Been away -
by Oli on 18 October 2007 - 10:13
| Hi All,|
I have been away for the past week, so I have not been able to answer emails nor monitor the message board. I will be back during/after the weekend.
I have been in Israel for a business meeting.
It was very nice to visit the Old Jerusalem and see the Western Wall and walk the Via Delarosa. See the Curch of Holy Sepulcher and much much more.
What a truly amazing place this is.

I am finally back to Iceland now, and went straight into deleting posts.
Been a rough trip back home. Israeli Airport (Ben Gurion) security borders on the ridiculus (speaking as a Nordic lad that is used to Northern Europe's (lack of) security). Four Hours in a queue, three extensive security searches.
It was an experience to visit the holy land. See the historic sites with my own eyes. Walk the steps of Jesus. See King david's old city. The holy Sepulcher.
Dome of the rock: Al-Aqsa Mosque. Then to walk through the Christian Quarter, Jewish Quarter and Moslim Quarter.
To view the holy city from the Mount of Olives, there is a very beautifull plaza to view the holy city there. Said to be the same spot where jesus did his teachings and prophesising.
I will write more later, (still getting settled in, just woke after a good nights sleep. (before that awake for 36 hours travelling).
But I would definetly encourage people to go visit the holy land. Its very safe, I only saw armed soldiers around the entrance to the Western Wall (Wailing wall) .
And with a good guide its a trip to cherish in your heart.

Wow, what an awesome experience.
I would so love to go one day.
Glad you made it home safely.
So sorry you had to come back to some of the childish stuff that seems to take place here.
