During a recent visit to Israel with my father, we get lucky as their are NO CROWDS during our visit to the most famous holy sites in the country. Israel briefly opened to foreigners in November 2021, before closing again in December due to the Omicron variant. This unique look shows famous holy sites that are typically swarming with tourists – except this time, we’ve got the place almost entirely to ourselves.

During a business visit to Israel, I take some time out to visit the Holy City of Jerusalem. I quickly learn there is an open debate as to Where at in Jerusalem was Jesus Crucified. Catholics, Protestants, and others have different beliefs and ideas – though it seems nobody knows for certain the location. I visit three possible sites and give me opinion on each. Turned out to be a fun little project and a good time exploring the city of Jerusalem and meeting people. Link: https://youtu.be/CKVeRPIaf4o
A visit to Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee – It was not what I expected. Since I was a kid, Nazareth has always been a small quaint village in my minds eye where Jesus learned to be a carpenter. I find out this is simply not the case… but the visit was very much worthwhile and I like the Nazareth that I didn’t expect! Video Link: https://youtu.be/r27NUbSECPI
