Thank you for commenting on The Good Travel Life webiste. Unfortunately, I am not a travel agent, but the Bahama Bay Resort webiste ( is easy to make an online reservation. Once you put in your travel dates (top right corner), up pops a page on accommodation sizes (including square feet and floor plans) and prices. The smallest villa is 1200 square feet with the largest (3 bedroom) over 1700 square feet. Very spacious! The reservation line is 877-299-4481.

Dear Saeed it is an excellent movie and I think that pitutng Hatikva at the end of it is brilliant. Yes, now it is your hope (Tikva) to live freely in your country and land. We have been abusing our hymn since we established Israel.The pictrues of your village people on their donkeys, waiting for the soldiers for two hours and later their broken heart after they saw what has been done to their trees brought tears to my eyes, anger at my country for doing this to you, and the understanding that the soldiers do not realize what a cruel and unfair regime they are implementing.I do hope this will end soon and till then I support your struggle and pray for you and your father.Yours, Miri
