Jerusalem Old City Free Walking Tour
Jerusalem Old City Free Walking Tour

Sunday, 17 February 2019

It was Susan’s idea, the free walking tour, she had done them in the past and said that they were a great way to become orientated when you arrive in a new city. To be honest, I was a little sceptical. I didn’t like the idea of being herded around like sheep and being given the hard sell at every turn, but Susan convinced me, telling me that the tour would be free and that we would only have to tip the guide what we thought the tour was worth. If we hated it, we could bail and head off on our own. Susan booked the tour with a company…

Arriving in Jerusalem
Arriving in Jerusalem

Saturday, 16 February 2019

We arrived at Ben Gurion Airport, Tel Aviv, cleared passport control and found ourselves standing just outside of the arrivals hall a few minutes after 9 pm. We had missed the bus to Jerusalem by only 5 minutes and now had almost an hour to wait for the next one. There were alternatives available. The taxi office was right behind us and there were plenty of taxis waiting for business and I had also installed the Gett App (similar to Uber) on my phone just in case we needed it but a taxi to Jerusalem would cost around 360 ILS (£80) whereas the bus would cost only 16 ILS (£3.50)…

Are you tired of being stuck in the office? Bored of being chained to a desk? Counting down the days until retirement?
Me too!!
