Right, so I promise this is the last post on Israel for a while (as you are probably tired by now of me harping on about how awesome it was), but there is one last really special moment to share. . .
Not long after I got back, I got in touch with one of my favourite podcasters, Chris Christenson of the Amateur Traveler to talk a little about our trip to Israel! It was so much fun and I was hugely excited to do it, since I listen to Chris's podcast every week almost without fail. Thanks for the opportunity Chris!

I also highly recommend checking out the other episodes. He's done a whole series on the American National Parks, loads of World Heritage Sites, and has an episode for just about every country on the map, if not more than one! I almost always listen again for places that I'm going to for the first time as part of my pre-trip planning, as well as using it to add places to our "bucket list". Chris is a great host and an obviously passionate traveler himself. This really is "travel for the love of it".
