The size of Israel

I was asked by many of my friends that live in the USA,Canada and Europe about the size of Israel and the geographical location,so with out many words I will let the pictures tell the story.

 

 

 

                

                

 

So as you can see it is small BUT beautiful take a look Imax fly over Jerusalem

Now you can also understand what goes through our heads when we RV in the USA or around lake Michigan that is the size of the whole country.

We used to say that we have everything - small and only ONE,one lake,one Mountain,One river ,one desert and one Dead Sea.

On one of our RV trips in the US  I saw a vehicle plate from  Minnesota that says “10000 lake State” (they have more than 16000 lakes) so I asked the person to give us ONE lake so it will Double the number of lakes we have and Minnesota will not even notice ….It did not work somehow…

Thank you for your interest.

I had a general idea about the size of Israel but this really helped to put it into perspective.

Hi Wayne & Maureen,
We are planning to start our 11th RV summer trip in June and will be back in September for our youngest son's weeding.
Here is our planned route http://danyshula.blogspot.com/2011/11/rig-stored-we-are-at-home-for-winter.html
Best regards and thanks for your interest and thoughts.

Good info, most cannot realize the size difference. I've been there a couple times, as Liasion with the MFO. And it is indeed beautiful. I tell people, "I've been around the world more than once and now I will see what we have right here in OUR back yard! Hope to see you again this summer, in Texas right now and headed to California, then back across the northern part of the states, back to the northeast.
Happy Travels!!

Thanks for the comparison maps! They really help to get some perspective. I'm surprised that there are such beautiful wilderness areas considering the small size of Israel.

Very impressive comparisons. Good idea. Some countries may be small but are still beautiful and full of undiscovered treasures.
