Definitely an interesting idea. I'll post the link so others can read up on it. www.walkaboutlove.org

Sounds like a great adventure and I'm sure you'll have lots to contribute to the boards after undertaking something of that nature. Good luck and stay safe.

remember to request israelis to give you papers instead of a stamp... i hear you can do that. while you're there you might as well visit lebanon, i hear its great.

who the syrians? i suppose its possible, but the syrian border guards were pretty good to me. It also helps when you're on a train.

Btw, the train from Instabul - Aleppo, Syria cost me like 80+ Turkish lira. It was worth it.
