Day trip to Sumeria

We took advantage of a beautiful day in November to visit Sumeria where many holy places mentioned in the Bible can be seen.

Standing next to the place where Abraham took Isaac to sacrifice him at the Lord’s command is exciting , thrilling and sometimes hard to believe even if the place does not reveille in any way what happened there.


Looking at Josef alter ,a burial place with a long history backing thousands of years is unbelievable ,but so are most of other places in Jerusalem,Nazareth and the Jordan river.

The view from Mt Gerizim towards Sumeria valley is outstanding, listening to our guide describing the historical events that took place in this area  really takes you back and when you let your imagination drift away –history can be felt just before your eyes.

In the summer there is not a drop of rain and the place looks like a desert so even a small spring on the way is a reward, a place to sit and take a break.

This was our first day trip since we returned 3 weeks ago from our 5 months long  summer RV trip in North America (can be seen in the privies posts),we hope to have some more trips during the winter before we return to the US to pick the rig from the place we left it to discover new places and meet old and new friends.

Wish  you all a great winter.

It would be so incredible to be able to walk in the footsteps of those prophets in the Bible. Thank you.

History in Israel is sooo much older than here in the US.
Hopefully, you and your whole country will be safe this winter.
