Shortly before our scheduled trip to Israel and Jordan we embarked on an Elderhostel trip to study world religions. Seems like apt preparation! We gathered in New York for a day of investigating Judaism. Then we boarded the Queen Mary 2 for several days crossing to England. During the crossing we met daily for a lecture on the origins and meaning of religion. After arriving in England, we traveled to Oxford, by way of Winchester, to continue our studies there. After the planned portion of the trip, Jim and I spent a week on our own in England. In retrospect this has been one of our favorite trips (I'm finally getting the info online in 2012). Please join us!
