Alternative Travel Opportunities
Alternative travel in the Holy Land provides an added benefit to pilgrimage by connecting you with the Living Stones of Palestine who live under military occupation. Visit the holy Christian sites, worship in ancient Palestinian Christian churches, walk where Jesus walked and bear witness to the realities of occupation — military checkpoints, refugee camps, Israel’s Apartheid Wall, bypass roads, illegal settlements and more. This Alternative Travel page is a service of Friends of Sabeel—North America. If you know of other trips coming up, please send details to: firstname.lastname@example.org

The book is illustrated with color and black/ white photos and, of course, maps of all sorts. In fact, in quality, it equals any traditional guidebook. The book is $30 and may be ordered at Palestine Online Store.
