Israel, love that place..

Postby GertJan Verspui » Thu Jun 12, 2014 10:27 pm

May 17th - may 25th I was in Israel for the second time, not with my friend Jurgen this time, but with a changing international crew: Sjuul Verhaegh from the Netherlands, Dan Rosenberg from the USA, living in HongKong and Kristian Munkholm from Denmark.

My Israeli friends Aviad and Guy were also with us a couple of times!

I wanted to see some new species and show my buddies as much as possible, it was a week with not al lot of sleep, but with lots of good moments.

I made a report about this week: ... l-05-2014/

I think I want to go there again....









Thanks for watching!

I had the chance to discover some pictures on you facebook page, and it's again a pleasure to see those shots here. The vipers are particularly fantastic :!: 1 viper like that = 1 hour of sleep ;) Thank you.

Gert Jan

Another great report, another great trip from one of Hollands premier league field herpers...

Good to see (though I am extremely jealous) pictures of some of the snakes I missed on my visit ..predominantly bornmulleri..and nice to read about an old school hard core trip.. not one of these loads of sleep, comfy bed, five meals a day trips..

I assume there was a naked day ?

Cant wait to go to Israel again myself after I get my small euro list slightly more premier league..

Kind regards
