Palestine is one of the countries that hold some of the most sacred sites to Jews and Christians. For people like me who possess an intense devotion and faith to our religion, it can be one of the best experiences to be able to visit some of the sites which we believe were part of Jesus’ life.
Most Christians know how important it is for their faith to be able to set foot on the land where the Messiah once lived. It can be a great spiritual adventure that I believe everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime.
My wife and I have been retired for a couple of years and wanted to travel to that part of the world. We thought that we wanted to experience all these things because we have already accomplished many things and now it’s time to live a little and get back to our roots. Our kids are all grown up and have their own families except for our youngest son who is still in college. We have always dreamed of visiting the Holy Land.
Although the reports we have gathered from the Palestine Affairs Council were not favorable because of the conflict between Israel, it did not stop us from visiting the place. We were as headstrong as our faith, and we decided to push through with our plans.
My Holy Land experience is probably one of the best because the very first thing you will notice upon stepping out of the plane is the dry temperature of the country. Our tour took us to some of the best religious places including the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. This is one of the basilicas which I have always dreamed of visiting. The complex has an enormous facade of high stone walls, and once you enter, you are greeted with lined pillars and columns.
This religious experience cannot compare to the happiness and fullness you will get from anything else. Everything turned out great from the hotel services down to the tour buses. I can honestly say that this has been a life changing event for my family and myself.
