Israel … A True Enigma.

is 3Adventures in the Holy Land

Traveling the mysteries

Truthfully, Israel was never on my “must go to” list before now. Possibly because it has been at perpetual war. This pinky- sized state is surrounded by massive countries that are constantly at war with their neighbors and who have, since the beginning of time, declared war on Israel at one time or israel 1another. The history is complex and deep.
Israel is so small you can drive from one side to the other in about four hours and it looks the size of a peanut on the world map. Undeterred, Israel stands strong, and lives tall and extremely proud. And proud they should be; in the past 63 years they have rebuilt themselves to become one of the strongest economies in the word. Scholars, mathematicians, scientists, doctors and is5professionals of all kinds come from all over the world in search of something sacred. Israel’s mysteries draw them.
