The wanderlust blues are real. Travel is a symbol of our freedom and many of us are experiencing restricted movement for the first time.
Not being able to jump on a plane and travel internationally, is definitely different. Thankfully, here in the states, we can travel from state to state. Some states with more restrictions than others.
One thing is certain: when travel does resume, it will taste that much sweeter and we won’t take a moment for granted. As we wait with eager anticipation, fill yourself with some inspiration with our bucket list of adventures to come!
Israel has announced the reopening to visitors from other countries. And this is only the beginning! Other countries are doing the same!
“As of April 2021, flights to Israel have resumed, with around 50 flights a day from destinations around the world. More flights are expected to begin during the coming weeks, and most airlines are expected to re-start their flights to Tel Aviv by the summer of 2021.
It’s expected that Israel will initially open to visitors from countries whose governments sign reciprocal agreements allowing Israelis to visit. This list is constantly developing, however is expected to include Greece, Cyprus, the UAE, Croatia, Italy, the USA, UK, with more constantly in talks.
Whilst the situation is still dynamic and subject to change, the current plan is that when Israel opens to tourists, there will be the following requirements:
- A negative COVID test is taken before the flight
- Vaccine certificate
- Upon arrival in Israel at Ben Gurion Airport, visitors will be required to undergo a serological test.
It is still unclear whether a serological test will be offered free of charge or for a small fee. And how long the results will take to be provided.” Source: Tourist Israel
We will be heading back to Israel in the spring of 2022! The Jesus Trail / Holy Land pilgrimage is the opportunity to experience the Holy Land in a more intimate way! Walk where Jesus walked.
More Good News!
I spoke with our representative in Italy and the talk is the same. Italy hopes to be open by summer.
Anyone who was originally signed up on our Way of St. Francis for 2020, will be receiving an email shortly with more information and date options.
If you are interested in this pilgrimage, please don’t hesitate to contact us. With everyone eager to travel the pilgrimages will be filling up quickly. We have already had a huge increase in interest!
