Now that our tickets are in hand, and our apartment is confirmed…….it is time for questions.
We are arriving on January 6th, and departing at midnight on January 19th, 2011. We knew when we started planning this trip that Jerusalem was the main focus. I have been to Israel several times but DH has never been. We are a Jewish/Christian couple, love urban areas, and like to travel at our own pace, which can be fast or slow, as the situation requires.
We are staying in an apartment on Lincoln St., almost at the corner of Washington, behind the YMCA Seven Arches.
We are open to a day trip or two, and obviously would like to hear any recommendations. We may go to Tel Aviv for the last two days of our trip but that is still not firm.
Here is what is on our “wish list”, mostly the things that we have to make reservations for:
The Temple Mount sifting
The Tunnel Tour at the Kotel
The Light show at the Citadel
We have to plan our first day with some detail since we arrive at 3 p.m. at Ben Gurion. From there to Jerusalem via sherut. We have to check into the apartment, and according to the owner, there is a convenience store on the same block and a large supermarket very near by. Our thought is to go to the convenience store for essentials that same evening, and leave the other shopping for Friday, which will be crowded, but cannot figure out what else to do. I have to have an adaptable plug which I will bring with me, for a cpap machine, but in the event that it is the wrong one, would have to get one that evening.
That leaves us with what do to next……..make a quick trip to the Kotel, or slow down and have a drink at the King David? Or both?
Your thoughts on this long delayed trip would be much appreciated!Edited: 26 November 2010, 17:33
