☮️🇮🇱🇯🇴🏳️🌈Facebook memories can be a cruel beast - 1 year ago today, we were honeymooning in Israel. My crazy favourite place on earth. Walking through the Jewish, Arab and Christian quarters of Jerusalem gives you the most belly curdling feeling - my Grampy called this feeling ‘Jerusalem syndrome’ and I definitely think this is a real thing. The most contested city on earth, is to me, the most beautiful and I urge everyone to visit.
The media has badly wronged this place and I think the only way to prove this fact, is through visiting and meeting people, of all creeds who happily coexist throughout most of the country.
We split this last trip, between Israel and Jordan, by flying down to Eilat and walking across the Jordanian border. We based ourselves in Aqaba and visited Petra and Wadi Rum, with it’s Star Wars-esq landscapes. I can’t recommend this trip enough, but avoid the boiled sheeps brains - a local delicacy, straight out of Indiana Jones.
So many of my doodles from this trip became cards and prints - I cringe a bit when talking about ‘being inspired’ but I would certainly benefit from some new ‘inspiration’ - Any excuse to plan a holiday 🌝
