God’s people had spent years in exile, facing down plague and pestilence to get to the Promised Land.
But they got there… and so will we.
Pegasus www.flypgs.com are resuming flights from Wednesday (three times a week) from London Stansted to Tel Aviv via Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen.
From €244.99 one-way or on the Pegasus mobile app.
And like the Chosen People I have waited for this.
And herein a lesson to us all. I altruistically opted for the alternative Jordan trip rather than leave my workmates to cover me for another week.
It did allow me to empathise with Moses when he reached Mount Nebo and looked over The Promised Land but was forbidden to enter because of a row with God.
I’ve been trying to get on God’s good side praying furiously in lockdown… I don’t want to give HIM any reason to block me.
And this one you’ll get if you’re from Edinburgh or are a fan of the Scottish capital.
The city was known as Auld Reeky on account of the smell which came up from the lochs, or lakes, across from the Old Town.
Which was dredged and made into today’s Princes Street Gardens with bridges put over the new land to the newly-built New Town.
Athens of the North
And the architecture inspired the name Athens of the North.
And why am I telling you this?
Because Edinburgh Airport is resuming flights again to Greece https://athensattica.com and https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/dresdens-renaissance-martin-luther/europe/my-greek-odyssey/.
And France https://www.google.ie/amp/s/about-france.com/mobi/index-amp.htm, and Italy http://www.italia.it/en/home.html.
And here’s how I see it… The Boat D’Azur and The Lourdes prayer. And https://www.google.ie/amp/s/jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/04/11/padova-city-of-frescoes/amp/, Small roads lead to Rome and https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/08/04/see-rome-on-e50/.
What a difference a year makes
I’m reminded that this time last year I was being entertained by Etihad www.etihad.com on board one of their planes in Dublin Airport,
And although none of us knew then what was coming down the tracks I was struck by how adaptable and innovative Etihad were.
And it will serve them well as they set out their plans for flying to more than 50 destinations worldwide.
Now with flexible fares and the opportunity to change the date of your flight for free if you need to.
Well, well, well
I’ve already told you about their Wellness Ambassadors at every point of your journey. And a wellness kit.
All’s well then!
MEET YOU IN THE SKIES
