If you want to avoid the hassle in Egypt and Jordan is your destination, why not take the ferry from Monfalcone (Italy) to Ashdod or Haifa (Israel) and cross the border Israel – Jordan at Allenby / King Hussein Bridge ?
[... What about ferries to Israel from Cyprus or Greece, then Sinai into Egypt? I suspect an Egyptian land border may be better than a port and as it's been there lately, they may even wish you hurry you through...]
Ferry from Cyprus? Is that feasible / available Chris? Who runs it / any idea how to book?
Reason for asking, we're supposed to be taking off to Africa in a Defender late spring 2013 but need to be in Cyprus for a month first. Was starting to panic about having to 'brave' the Turkey / Egypt ferry. Ferry Cyprus to Israel sounds like a good plan.
Any problems with having Israel stamp in the passport?
Isn't it mentioned here somewhere?
AFAIR reading, you ferry from Turkey to North Cyprus, cross to the other Cyprus and ferry on to Haifa, I think it was.
I believe there is also a Greece to Israel ferry but it's expensive.
In Israel they can stamp a loose bit of paper I am told. The Egyptians obviously dont mind and I think the Sudanese will only pick up on it (clocking your Egypt entry point...) if they want trouble. Which normally they don't.
$900 one way is a lot. I've paid the same to Tunis and back, but that is a busier route and I recall someone mentioning 1000 € to get out of israel this year - possibly to Greece. May be worthwhile as fuel is so expensive in Turkey and if it is Mersin port, that is a 1000 mile drive in Tk.
Thanks Chris. It all sounds pricey - I guess thats the Egypt route for you!
Main criteria has to be ease and lack of hassle.
Which route would you recommend to South? East coast or West? Ultimately I think we'll do a full circuit, but I'm a bit concerned about East coast visas / politics etc.
I was thinking of posting a general question (unless you know of a thread?).
AFAIR - nice. Sorry, but of a web numpty.
