A map of Israel, just to give you a picture and to help you follow our excursions and outings. You can see the Negev desert in the south, the Dead Sea on the border to Jordan, the coastal region of the Mediterranean in the west, the major cities Beer Sheva, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, the Judean desert, the Sea of Galilee, the Galilee and the Golan Heights, and Mount Hermon. Jordan is to the east, Lebanon in the north and Syria north/east. Eilat and the Red Sea in the far south. We live in central Israel, a little bit east of Kfar Sava.
Israel is very small, actually pretty tiny. There are only about 500 kilometers from the border to Lebanon in the north till Eilat in the south, and 60 km from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
To give you some proportion and a better understanding here is a map of the surrounding countries.
