I should do an Israel one? Might not be interesting for most though... Anyone else want to see one?
Trip reports - either you love them or not
I personally will read as many as I can. Doesnt matter if its a common place.
Please dont hesitate.
Thanks

Of course some people can leave easier & some harder.. Some have more vacation days & some have less.. Some work for others, some are their own boss.. Everyone has their own "package of good stuff & problems"

But if someone has the ability to fly & use miles & points.. YOLO

I hear you. This seems like a great short term trip (3-4 days) so plan around the next time you get a free Monday or Friday (due to holiday).

After further thought, I prefer not to make a TR for Israel.. We'll leave it at that :)

Nice TR.
Shame you didn't splurge the extra $50 for the Fairmont Pacific Rim.  #1 rated hotel in Canada.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So just write about where you ate/stayed in the Israel master threads.
