Our roving retirement tour of the middle east finally took us to Jerusalem at the very end of our three-week tour. Our hotel was again in the Arab district of east Jerusalem. There were lots of restaurants in the area, just no beer.
Our roving retirement middle east trip finally took us to Israel via the land crossing from Jordan. I have waited for many years to come to Israel. I was so excited to finally be in Israel.
Our roving retirement tour of the middle east had to include Jordan because we absolutely wanted to see Petra and we weren’t disappointed.
Emerging from our new digs in Aswan, Egypt, we turned the corner and began to connect with the ancient temples and tombs. We visited Abu Simbel, Karnak, Luxor, and the Valley of the Kings.
