Should I be afraid of Ebola?

While Ebola kills 70% of people infected with the virus, to catch it you must be in direct contact with an infected person’s bodily fluids. The disease is not airborne (though could be carried through a sneeze). In addition, most nations have travel bans or health screening in place. As of October 31st, Canada stopped issuing visas to anyone who has visited the Ebola-affected West African countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone within the past three months. The US allows travelers from those countries to land at a limited number of airports and actively monitors them for 21 days. See safeguards implemented by various countries. If you are considering a tour in Africa, check http://healthmap.org/ebola for Ebola cases and deaths reported by the WHO.

Oberammergau Passion Play
Oberammergau Passion PlayOberammergau 2010
Once again, the familiar story of Jesus of Nazareth will be retold by the residents of Oberammergau.  This is truly a community event as nearly half of the villagers will come together on the stage of the Passion Play.  To many of them, the oath of their forefathers represents the beginning of a great theatrical tradition.  To others, it is a legacy, a solemn duty. 

TourMagination invites you to experience this memorable tradition. Register for one of our Oberammergau tours  or one of our one- and two-night mini-packages to Oberammergau. Please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it today to request a brochure for the tour of your choice and the registration form. A deposit of $400 per person is required to reserve your seat and play ticket.

TourMagination is holding space in Oberammergau at the beautiful  Hotel Turmwirt.   The hotel owner/operator, George Glas, has reserved first-class seats for the Passion Play for our tour participants.

Each TourMagination tour will have a focus, either within Europe or other countries close by.  The Passion Play will be integrated into the tour schedule.  The play involves 1100 amateur actors drawn from the local population.  It lasts an entire day.  The tradition derives from a vow made by the inhabitants of Oberammergau in 1633, after a plague when their village was spared from death.  Join one of TourMagination's tours to see the Oberammergau Passion Play.
