How to Survive a Visit to the Pyramids

I am not going to write about the history, the mystery or the grandeur of the pyramids. For over 4,000 years the pyramids have been one of the best known structures on Earth. We have probably all seen TV shows, read books, or did a fourth grade report on them so there is nothing I […]

McArabia: McDonald’s in the Arab World

Since I last wrote about McDonald’s when I was in Dubai, I’ve been in Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Egypt and Jordan. As all of the McDonald’s in the Arabian Peninsula are owned by the same company, there isn’t a whole lot to add to what I had to say about McDonald’s in Dubai. I managed […]

UNESCO World Heritage Site #60: Saint Catherine Area

From the World Heritage inscription: The Orthodox Monastery of St Catherine stands at the foot of Mount Horeb where, the Old Testament records, Moses received the Tablets of the Law. The mountain is known and revered by Muslims as Jebel Musa. The entire area is sacred to three world religions: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. The […]

Everything Everywhere Rewind: Hawaii and Australia

Most of my readers haven’t been following me since the start of my trip. What I’m going to try to do is periodic updates where I can share some of the things I was doing/seeing one and two years ago, in late April of 2007 and 2008. It also gives me a good excuse to […]

Win a Free Signed Print from Scott Kurtz

Back in April of 2007 when I was starting my trip, I stopped in Dallas to visit my friend Scott Kurtz, who writes PVPonline.com. I spent a few days in Dallas and he did his April 10, 2007 comic strip about me, which was a real honor. I’m teaming up with Scott to give away […]

Video: Moment of Silence on Israel’s Memorial Day

Israel has a very unique tradition on Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day) and Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). An air raid siren will go off and everyone will stop what they are doing for 2 minutes. People in their cars will stop wherever they are and get out to stand. This video was taken at 10:58am […]

UNESCO World Heritage Site #59: Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis

From the World Heritage inscription: Thebes, the city of the god Amon, was the capital of Egypt during the period of the Middle and New Kingdoms. With the temples and palaces at Karnak and Luxor, and the necropolises of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, Thebes is a striking testimony […]

Leaving Tel Aviv

Don’t get me wrong, Tel Aviv is a nice city, but I didn’t have any plans to stay here for two weeks. My laptop battery finally came in and everything is now fine in computerland. I’ve been here so long I ended being in Tel Aviv during Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s memorial day. Unlike memorial day […]
