Israel Photo Gallery

Israel was the first foreign country I backpacked to. Interesting choice, I know. Religion is quite in your face here, you know, being such a significant place for all three Abrahamic faiths, and so are young soldiers with guns. I quickly adapted to traveling here and had a great time checking out many parts of the country including some really memorable excursions to West Bank.

Pictures that will make you want to travel to Israel right now!


Bethlehem

I visited the Church of Nativity and the birth place of Jesus Christ in this town in the West Bank (Palestine).


Tel Aviv – Jaffa

Israel’s commercial capital is always busy and parties hard. It also has many quiet parts to help you wind down.


Haifa and Akko

Along Israel’s northern Mediterranean shores is the industrial city of Haifa, and the old city of Acre.

Jerusalem

Israel’s capital city with a very significant history. I spent days crisscrossing little lanes in the old city and checking out mosques, churches and synagogues.


Dead Sea and Masada

Floating in the Dead Sea, and then hiking to the Masada fort in the Judean desert.


Sea of Galilee, Beit She’an, and Safed

Region around the Sea of Galilee has several sites of historical significance, and makes for an excellent bike trip.
