We spent wonderful 13 days in Israel in October/November. This place is so energetic. So much ancient history. Sometimes it is almost overwhelming. Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Masada, Sea of Galilee, Jordan River, Nazareth, Haifa, Tel Aviv, etc. Eilat, the Red Sea resort, has such an interesting location. From Eilat you can see 4 countries at once . Being in Israel, you can also observe Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. And the Mediterranean Sea in Tel Aviv was still warm enough for swimming.
One of many cultural shocks: almost everybody speaks Russian.
