Holy Land Pre-trip Log: T Minus 8 Days and Counting
May 12, 2014
The dates have changed slightly. We will be leaving for Israel on May 20th and returning on May 29th. (Originally, we were scheduled to leave May 18th and return May 28th.)
Please keep David von Glahn of The Faithful Traveler (EWTN) in your prayers. David and his wife Diana are scheduled to travel with our little group to Israel and film a series on the Holy Land. David had a heart attack yesterday (May 11th) and had surgery. The doctors will be evaluating him in the next 24-48 hours to determine if he is able to travel abroad. Thanks for your prayers! Check out their website!!
Today, I am putting together my TSA 3-1-1 liquid bag for carry-ons. The checked bag does not have to meet this standard. Carry-on standards are set at 3.4 ounces (100ml) bottle or less (by volume); 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day. My daughter gave me this for my transatlantic flight!
