    Bring A Water Proof Camera

    by machomikemd Written Oct 2, 2013

    Photo Equipment: You will need a good and tough waterproof camera to take pictures and videos of your activities in the holyland and if you want your camera to be blessed by the various holy springs and waters in the holy land like Yardenit Baptism Site, Kinneret, Sea of Galilee, Mary's Spring, etc. you can dip your waterproof camera in these places!.

    there are man good waterproof all weather cameras like the panasonic lumix, the olympus tough, the canon d20 or if you have the dough, get a GO PRO sports camera and video.

    Nothing beats taking a video while in the water and then viewing your recordings on a big LED tv.

    Bring a Powerful Zoom Camera and Video

    by machomikemd Written Oct 2, 2013

    Photo Equipment: If you are the intrepid shooter of lots of films and videos on your travels, then you must have a powerful optical zoom camera like a canon sx50 (which has a 50x optical zoom) or a nikon coolpix 510 (42x optical zoom). They are less bulky than the DSLR cameras and the zoom capacity lets you view and shoot objects and pretty girls from far away. Also have the new large capacity SDXC cards, which are better than the regular SDHC cards which can hold only up to 32 gigabytes of memory as compared to the SDXC cards which now have up to 256 Gigabytes of memories. perfect for shooting full hd videos and taking pictures at the same time as the new cameras like the canon sx50 and olympus sz-31 MR can do.

    also bring the new USB powerbank storage device (preferably the 8,400 mAH up to 15,000 mAH variety so that you can do multiple recharges on camera battery before recharging your USB powerbank), which can easily recharge your camera battery plus smart phone and tablet devices.

    Bring Sun Glasses

    by machomikemd Written Oct 2, 2013

    Luggage and bags: you need to have sunglasses as to protect your eyes from the heat here specially during the early to late afternoon during the summer season, where the temperature is high. the sunglasses will protect your eyesight from dizziness and heat blindness. as the walls around the Old City of Jerusalem are light colored and you can get sun glares too, moreso if you are walking along Mount of Olives Area and the Temple Mount Area.

    Reading Book: "Oh Jerusalem"

    by iblatt Updated Feb 2, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: If you only take one reading book with you, I strongly recommend "Oh Jerusalem", written by two journalists, Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins.

    It basically tells the story of Jerusalem during the 1948 war from both Jewish and Arab perspectives, maintaining a balanced view. The authors present a fascinating account of Jerusalem's history and ethnic mix not related just to 1948 but with a much broader historical perspective.

    The book is very readable, and is the result of three years of research and interviews by the authors.

    Reading material: an amazing book about Jesus

    by midnight_mike Written Apr 30, 2007

    Miscellaneous: If you want to learn more about the man behind the Christian faith but you don't want to commit yourself to reading the Bible, there is one book which is better than the rest. Leith Anderson's "Jesus: An Intimate Portrait of the Man, His Land, and His People" (Bethany House, 2006) combines all the books of the New Testament with some valuable historical insight from the author. Jesus lived 2,000 years ago, but Anderson makes the events of those times seem like they happened yesterday. Plus, Anderson writes in a clear and concise manner. You will not find any Old English terms such as "art" or "thy" which make reading the New Testament difficult for even native speakers of English.
