This totally unexpected agent trip to Eilat Israel happened back in October 2009. Seven days of sunshine, luxury hotel, Red Sea, coral reefs, dolphins, history and desert heat! Can’t tell you how excited I was. Eilat Israel is a resort town located in the South of the country, with only 11 km of coastline it’s tiny and compact.
Frequent travelers may hear this question a lot – What was the least safe country you have been to? Especially those who travel alone. What makes a country dangerous for a tourist? Surely some countries are portrayed as least safe countries, even violent against foreign visitors. In most cases they are not safe for their citizens either. As Tom Perko mentioned at his TED talk, the people are mostly friendly everywhere, but it’s the media that creates these images. Also there are rumors, that neighboring countries create about each other which in fact are not true at all. There are, however, real stories, when people end up in unpleasant situations and feel threatened.
