Arrived At Heathrow? Welcome To London

Heading to London Heathrow? The easy part is finding a flight. The tricky bit is getting from Heathrow into London itself. Take a few minutes to check out the options.

The London Underground (a.k.a. The Tube) is a good option if you're comfortable with public transport. On the plus side it is cheap. There are also a few negatives. First of all, check your hotel's address and see if it's near to a tube station, and if so, what line. If you're near the Piccadilly line that's good, but you still need to deal with the fact that the Underground was designed for commuters with briefcases, not travellers with kids and two pull-along suitcases. If you're arriving at peak time - i.e., 7 through 10am, or 4 through 7pm - be prepared for lots of crowds and jostling. That could be an unpleasant experience; if you have a family group with you, consider other options.

Hula Valley in Israel - A Paradise for Birds and for Bird Watchers

For thousand of years, swamps covered most of the Hula Valley and served as a home for tens of thousands of migrating birds and many types of rare plants and fish. Following the drainage and drying project, begun in 1951, in which 14,800 acres of swampland were drained in order to free land for agriculture, it was decided to preserve a small area of about 790 acres of swampland as the first nature reserve in Israel and one of the most important, particularly for those interested in bird watching.

During the migration seasons, from Africa to Europe in the spring and from Europe to Africa in the autumn, the Hula Valley, part of the longer Jordan valley, serves as a transit route for migrating birds, and the Hula swamps are a transit stop for thousands of cranes, pelicans storks and various types of birds of prey.
