With just a few days until we both jet off for the wedding in London and then on to Israel, Beans and I spent most of the weekend doing some prep work. The boy looked into his (vast) closet and decided that he hadn't a thing to wear! And so, we trooped off to look for suitable desert wedding attire. 3 hours and 5 stores later, we finally had all of the ingredients to make the perfect wedding ensemble. Again - this was all for Beans.
Back home, we spread out the map across the dining table and started to plot our route around Israel. Over the next few hours we had about 10 different plans but no consensus!
Ah well.... at least we narrowed down the cities! Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, possible side trip to Bethlehem, down to Mitzpe Ramon for some desert adventures like hand gliding and absailing down the crater. Then on to Ein Gedi and Masada to chill out by the Dead Sea before heading up to Haifa. With Haifa as our base, possible day trips to the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth and Akkon before heading back to Tel Aviv to catch our flight back to London.
Of course, given that Beans is "planning" this trip - it could all change in a heartbeat. Really, I'm just going along for the ride!
