The final day of our trip and we have just over 100 miles to cover to reach the airport. But first time to explore Mitzpe Ramon. We head for the sculpture park overlooking the crater. It is still early, there are more ibexes than people and they take a keen interest in us.
The journey to the airport is more complicated than expected, the old and new private motorways run in parallel and Google maps keeps trying to divert us from one to the other. Plus we need petrol; it’s pay at pump and the instructions are only in Hebrew. A fellow motorist takes pity on the old man and helps with the transaction.
We arrive at the airport with plenty of time to check out the quirky Ben Gurion statues and convert our spare Shekels into duty free chocolate.
