Travel and tourism is not a new thing to people. Designed by Italian architect Piero Lissoni, guest rooms at this cutting-edge property are clean-lined and spacious, with expansive views of Shanghai’s glittering skyline. Part of the boutique Swire Hotels group, it’s known for its intuitive service that’s simultaneously gracious and cool. Not once did we and other group members feel endangered. The streets were busy with tourists, natives, and school children going or coming from school. Life in Israel for the most part, was business as usual. There’ll be more trips to Israel, travel insurance God willing, and this time we’ll be going with the kids, and maybe, some friends. @travel_man1971 – I bet you will have a memorable trip too. Israel is really a great place to visit.

The Cargo Freighter Straat Clements would not wait for us, and we were still over 1.100 Km’s away. Just outside Leonora we came across a town that looked like it had been hit by an Atomic Bomb. It was called Malcolm. Bits of huge machinery and house brick all over the place. A few of the more solid brick homes were still standing and we choose the best one to camp in for the night. Malcolm was going to be Australia’s largest gold mining town, and they even built a huge dam for its water supply, but the whole place closed down in 1940s. Today you find nothing there. All the bricks have been removed by locals to build new sheds or garages etc. Nothing to find on Google Maps either, only the old Malcolm Station. You can read more about Malcolm in my book, and see rare footage of a ghost town. Our next stop was Leonora. A rail link from Kalgoorlie opened in June 1902 and still operates today. Leonora became the largest center on the North Eastern Goldfields and by 1908 boasted 7 hotels, general stores, chemists, tailors and bakeries.
