LOL.  I need to figure if I'm going solo or with the family.  If solo, I'm definitely doing an Eilat-Petra-Wadi Rum-Eilat excursion.

You can name Emkay in your will as long as I am named as beneficiary of your life insurance  :D
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In all seriousness, if you happen to head down south maybe check out Sderot. It's been nicknamed the "bomb shelter capital of the world".  Every bus stop is a bomb shelter and playground rides are basically themed bombs shelters.
If you bring enough candy and cigarettes for the soldiers by the border you can use their high powered binoculars to check out a view of war torn Gaza. The closest you will prob ever get.

That brings up another question. Should tourist know where bomb shelters are located?

They are everywhere. In Sderot you have 19 seconds to get to one. Every single house, bus stop, and public building has. There is no discrimination, everyone runs into the first one whether it's public or someones house. In Jerusalem BH area there isn't much need but every single building has one, during times of active war the government paints signs in public places with arrows toward shelters.

Oh. So you have a pension. You can keep your wife as beneficiary of that one (would need her consent to change that anyways) but you can still name me as beneficiary of your life insurance.
