Heaven is a place on earth. It is called Sinai.

Heaven is a place on earth. It is called Sinai.
Crossing over the border from Southern Israel into Egypt lies paradise- The Sinai Peninsula. Small  palm leaf hooshas right on the crystal clear Red Sea waters edge. Hammocks and cushions to spend the days sprawled out in, moving only to take a dip into the psychedelic underwater world that lies thriving beneath the Sea. Clams pursing their neon lips as you pass them. Fish of every colour darting between the abundant coral. An entire city emerges as the reef drops a mere 3 metres from the shore. An eclectic mix of Israelis, cool kids from Cairo, sprinklings of Europeans and even another South African all sitting together around the fire as music lulls us to sleep.
This paradise run by bedouins that all speak fluent hebrew from the days when Israelis would spend every free moment they could in the area. Their calm and relaxed nature adding to the ease at which this special part of the world lets you feel. Special it is. There are not many parts of the world I have fallen in love with as hard and fast as I have with Sinai. There is a feeling you cannot explain.
I was met with mixed emotions when deciding if I should visit at all. Deemed dangerous since the bombings, many fear the area is unsafe. Perhaps naive but knowing the problems lay hundreds of kilometres away I never had an inkling of fear. Choosing to believe I have nothing to worry about, my safety at risk in any destination. At the same time I find it hard to imagine that 10 years before there was a bombing right on the beach that I lay.How sad this world has turned into a place where we fear to go certain places. Living on some geo-political map marking parts of the earth we think are ours. Each morning sleeping outside I would watch the sunrise from behind the hills of Saudi Arabia and think how no matter who owns this, no matter who decides to claim this land or says we cannot visit it, the sun will continue to rise and this land will always be this beautiful. We are are a fleeting moment of life in the grand scheme of things. How silly it seems to not be able to experience and appreciate this incredible world that we live in. How beautiful is this life given our magnificent playground.
