Two weeks from tonight I will be in Ashkelon as I begin a tour of Israel.
The next day we will travel to the Dead Sea area stopping along the way to visit sites of interest.
One of the places that we will visit will be Tel Be’er Sheva or Beersheba. Later in the trip we will visit Tel Dan, so will have been from Dan to Beersheba.
At the Dead Sea we will visit Masada. I am planning on reading all of Yigael Yadin’s book Masada before I leave on the trip. I have read the first few chapters about how they recruited volunteers for the Masada dig and set up the dig camp. Maybe more on this before I leave.
I am also looking forward to stepping into the Dead Sea. I have been there twice before, but have not made it down to the water.
I am not sure of our entire itinerary yet, I just know where we will be each night.
We will spend four nights in Tiberias.
As each day passes I get more excited about the trip. Especially as I will be traveling with some of my best friends.
Now back to reading.
