  • Dubai - It's History and Culture

    Dubai, a destination loved by everyone has something to attract tourists across all age groups. From the best of adventure attractions to the most relaxing and rejuvenating experiences, Dubai has it all for every type of traveler. But not many know that this entertainment and tourism hub of the world was once nothing but a small Bedouin fishing village. In a matter of just three decades, Dubai rose to become the premier travel destination in the world.

  • Burj Khalifa: Man's creation – Phoenix Rising

    For architecture aficionados, Dubai should be top on your list of cities of the world to visit!  With the World Expo 2020, today you should be planning your trip and securing your reservations while many properties are still affordable!

  • Israel and the Holy Land for Grandparents on Multi-Generational Trips

    The children are grown and are now parents of their own children. Yes, grandparenting is a joy! But long distances, and complex work and study schedules, often hinder family get-togethers and staying in close contact. Unless we are lucky enough to see the grandchildren on a weekly basis, each reunion is almost like meeting them for the first time.

  • Jericho, Israel: A City of Palms

    The ancient city of Jericho, or Tell es-Sultan, where you will learn about the perennial spring that supported this city for centuries and provided the much needed irrigation system for the land as well as to quench the thirst for travelers.

  • Masada: A Cry in the Wilderness

    If you plan a trip to Israel, top on your list is a visit to the sacred city of Jerusalem, second should be a visit to Masada.  You can combine a visit to Masada along with the Dead Sea, but plan on a few hours to capture the spirit and understand what happened here, so many hundreds of years ago.

  • Tel Aviv – The White City: Miami on the Mediterranean

    Israel, a magnificent country and certainly should be at the top of your list of places to visit!

    What often happens is that many spend only a night once they disembark from their flight, exhausted and anxious to get some rest before venturing out to explore and discover the secrets embedded in this ancient land.

  • Luxury Patrol: Jerusalem, Israel

    Jerusalem is the sacred capital of Israel and one of several incredible biblical cities. Situated in the Judean Mountains, the city rests between the Mediterranean and Dead Sea. Jerusalem is divided into two cities, bringing together the best of both worlds. The new city is young and trendy while the old city thrives with history consisting of four diverse quarters: Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim. It is one of the oldest cities in the world and holy to three major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The beautiful architecture pays homage to ancient times, incorporating the very precious Jerusalem stone, a pale whitish-pink limestone. Buildings made with the Jerusalem stone are easily spotted and admired.

  • Dead Sea – Gift of Healing

    A visit to the Dead Sea should be top of your list when visiting Jordan or Israel.  When I lived in Jerusalem, often I would take a day to recoup and plan a “spa” day at the Dead Sea.  I was truly amazed to witness almost miraculous healing for various diseases such as psoriasis and cystic fibrosis.

  • DuBai – “Gateway between the East & the West”

    The origination of man’s creative spirit began in the East – but the gauntlet was passed onto the West – as we have seen throughout our European sojourns.  However, we are seeing the Phoenix rise from a humble beginning as a pearl-diving centre, to one of the fastest growing cities in the world!  What makes Dubai so remarkable is that such accomplishments have taken only thirty years!  This is a city constantly on the move that even the updated GPS systems cannot keep up with all the road changes!
