As we spend summers traveling with our 5W in North America we try to catch up with our local travels during the winters.
Usually the winters are quite mild in this part of the world so clear skies and crispy days are very common here that makes the outdoors activities very attractive.
All you have to do is be dressed as an “ONION” meaning layers of clothes that can be taken of or added accordingly to the weather changes,the trail has to dry and not muddy after a heavy rain ,add to it good company , good mood and you are set to go.
Our tour bus picked us up at 6AM and others on the route to South Golan Heights to Gamla and ancient Synagogues.
If you are interested to read about one of the most heroic battles (even more than Masada) go to http://www.jewishmag.com/40mag/gamla/gamla.htm and read all about it.
The trip ended at 8PM but till then we hiked around 7 miles on a beautiful day (a little hazy) and visited 3 ancient synagogues ,Gamla and had a surprise birthday party to one of our friends during the lunch break.
The tour guide was very informative and gave us the feeling that we are experiencing the old times and the events as they happened.
Till we meet again…
