The Sea of Galilee

I wanted to post about my Israel trip every day on the first anniversary of being in those places, but it didn’t work out – long hours at work.

To continue the story after all, once we arrived in Israel, everything went rather smoothly and we didn’t have any more frustrating adventures which would fall on my head. I fell over once with my small camera, but it wasn’t very serious.

Every day had its usual drill. We would wake up at 6:30am, breakfast at 7am, get on the coach at 8am and come back for dinner at 6pm. Sometimes we had something organised in the evening, but mostly we would rest and relax.

First two nights we stayed at Astoria Hotel in Tiberias, then one night at Kalia kibbutz by the Dead Sea, two nights at Adi Hotel in Eilat and finally four nights at Mt Scopus Hotel in Jerusalem.

Day 1 – 4th Feb: Following the footsteps of Jesus around the Sea of Galilee: Korazim National Park, Mt Beatitudes, Tabgha, Capernaum, a boat trip on the Sea and via Magdala a short walk in The Valley of the Doves. Before going back to the hotel we stopped by to buy some dates, halva, herbs and spices.

  1. Did you get to see the little church that has an ancient mosaic depicting the miracle of the loaves and the fishes? I think that was up near the Sea of Galilee…

    • No, we didn’t. I know which church and mosaic you mean, because I saw a lot of fridge magnets and postcards with it, but our tour guide decided to take us closer to the Sea and the best access was by the Church of the Primacy of St Peter.
