PILGRIMAGE: (Egypt to Israel)

Ever since my family emigrated 'back' to Australia, I've fantasised about visiting them overland/surface. By closing my front door in Bristol, and arriving at my Mum's house in Sydney, I imagined I'd feel more connected to them, knowing the distance for what it really is and being able to paint all the details in-between.

I was keen to take the journey via Egypt, the birthplace of my father, to Israel via the Red Sea, symbolising in a poignant way for me my own spiritual journey as a Christian. It's perhaps even more interesting and special to me that we've managed to go by surface to Jerusalem rather than all the way to Mum's.
