Boarder crossing Egypt-Israel
I will be going to Egypt and Israel in June and I was wondering how difficult it is to do the border crossing? Is there anything in particular that I have to consider when crossing the border? The German foreign office advises against crossing the border between Egypt and Israel at the moment. It is said, that I should avoid the Gaza Strip (which is obvious why, especially atm) but it also says that going through the Sinai can be dangerous for western tourists, due to risk of kidnapping. I´m flying out from Tel Aviv, so I will have to go to Israel, or change the flight if necessary...which is really expensive...
Has anybody done the border crossing from Egypt to Israel lately and can give me some advice please?
Thank you very much in advance!
