My Trip to The Holy Land

Traveling to Jerusalem is something I have dreamed about doing my entire life. I had always wanted to complete a Holy Land pilgrimage. Recently, my husband and I took a trip with the JerusalemJourney company. They offer a variety of Jerusalem tours. Although I had always wanted to travel to the Holy Land, I really had no idea what to expect. Even though Israel is a modern country, when we visited the ancient sites, I felt like I had stepped back in time.

 

We were in the Holy Land for about a week. I was able to visit so many important Biblical sites that I cannot possibly describe them all. We went to Tabgha, where Jesus performed the miracle of the loaves and fishes. In Nazareth, we saw the site of Joseph’s carpentry workshop. Of course, in Jerusalem, we visited the Church of the Nativity. I would really love to come back to do another tour at Christmas time. I think it would be an amazing experience. We also visited the Holocaust Memorial, which was heartbreaking.

When I told some of my friends and family I was about to travel to Jerusalem, some of them were concerned. However, I felt perfectly safe my entire trip. I encourage people not to let the way the Middle East is portrayed in the news keep them from traveling to this region. Especially if you travel with the Jerusalem Journey company, you will have nothing to worry about. Our hotels were clean and comfortable. The pace of the trip was good too. I feel like we got to see all the important sites, but I never felt rushed or hurried.

 

My trip to Jerusalem changed me. I feel like I grew spiritually, and I will never be the same. When you visit the holy sites in Jerusalem, you feel like you are in the presence of something much bigger than yourself. When we visited the Wailing Wall, I got chills. It was like I could feel the thousands of years of prayers that were said there. Our guides were very knowledgeable, and I learned a lot about the history of the region and my faith. If you have ever thought of making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, I would highly recommend the JerusalemJourney travel company. Their prices were reasonable and everyone I talked to was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Do not miss out on this once in a lifetime experience.
