Yeah mate, I know, and trust me, I got my opinions about the matter.
However, these are just a bunch pictures of my trip, during which I met amazing people from both sides of the fence, so please just stick to watching the pictures and either love them, hate them or don't give a crap about them. Please keep the lit on that can of worms and restrict discussing the status of East Jerusalem, the situation in the occupied territories, or just generally biting each other's heads off for having opposing views to the Skybar - it's hunting season there anyways

Thanks for the compliments, guys!

Aah, that makes more sense
With a good friend of mine I toured Israel during the first two weeks of August last year. Started out in Tel Aviv, then Haifa/Akko, then Nazareth/Beit She'an and finally (of course!) Jerusalem, where we were invited by a friend. From there we also did our day trips to the Dead Sea and the West Bank.
