On the other hand

August 1, 2022, was a momentous day for all Israeli citizens aged 75 years and over.

From this date, public transport became free. It means that buses, both intercity and local, as well as train rides and light rail, can be used by all those eligible without any charge. All one has to do is swipe the relevant card on boarding, sit back and travel anywhere in the country without paying a fare.

For all pensioners over 75 who use public transport this most welcome development should be a big help in managing everyday living expenses. As far as those hard-core car drivers are concerned who have never contemplated stepping onto any form of public transport, they will just have to keep paying ever-increasing fuel prices and the frustrations of ever more traffic jams.

Nothing is more satisfying than whizzing along on a train and seeing bumper-to-bumper traffic bringing cars to a standstill. Extra bus only traffic lanes are being built and this will also alleviate matters.


 With overseas tourists thankfully now arriving and school holidays in full swing there are many tourist sites being enjoyed by groups.

If you have not yet managed to visit here is an interesting peek at one of Israel’s beautiful nature reserves.

The Romans might have been here along time ago but if they came back today they certainly wouldn’t recognize the stunning national park in Caesarea.
