Must fly… I’m scooting around the 30th Holiday World.
The annual Travel Extra fair which has moved onto Dublin from Belfast and Limerick.
And I’m catching up with a fleet of Travel providers if that’s the right collective noun.
So that’s me with Colombia Charges D’Affaires Patricia Cortez Ortiz.
In my Colombia hat. And you thought it was a Panama Hat.
Well Panama used to be a part of Colombia so it really should be called a Panama hat.
There are various ways to get to Colombia with a stop-off.
I’d recommend through Amsterdam with my old pals at KLM… www.klm.com,
While, of course, here’s Free, my new Ethiopian pal.
Ethiopia and other destinationsAnd here’s some really good offers which are as good as free.

El Al of a country
The big news at El Al http://www.elal.com is the three non-stop flights from Dublin to Tel Aviv from May 26 from €326.
Now I’ve seen Israel from the Red Sea and the Dead Sea… and right up close with www.gadventures.com.
And personal, across the River Jordan The water of life, Petra, and the sands of time where the Israelis say John the Baptist baptised Jesus.
Although the Jordanians say it was further into their country.
And yes I’ve seen it too from atop Mount Nebo where Moses saw the Promised Land.
But couldn’t get in because he’d fallen out with God.
I’m making sure I’m staying on HIS right side as a Eucharistic Minister.dQQQQÀ
So that I can fulfil a lifelong ambition to visit Israel https://www.touristisrael.com/visit-israel/.
Maybe this year, God willing, whoever He or She may be.
MEET YOU IN THE SKIES
