Arrivée à Tel Aviv

·      Si vous voyager avec quelqu’un, soyez d’accord sur le scénario commun. Si vous n’avez pas développé de scénario commun, mieux vaut faire semblant de ne pas se connaître. Ne parlez pas de la mission. L’excuse du pèlerinage est toujours bien venue. Et prenez avec vous un « bête » guide d’Israël ou de Jérusalem, entourez-y par exemple des lieux touristiques que vous projetez d’aller voir etc.

·      En cas de problème, notez le numéro de téléphone du « duty officer » qui est de garde à l’ambassade belge de Tel Aviv (en cas d’ennui à l’aéroport) :

GSM. 00 972 544 679 536 - Fixe : 00 972 3 613 81 30

·      Adresse Hotel Jérusalem à signaler à l’aéroport

New Victoria Hotel Jerusalem

8 Al-Massudi St.

P.O.Box 19374

www.4victoria-hotel.com

·      quelqu’un vous attendra à la sortie de l’aéroport à partir de 00.30 avec un bus et un signe “Victoria Hotel”. Nous paierons ensemble à la fin de la semaine pour l’ensemble des trajets.

Programme

·      Vous trouverez la feuille avec le programme définitif également attaché à ce mail. Nous serons bien les deux premières nuits à Jérusalem, et trois nuits à Ramallah au milieu de la semaine (mercredi – jeudi – vendredi).

Budget

·      Le mieux est de prendre ce que vous avez besoin en € avec vous, et de le changer petit à petit au fur et à mesure du voyage. Ou sinon, des ATM permettent de retirer de l’argent pratiquement dans toutes les villes. N’oubliez pas si vous le désirez de débloquer votre Maestro. Il faut pour cela que vous vous rendiez dans votre agence. Les VISA et Mastercard sont ou sinon utilisables.

Hôtel

·      Jérusalem (2 nuits + 1 pour ceux qui arrivent le samedi): S : 60 $ (45€) - D : 40 $/p (29 €) –T : 40$/p (29 €)

·      Hébron (1 nuit) : S : 120 NIS (25 €) – D : 180 NIS (35 €) - T : 220 NIS (42 €)

·      Ramallah (3 nuits) : S : 50 $ (35 €) – D : 65 $ (45€) – T : 85 $ (60€)

·      Sabastiyeh (1 nuit) : pour tout le monde : 120 NIS (25€)

·      Ce qui fait un maximum de 250 € d’hotel (sans compter le samedi pour ceux qui arrivent un jour plus tôt)

Bus

·      Prévoir 150 € pour la semaine. La somme sera payée en fin de semaine.

·      Comprend le trajet aéroport-hôtel, ainsi que le transport pendant toute la semaine.

Alimentation: Environ 200 € pour la semaine devrait être plus que suffisant.

Souvenirs : Il y aura moyen d’acheter des souvenirs dans certaines associations que nous visiterons.

Habillement

·      Les journées seront chaudes (25-30°C) mais les nuits risques d’être plus fraiches, n’oubliez donc pas de prévoir des habits chauds pour le soir.

·      Nous rappelons que les débardeurs, mini shorts et mini jupes ne sont pas les bienvenus. Pour être à l’aise, mieux vaut porter des vêtements couvrant.

·      Certaines nuits, nous devrons nous regrouper à plusieurs dans des chambres. Tenez en compte pour le choix de votre pyjama.

Bonus

  • Les organisations qui nous reçoivent le font généralement bénévolement. Ce serait chouette si chacun d’entre nous apportait une spécialité (chocolat, sirop de Liège, …) de sa région afin de les offrir sur place. Evitez les bières et alcools, mais aussi des fromages qui risqueraient de rendre les trajets en bus odorants J
