When we hear about the Palestinian Territories in Western media, we often get images of war, conflict and terrorism. Being so close to the West Bank during my visit to Jerusalem, I couldn't help but experience myself what Palestine was really like. 

It can't be denied that the shadow of occupation and repression is quite prominent, however, what I found couldn't be more different to what I was expecting: lively cities, ancient sites filled with history and friendly people willing to do anything they could and more to make you feel welcome.
