The division manager has given the thumbs up and the tix have been purchased, so I guess it’s for real: Next Friday, February 18th, I’m leaving Austin for Tel Aviv, Israel.
I’ll touch-down at Ben-Gurion International Airport Sunday morning at about 1:30am. For religious reasons they work Sunday through Thursday, so I’ll start that same morning and work through the week at the Tel Aviv office.
Then I’ve got a week of vacation time to trek about the country. So far Jerusalen (of course), Haifa, the stomping grounds of Mr. Christ Himself Nazareth and the Lake Tiberias area, and the Negev desert part of the country (including little Eilat and the Dead Sea) seem the most interesting. If you enjoy history, you really can’t get bored in Israel…
Then I’ll be back in Austin on Sunday, March 6th.
I'm Josh Knowles, a technology developer/consultant on a variety of mobile, social media, and gaming projects. I founded and lead Frescher-Southern, Ltd. I grew up in Austin, Texas and currently live in New York City.
