If you want to visit the Holy Lands and have a guided tour, go visit my grandfather across the street from RHCC and take your slide projector and an afternoon. He will tell you all about it. He worked hard all his life and to my knowledge only got on a plane once and would never do it again only to walk on the same ground that Christ did and to see the places that he has read about for so long. He is 94 years old. If you want to sit at the feet of greatness and soak it in. Go visit him. You might even go away wanting more of just one thing.
