“Holy Hols”

published 21/06/2007

Proa travel destination like no other

ConsWe didn't find any that gravely disturbed us.

Last year my husband and I stayed in Tel Aviv at the end of May for two days and then moved on to Jerusalem for six days, it takes 50 minutes to get there by car. The heat wave we had encountered on our arrival was still going strong but it was much better to endure in Jerusalem whose hills are...

“The Golden City”

published 19/09/2001

ProAmazing, beautiful

ConsDangerous

Jerusalem is the kind of city it is impossible to visit 'blind'. Everyone knows her glancingly. Her name invokes impressions, differing impressions, in people across the globe, and her role in Western Civilisations cannot be underplayed. I was fortunate enough, and I do use 'fortunate' guardedly...

I was in Jerusalem for three weeks in July whilst teaching English to children as a volunteer. I didn't really know what to expect although I made sure I read some of the history before I went.

“Homesick for a foreign city”

published 09/07/2000

ProAn incredible experience

ConsUnfriendly tourist areas

Now, this might sound strange, but I actually felt homesick for Jerusalem when I left. It is the strangest place I have I have ever visited, and I as soon as I left, I wanted to be back there. I stayed in a public hostel while I was there and I was amazed at the number of people who seemed to...

“So much to see!”

published 16/08/2000

ProLoads of interesting sights

ConsExpensive.

Jerusalem is fascinating, but which Jerusalem? Do you mean the Old City? That is the site of all the New Testament references to Jerusalem, where Jesus spent the final period of his life. But there is also the fascinating City of David, a short way from the Old City. There you can walk through...
