So many things in life...

& blogging & planning, etc. do not go according to plan.

Example 1 - with blogging, I made one of those countdown banners, but was not clever enough to insert it near the top... You have to scrolllllllll way down to see that we leave in 4 days.


With only 5 days to go, you'd think that we would have our plans fairly set in stone...

Well some are but some tohers are clearly still evolving...

We arrive on Sunday evening & hope to get right to sleep as soon as we get to Jerusalem. (That would be after getting our bags, going through customs, getting our rental car & our rental cell phone...)

So that on Monday, we can start out bright & early for Haifa. (change 2 or 3) We were always going to Haifa on Monday, but for a time we were going to Netanya first for coffee with a quilter & for a time we were going to Caesarea first. Now we will head for Haifa first & then head to Caesarea before ending up at our B&B in Sde Nechemia (one of 2 things set in stone on our itinerary.) On Tuesday we are going to Banias & from there hopefully to Tzfat (really hoping for this one...) & then to Jerusalem for a tour of the Western Wall tunnel. (We got reservations for the last English speaking tour for the whole week.) Walk around in the Old City in the evening - ending up at our Jerusalem hotel for the night. On Wednesday morning, we are getting up early once again to head into the Negev. In the Negev, we will see Ein Avdat & Avdat we may also see Sde Boker (time will be our enemy). We return to Jerusalem for the evening. But we will be up early again on Thursday so that we can go to Massada & Ein Gedi. Returning in the late afternoon to Jerusalem to get ready for the wedding. Off hand, I am not sure what we will be doing on Friday during the day (originally this was the day that we wanted to see the Western Wall Tunnel.) We will probably stay in Jerusalem - maybe go to a museum, as we will be able to take cabs on Friday until sundown, when we may have to go to dinner with the wedding party - not sure about that one, those plans are way up in the air. Saturday we will be staying in Jerusalem, having a nice dinner after sundown. Sunday at 3 a.m., we will need to be at the airport for our flight home.


Now if I was clever, I would be able to post this on Friday... if that is a possibility, I don't know how to do it.


The truely interesting thing will be to compare this "pre-trip" plan with the "post-trip" actuality.

I'm so jealous. Have a great time. I'll be thinking of you. Post trip, I'd be interested in hearng the reasons for choosing those stops other than yeah, they are way cool! But why did you choose those and not others etc.
