Hi there, I am a 74 year old guy, and I live in London uk. My ambition is to travel to Mt. Sinai and visit the monastery of st. catherine. I do have some health problems concerning my legs, and I would like to know how i could easily reach the monastery regardless of cost. Thanks
Question about Mount Sinai
You should contact Wind Sand and Stars - http://www.windsandstars.co.uk/ and speak to Emma Loveridge - they specialise in walking itineraries in the Sinai and I am sure could help you!
If you take the right tour bus, it will drive you all the way up to the door of St. Catherine's. Once you're inside the place, you'll have to walk. If you come in the morning, expect (VERY!) large crowds. If you want random photos of my travels there in '07, check out http://www.linearconcepts.com/photos/2007-israel-04.asp
