Lot of world travelers are flocking to Israel. To quote Ellen Mast, ‘you can do lot with your time and money, but (traveling) just makes you appreciate what you have at home’. To quote Ottawa resident, ‘and it broadens your horizons, it opens your eyes. Because we’re not just us here in Kansas’. Israel and Jordan provided a mix of spiritual pilgrimage, to explore various cultures and to vacation as well to the Christian couples.
To quote Ellen Mast, ‘I’ve been waiting to go there for years and years, just to see the area.
And yet, we were kind of anxious – ‘is it safe?’ – but we felt very safe over there.’ To quote Norman Mast, ‘in Jordan, interestingly enough, we had a tourism policeman that accompanied us on the bus. He didn’t at night, but during the day when we were touring, he was there.’
From mid March onward, the couple covered a total travel time of 27 hours. Norman said, ‘if anyone is thinking of doing this, I would suggest, spend the additional in getting the upgrade for the additional legroom.’
