Israel is on my bucket list!Between two. When I was 9 we went on the ferry across the British channel and took an overnighter train across France into Switzerland and stayed there near Lake Lugano for 2 weeks. Although so young I still remember the stunning scenery from the train and in Switzerland itself, and sleeping in the bunks on the train was great fun for a child. The swimming pool at the hotel had water straight from the mountains, it was freezing but didn't stop me going in most days.
Other one was going to Israel for 2 weeks as a v young adult travelling all round in a small group with a tour guide. Amazing to see all the famous places, plus swimming in both the Dead Sea and Red Sea.
We went to Jordan and we went to the Dead Sea and the Red Sea. How did you swim in the dead sea? We had to walk backwards, very slowly, sit on the water, and voila! We were floating! They told us to be careful not to roll on our bellies, we could drown. A lot of people drown in the dead sea because it's impossible to swim in it!plus swimming in both the Dead Sea and Red Sea.
