2016/04/01-02 聖地朝聖第一、二天 / Holy Land Pilgrimage, 1st & 2nd Day

我妹妹,蔡怡文,和我已經計劃要去聖地朝聖。我希望在我們的寒假去(一月下旬至二月中旬)或暑假(七月至八月),這樣不會擾亂我在學校的上課時間。 但是,在這些時間,都沒有朝聖包,因為冬季太冷和夏季太熱。無可奈何,我們決定參加 The Pilgrims' Center 所安排的朝聖包 (2016 年四月一日至四月九日。)

全部的第一天都花在行駛。凌晨上午(0115 小時)我們搭飛機(ETIHAD 航空公司)離開 NAIA,馬尼拉,往阿布達比,轉移到另一架飛機前往阿曼。從阿曼,我們坐遊覽車去約旦/以色列邊界。 從以色列邊界乘坐遊覽車前往加里肋亞的提庇黎雅到我們的旅館(Emily's Boutique)。那時已經下午傍晚了。從旅館可以看到加里肋亞海。

第二天我們參訪的地方:葛法翁,耶穌所住的城鎮 → 大博爾山,耶穌變了容貌的地方 → 納匝肋,天使報喜聖堂 → 聖若瑟聖堂。

My sister, Yvonne Chua-Lih, and I had been planning to take a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I wanted to go during our winter vacation (late January to middle of February) or summer vacation (July to August) so that I will not miss any of my classes. But during these times, there are no pilgrimage package available as it is either too cold during the winter or too hot during the summer. Reluctantly we decided to join the pilgrimage package arranged by the Pilgrims' Center on April 1 to April 9, 2016.

The whole of the 1st day was spent practically travelling. We took the plane (ETIHAD Airlines) and departed NAIA, Manila in the wee hours of the morning (0115 hours) for Abu Dhabi, transfered to another plane for Amman. From Amman, we took a bus going to the Jordan/Israel border. And from Israel took a bus going to our hotel (Emily's Boutique) situated in Tiberias, Galilee in the late afternoon. From the hotel you can see the Sea of Galilee.

Places we went on the 2nd day: Capharnaum, the town of Jesus → Mt. Tabor where Jesus was transfigured → Nazareth, The Church of the Annunciation → The Church of St. Joseph.
