Travelog and interesting stories from Israel published under the Scrolls from the holy land series.
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.

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