Jo Dounias Greece and Mediterranean Travel Centre Sales rep Road Tests Israel
She finds Passion, Fashion and Funky Fun in the Holy Land
Greece and Mediterranean Travel Centre Sales Rep recently returned from a visit to Israel to experience the company’s Israel product range. As a lady of Greek heritage she was surprised about the large number of churches in Israel which were ether run by or were places of ownership for the Greek Orthodox Church.
She loved the cosmopolitan funkiness of Tel Aviv and the charm of its 6,000 year old twin city Jaffa. She contrasted the “Brazilian style hedonism” of Tel Aviv with the spiritual intensity and passion of Jerusalem . Like many visitors she was moved by her visit to Bethlehem. Adding the biblical theme she sailed on a Jesus boat in the Sea of Galilee, and visted the Basilica of the Annunciation where she saw the Greek mosaic (pictured right) there among many international mosaics in the Basilica contributed by Catholic artists from all over the world.
Despite the fact that its was a sizzling 42 degrees the day she visited the Dead Sea , she couldn’t resist the experience of a float in the buoyant salty waters of the lowest point on earth.
Jo loved Israel, a destination undergoing strong growth in Australian demand this year and her visit will contribute to GMTC’s expertise in this destination.
