Breakfast on the hotel. Not a very large selection, but enough to get started. Checking out, and deposing the suitcases in the lobby. Talking a walk before picking up the car at 12.
Time to leave Jerusalem for now. Lehitraot. There was a trainee at the rental company, so it took a while to get the car. Now the fun part started, navigating out of Jerusalem. I relied on google maps on my iPad. Not sure how smart it was. Maybe I didn’t pay enough attention. I.E. took a sightseeing before getting back on track.
Interesting traffic in Jerusalem… No incidents, so I managed to get on 1 toward Tel Aviv. Somewhere after merging into 6, I noticed that google maps was not too happy, and tried to re-direct me. After a while I discovered that it did not update my position. Switched to maps on the iPhone, which worked much better. Not too bad traffic.
First stop was Tel Magiddo National Park.
Did a quick tour. The best part was the overview of the Jezreel valley. Nice walking through the water system. Surprised how sophisticated it was.
Quite sophisticated water system!
Next goal was driving up to the Gilboa mountains.
Getting late in the afternoon, so set the direction to the hotel.
Dinner at Avi’s restaurant, which is the best of 51 restaurants in Tiberias. If it actually is the best, is hard to know, since I have only eaten at one. Food was very good, and service was great. Very friendly staff.
Back to hotel room to start blogging and editing photos. Nice view to the beach. Look forward to sunrise tomorrow. Hope I wake up in time…
