Small but beautiful Israel

We are back at home after 5 months Rving in North America.
It was our 9th summer RV trip and usually we spend between 4 and 5 months each summer exploring different States/Provinces.
Many times we were asked about our homeland,how big is it?is it all desert?how many lakes we have?are there forests or mountains? and so on.
So before I give you some details here is what happened in Minnesota 3 years ago:
A nice couple from Minnesota was camping in a spot next to ours and we got a conversation going, after some time I noticed that his vehicle plat says "10,000 lakes State" (or something close to that),so I asked him if they could spare a lake for my country,it would double the number of lakes in Israel and Minnesota will not even notice it.
So we have ONE lake (next to Tiberius),ONE mountain,ONE river,ONE Dead Sea,ONE Desert all in a country of 400 Miles from the North Boarder till the South and between 8-15 Miles width from East to West-YES that is all(try to find it on the Atlas....BUT it is BEAUTIFUL and it is HOME take a look and do not forget to open the sound.

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! It is wonderful to see your country in this way. All we have seen is the past is when it gets in the news--often a scene of war or terrorism. It is beautiful.

Thank you for your comment.
There is so much GOOD in the world but unfortunately the media shows what SELLS and give the impression that this is the reality.
We try to remain Positive and leave a great place for the future generations.
