Caves of Maresha and Bet Guvrin

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 06-Sep-22

Caves of Maresha and Bet Guvrin

A close second with Masada as the top non-Jerusalem site in Israel, and that's because while Masada looks epic it doesn't have much else going but at the caves here you can explore so much, get a good idea how they used this place with limited availability and it can take a long time to hike everything.

The second art cave in the "back" is currently collapsed but the nearby shop gave me a nice picture to understand what I'm missing. It's probably possible to descend and look around but it's not a wise idea. The one next to it is already pretty great. I also really enjoyed getting led through a cave with odd markers that I never thought would bring me back out but it really did and on the way you get to see the presses, some kind of flooded area and entryways that seem unnatural.

Zerzevan Castle and Mithraeum (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 05-Sep-22

Zerzevan Castle and Mithraeum (T)

I'm not a fan, and not just the site but also of the idiot who designed a roundabout on the highway that if you are heading back to town you either have to drive the wrong way for a long time or you do the smart Zoe thing and slowly drive against traffic on the shoulder to reach that roundabout and go the correct way - something you learn in Thailand. You'll know when you see it!

For one most stuff up here is in rubbles and I can't say it's put back together quite well either. Second, Mithras temple is off limits so you don't even get to see what is apparently the best part. It's all free to visit but surely doesn't excite anyone if you passed through Turkey seeing better places which you undoubtedly did.

Sarazm

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 19-Aug-22

Sarazm

Feel a bit cheated spending all morning to get here but at least it didn't cost a lot of money and the local Tajiks are very happy to see foreign tourists visit - not that many will actually pass the border crossing from the guard's astonishment to see one.

So I did this from Samarkand which is only 1h by car

Cocos Island

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 16-Aug-22

Cocos Island

Cocos was my favorite liveaboard until I had dived even better locations after. Just reaching the island is a 36h boat ride from Costa Rica mainland and usually you'd think the boat entertains the visitors for the spare days but with the Aggressor it was just you relaxing with others or on your own.

You'll reach the island overnight and admire its beauty in the morning. Welcome to Jurassic Park! The steep cliffs, cloudy forests on the peaks and wonderful animal life passing by (birds, dolphins, sharks) is a good start

Lagune de Khnifiss (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian - 05-Jul-22

Lagune de Khnifiss (T)

The lagoon of Khnifiss (also called Naila and marked so on Google map) is a small area of wetland just off the coast. This is an easy detour if you are doing a road trip to Dakhla but a tough one if not, and the only other things to see in the area are beach and cheaper gas (subsidized?) so fill up your tank before heading north!

I knew that coming to the lagoon in summer would be a generally bad idea but I definitely would not come here at a better season just for the birds. I think the lagoon is, like many places in the world, important for bird breeding grounds but protection and unique world heritage material are far apart.
