This is Galilee (TIG) Newsletter, Issue #002 -- Bookmark these links!
April 12, 2011
Hi!

Welcome to the April Issue of the Galilee Newsletter - A monthly e-zine about the north of Israel and all that's new at this-is-galilee.com (TIG)

WHAT'S NEW AT TIG:
This month, I'd like to thank Vladimir Etkin for his feedback on my new "Other Resources" page.

Vladimir sent me a list of links which he found useful while he was doing research for his holiday in Israel. He is an MD and homeopathy practitioner in Russia and has written four books in Russian about alternative medicine. He visited Israel as an independent tourist with his wife in 2009 and loved the Galilee. He will be returning again this May and will be staying in Tiberias.

Here's a bit about some of the sites he recommended, which I will be adding to my "Other Resources" page:

http://www.gogalilee.org This is an excellent site run by the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee. While you're there, have a look at an article I wrote for them on green tourism: http://www.gogalilee.org/daytour.asp?p=9992 (in English) or http://www.gogalil.org/upper_galilee.asp?s=9978 (in Hebrew)

http://www.eyeonisrael.com Vladimir recommends this as the best interactive map of Israel on the internet and I have to agree with him. It's not so easy to find a good map of Israel in English as Googlemaps don't show any Israeli towns - only the surrounding countries - although I haven't been able to find out the reason for this.

http://www.tripadvisor.com/ListForums-g293977-i1733-Israel.html Of course, where would we be without Tripadvisor's trusted traveller reviews and opinions. I sometimes participate in the forums as "Galilgirl" - you will recognize the picture of the trees from the top of my webpages!

http://www.biblewalks.com This is a great site for other Christian tourists like Vladimir. It has a lot of great images and information as well as quotes from the Hebrew bible and New Testament.

If you would like to recommend websites, books or articles that you think will be useful additions to TIG, please contact me, and I will check them out.
