It is Friday morning and we're making last minute preparations and will soon be on our Mercedes bus heading from our hotel in Jerusalem to the Ben Gurion airport to pick up the pilgrims. They will soon be landing!
In the meantime, they are still high above Europe and the Mediterranea Sea in a Lufthansa jet heading from Frankfurt Germany to the Tel Aviv airport. We will pick them up in the bus and head straightaway for Galilee — about 2-3 hours depending on traffic. Everyone will be exhausted from the long flights from the USA.
We will have a quick welcome dinner at our gorgeous Pilgerhaus Hotel on the shores of Galilee. Everyone will be to bed early and ready to leave in the morning for Cana, the Mount of Transfiguration and Nazareth. We are all very excited!
I will try to keep the blog updated as we go along, not only with news of our trip, but also with other interesting things and newsworthy items. If you have interesting things I should post on my blog, please feel free to send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
