On November 4th I leave for a tour of Israel with a small group from our congregation. We will be sharing a bus and tour guide with a group of Roman Catholics from Hawaii and some Presbyterians from Pittsburgh. Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, right?
"So a bunch of Catholics, Presbyterians and Lutherans get on a bus..."
Anyway, as I make preparations for the tour, I was wondering if any of my kind blog readers had ever been to the Holy Land and could offer some advice, like....
Any "must see" attractions? Anything to avoid?
Anything I should take that might not be obvious?
A food or beverage I should try while there? (I am looking forward to some good falafel and Israeli beer)
Or other advice for my trip?
