Catholic Theological College Bible Lands Study Tour 2012

With thanks to both the Catholic Theological College and the Ecumenical and Interfaith Commission, I was privileged to join 19 other pilgrims on the Bible Lands Study Tour in 2012.

While I was travelling, I kept a daily diary on the blog of the places we visited and my thoughts and reflections on the tour. I have collated these blog entries into a single Word document which can be downloaded from my Dropbox account here.

I have also made two albums of pictures using Photobox, a web-based photo album printing service. The first covers my journey in Jordan and Israel, and the second covers Turkey and Greece. To preview these, click on the pictures of the album covers below. The album will take a few seconds to load, and I have found that the pictures may take a little while after that to fully load up (sometimes the cover picture appears to be the last to load), so you may need to be a bit patient at first. I suggest you click the button at the bottom right of the preview screen to choose the “Full Screen” option for the best viewing experience. Use your cursor to click on the arrows to read through the books. If the slide show starts and you want to stop it, just click on one of the pages of the book and it will stop so that you can turn the pages when you are ready.

Finally, if you are interested in viewing all my photo collection for the journey, they can be viewed/downloaded from my Dropbox account by clicking the links below. Please note that you don’t have to have a Dropbox account to view these photos (but if you don’t have one and want to set one up, please use this link which will give both you and me some extra free space!)
