Just got back!

I just got back from my trip to Israel yesterday. While my husband and I booked our vacation before the war and went through alot of back and forth during the war over whether or not to cancel our trip - we were so glad that we went. We were in Israel from Sept 9 - 18. We were in Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Jerusalem with day trips to the Galilee and Dead Sea. We felt completely safe the entire time we were there. It was pretty quiet- tourist wise. We encountered tour groups, but no other american tourists. All the Israelis we encountered were so nice to us and were grateful to have the visitors. We saw no evidence of the war - even in Haifa. I'm so glad that we went and just wanted to reassure anyone else with upcoming travel plans that it is still a great place to visit.

Thanks for the note, and for reassuring other visitors. I can't wait to go myself four weeks from this Friday. Welcome home, and I'm so glad to hear you had such a wonderful trip!
