So I guess the old saying “make lemonade out of lemons” was the theme as we set out to visit the Rock of Gibraltar while in Spain a couple months back. We stayed in Malaga, which is about a 2 hour drive to the border of the UK where the rock is located. The excitement was building as we got closer and closer because this was a childhood dream of H’s so he couldn’t wait to actually visit the place that he said one day he would. He never imagined in his wildest dreams that we would be within driving distance to the real thing.
In January while living in Israel for a couple months, I visited Jericho also known as the “City of Palms”, which is a small city within the Palestinian Territories and Israeli-occupied. I visited The Jordan River, Moses Desert ,Hisham’s Palace ,Mountain of Temptation and the Tomb of Moses. I have to say this was a trip of Biblical proportions! Visiting these holy lands was nothing short of magical.
