their lifetime.
For the first few days, I thought, next time we come back we would rent a car and get around the country. But after the last few days, I think I would pass on that. I started noticing the driving habits and the fact that every third car I saw had a ding, a scrape or dented fender told me to forget that idea.
We took a taxi today, Saturday the 28th from the Tel Aviv Airport to Jaffa.
The driver had Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On on the music system quite loud, complete with video while his phone was sucker stuck on his dash. It worked and sounded great.
It made me a bit emotional hearing a Canadian singing such a beautiful song while travelling in another country.
It is a joy to learn different cultures. We love it.
