A FAMILY going on a sunshine break to Israel are sure they will be safe because it is on the government list of green countries.
The Bradfords have booked ten days in Tel Aviv for beach days, evening cocktails watching the sunset over the sea, and cannot wait to do nothing but relax.
Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “Simon fancied Spain, but even though you’re allowed to go there it’s on the orange list. I don’t want any stress.
“Eveyone’s talking about Israel right now so I was worried all the tickets would have been snapped up, but even last minute there’s loads of flights. I couldn’t believe our luck.
“I double-checked there’s no Covid restrictions, found a lovely hotel, entered my card details and packed my bags without a second thought. I’ve also booked us a day trip to Jerusalem, which is really historic and religious.
“My sister went ‘Israel? Right now? Are you sure?’ I don’t know what that was about. She’s only going to Aberystwyth, so she’s just jealous. I’m going to get an amazing tan.”
Husband Simon said: “Am I worried about the escalating violence in the region? Nah. It’s not like our government would willingly let its citizens put their lives at risk, after all.”
