Technician in electronic’s full time Webmaster in spare time Trying to make a living :)
You went right past my home, Kibbutz Yagur, 8 km SE of Haifa…hope you had a great time!
please consider referring to the “west bank” by its Biblical name: Yehuda and Shomron. Have a great time and all the best.
My dad is from Egypt and I’ve visited there(and other places overseas) a few times. I know you’re in Israel but perhaps you will go to an Arab country and this will help.
My travel tip is: Don’t take pictures unless you’re around other tourists taking pictures. It will peg you out as a tourist and obviously that you have a camera that is worth stealing.
2nd tip is: Know the culture. If you are a man in the middle east it is considered strange to talk to a woman you don’t know. If you are a woman don’t travel alone because you compromise your own security.(not a great idea for a man to travel alone either if you don’t speak the language fluently) People expect tips(a buck) for frivolous things. There is no set price(good chance to practice barter lol.) People are ridiculously hospitable. All locals assume that all Americans want to eat McDonalds lol. If you get a taxi it is considered strange to not talk to the driver. Many locals(perhaps most) don’t give a shit about the pyramids or tombs lol. My aunt calls them ‘rubbish’ (British English for trash lol.)
Last tip: Don’t be afraid to speak English to people if you go to Egypt or UAE(and maybe some other countries.. Most people speak more English than the undocumented immigrants in our country..
Ok last last tip: Have fun and dive fully into the local culture. :)
Enjoy your trip PN and have an amazing time! 🙂 You are such an inspiration :)
get better and stay safe over there
Good luck and take lots of pics!
PN, Happy New Year! And have a safe & fun trip!
Keeping a flashlight handy at all times is a good tip no matter where you are! I keep a 800+ lumen LED tactical flashlight on my belt and a smaller but still powerful (190lm on high) single-cell LED flashlight on my key chain at all times, and I have probably more than a dozen of those little key chain lights (believe it or not the Gerber Bear Grylls model is a good one!) attached to different items that I use on a regular basis. That’s right here at home where I know the layout and where everything is. I can only imagine how much more useful those lights would be in a place I’ve never been to before!
Patriot Nurse, couldn’t you get out of your comfort zone in say, the Bahamas or Hawahii? I have always maintained that you need to relax a little bit more. I’m not sure you are in the right place for that. God Bless and watch over you. Be safe.
Judea and Samaria is a much nicer name than “West Bank of Jordan”. 🙂 You look cool, be safe out there.
I would appreciate a candid view of your visit, but I know this would be a difficult subject to write about without upsetting some people on this site.
I am sure the information you gather will be of great interest to people following the political problems of the area.
I wish I could be one of those small leds on your jacket to witness what you see and hear. 🙂
I hope you have safe travels!
Also, 2 day cold?! What’s that about I get 2 week colds :/
Great tips! Looking great. Keep up the good work!
Any more tips on traveling for EDCs + BOBs? I’m going to be in Texas for a few weeks + taking my 7 yr old grandson by plane!!! Thanks!
What’s interesting in Israel? A war?
Go-Patriot Nurse Girl,…go.
You sure can’t tell that you’ve had a cold and lost sleep. You look really healthy and vibrant. I know this will be a great time of refreshing and enjoyment for you… Looking forward to more videos from Israel. Thanks! Sister!
Another great video, but how come there is always a bird or two in the background of your videos, even in Israel? LOL
By the way hope you feel better soon.
Great to have you in Israel. if you want to meet and discuss prepping in Israel drop me a PM
Great video thanks
Yep I liked the vid, there was a Rooster shouting non stop. Can’t wait to see new videos come out of your trip.
Great tips! You are whetting my travel appetite again. Enjoy your travel time.
Airlines should provide re-breathers or at least carbon filter masks. Hmmm, there’s a marketing opportunity… Fromers guides used to be great for maps. A very small phrasebook in the native language is critical too. Even if you speak a little of the local dialect, having written text can help you overcome pronunciation issues. Just point when you really get stuck, then listen to the native read it and emulate the sound. Been using small flashlights as zipper pulls for years, even before LED’s. They’re essential handy while travelling, where you cannot always count on ambient light. That they’re LED light fobs just make them light-weight and last longer. Small clips can help you free your hands if other objects must be carried on the spur of the moment. Oh, and cheap bamboo chopsticks are great for handy eating, splinting, or many other uses, and can be carried without question through most airport screening areas. Also empty zip-lock baggies can keep receipts or other critical paperwork dry. Don’t count on the cleanliness of utensils, or non-toxicity of plastics overseas. Don’t carry a lot. All of the items I mentioned above should be able to be carried by volume in one hand comfortably. They go in pockets neatly & easily.
Don’t get infected with MERS-CoV.
Enjoy your time away in the Holiest of Lands. Keep us updated on what you do and what you see as most of us will never be able to go. Thanks for everything. MP 101 was awesome and highly recommended to all. See you in 2014 for MP 201.
