I’d like to go to Baalbek, and see the temple of the sun. Indeed I’d like to visit Syria. But these days I tend to insist on 5* hotels!
Some weeks ago I saw Voyages Jules Verne’s Restoration Story tour. Seven days, including three in Beirut, including a trip to Palmyra and Baalbek. It sounds wonderful.
But of course the political situation is a factor. I have no desire to get involved in Near-East politics! The Lebanese election this week returned a vaguely sensible government; but I think I will wait a little and see whether it calms things down before booking.
I’m in the process of dumping my existing credit card provider; when the new one comes through, I’ll look at this again.
Postscript: or maybe not. Their September departure won’t accept any single travellers. Oh well.
