    Taking a vacation...

    I decided against the cruise this time. But I took two weeks off mid-to-late May. I am very seriously considering going to Tel Aviv, Israel. I am still considering other places, but I will be making my final choice and buying plane tickets Monday.

    I am hoping to enjoy some OBL, some beaches, some healthy ethnic foods, and relaxation.

    So an atheist goes to the promised land........


    Ok so what is OBL (out of body luxury?). Are you going their to anti prosthelytize? Maybe on the Gaza strip to start peace by giving them both a target?
    This makes me think of that old joke, religion and atheism are two sides of the same coin. One believes in heads, the other tails.

    I am going for the beaches and the cuisines. OBL means One Bag Living -- it is a minimalist thing.

    What an interesting choice. I'm anxious to hear about your experience.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Tell us more about this choice.
    Most of our family has been for weddings but we couldn't swing it. DH is Jewish so a lot of the family goes to the mother land for big events. I would of figured you more for Asia like Vietnam. Friends have gone and found it stunning.

    My son spent two weeks in Vietnam last summer and loved it.

    I know, not what I would have chosen because I don't like desert. But good for the OP for doing somethIng different.
