Hello postie - I am only just finding my way around - it is only recently that I discovered Chats [and now I cannot find where the smilies have gone!] I think I should have stuck with my original username "Iva0Brain" as I seem to have lost mine somehow!

I don't think we have many members from your beautiful country. Welcome to the forums.

Welcome to the forums.

I visited your country some years ago, just for the day, when I was staying in Cyprus. I remember it as being very hot, and sadly a day when there was unrest so we were not able to see all we planned. I still wouldn't have missed it for the world, a wonderful experience.

@ren33 - I have come across a couple of members from here and have been in contact with one of them a couple of times. I have been a member of FT for four years but only came across the Forums last week when I asked for help on Chat regarding a problem, so thought it was about time I joined here as well! grin

@sue943 - I have lived in Israel for 35 years and even I have not seen all the places I intended to see when I first came here. There was never any time when I was working and since I had to retire due to an accident I have been unable to travel around. Now, of course, I am stuck at home for the duration, so even if I was able to it is out of the question. frown

'Unrest' as you put it, happens, but I never regret coming here and will never leave. I am happy and content in my life, and that is all that matters really.

I hope you can make it cinnam0n - I know that I am biased but it really is a wonderful country.

I was only there a day, and they declared a state of emergency! What I saw was amazing, wandering through Old Jerusalem, an experience not to be missed. As a Christian, my visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was a must.
