A New Morning in Jerusalem and beyond.

Waking up  to a new morning in an unknown city is full of promises.

The noise in the small streets, the smell of freshly baked bread

The view from the window

Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. A city which is so important for so many religions.
We did not stay long but headed off to start our hiking tour on the Westbank.

We had to take many de-tours due to road blocks or like here to demonstrations and burning of tyres.

I guess I have never ever before seen so many car wrecks.

And then beautiful pastoral scenery.

Beautiful little towns where we spent the night.
To be continued...


  1. Your brave, it's one place I would not go

  2. Fascinating tour - so much history and so much violence too.

  3. Safe travels!! You are a brave soul!

  4. Amazing - looking forward to seeing all the sites that many of us will never get to see in person. Stay safe!

  5. You are so right CC, where ever you are, at home or traveling, early morning is the most wonderful time of the day.. who knows how the day will unfold ☺ For most of us Jerusalem holds much mystery, so I'm loving your images here, the light is gorgeous.. love both the rural and town scenes.

  6. Sag, hast du ab und an auch mal Angst???
    Da, so in Jerusalem???
    Ich beneide dich um solch schöne Fotos, immer und immer wieder!
    Das ist Leben pur! Hier ist doch schon eigentlich alles Verboten....

    Ich wünsche dir ein traumhaftes Wochenende!
    Liebe Grüße zu dir schicke,

    1. Angst habe ich nicht - ich bewege mich ja nicht in einem Kriegsgebiet. Mehr Angst hatte ich um meine Knochen beim beim Wandern, das war schon manchmal grenzwertig. Schönes Wochenende.
