I do things with words, mainly English and Arabic
This month’s Wanderlust magazine features a full-length piece on independent travel in Palestine, written by Matthew Teller, author of the Rough Guide to Jordan and a seemingly unending list of other books and articles on Middle Eastern travel. It covers much more than the usual Jerusalem-Bethlehem-and-a-nightclub-in-Ramallah itinerary seen in the few articles on West Bank travel that have appeared – and bits of the itinerary bear the stamp of George Rishmawi of Siraj, an untiring and passionate advocate for innovative, insightful travel in his beautiful country (I’m fairly sure it was George who put me on to the gorgeous little guesthouse in Sebastia too). The full Wanderlust article is scanned here.
Thanks to Matthew for the cheers to the Bradt Guide (“the only guide you need – expertly detailed, knowledgeable and bang up-to-date”) and PalestineGuesthouse.com.
