Israel is one of my favorite places to visit. I think it stems from my upbringing in a Christian home and my parents instilling Christian values within me. I had heard of all of the miracles in the life of Jesus and read all about the ancient times of the Bible. It was only a matter of time before I decided to check it out and see for myself firsthand the place where Jesus had tread with his disciples. Before going you may have a few questions.
First and foremost, is it safe to travel to Israel at this time? While there is a lot of crazy things going on in the Middle East at this time for the most part the international travel federation considers Israel a fairly safe place to travel to. Now the nation does have a higher risk to travelers than many other countries. Since Israel has had some tense relationships with Arabs and Muslims there is a moderately high risk of terrorism if you travel there. These slight risks are not a problem for me however, I am fine with a little bit of risk because I wanted to see the country. It was on my bucket list.
The country is very well developed and has a thriving medical system. The hospitals and medical centers are on par with the United States and other Western countries. Another advantage is that most signs for hospitals, pharmacies and other important and prominent places are often in English for foreigners. If you are Arab or Muslim and you plan on traveling to the country you can expect some very heavy delays at the airport. The country has no problem profiling you and you will be detained and questioned as to what your plans are and why you are traveling inside of Israel.
I recommend traveling to Israel with a large group that has specific agendas for the day while you are there. You will be able to see more sites and having a large group with you will bring you more of a sense of security. There are many places to choose from when selecting the company to host your trip. Simply doing a Google search online will give you a lot of options like seo san diego. Israel is a beautiful country that is full of history and traditions. When you go there make sure you respect the holy places but most of all have fun and learn about the new culture. Until next time.
