I want to thank Doug and Sue for anwering my emails. I would not have the wealth of information that I have obtained from this site and from Doug and Sue.
I have a rental car confirmed and my hotel reservations at the 7 Arches, along with Doug personal travel guide.
I leave on the 27th March and will return 1 April. It not long, but I fly free (I work for the airlines), so if I fall in love with Israel, I will return.
