The last stop is where life truly begins.

This is a community travel blog for everyone who wants to show the world the most desolate, beautiful, moments of their life.

The Laststopping philosophy has its origins in cold Russian winter nights, where adventurous souls travel to the end of the metro line in Moscow to catch a glimpse of real Russia and drink the night away in foreign environs.

It has since evolved through the actions of hundreds of people in numerous countries to imply a life long desire to seek out situations, places, and emotional experiences where the Last Stopper can experience being "the other," whether that be at the end of the line, the end of the earth, or at the end of sanity, love, and beauty. Travel not required, but it does help. Call it a turning point, an end of the world, or something that moved you, whatever it is, please share your pictures, video, or words with us.

This site has been created to catalog the world's geographical, spiritual, and emotional Last Stops - please share yours with us, click on "post a last stop" below!

Far outside Hebron on the road to Susiya, near Yata. A small Palestinian community with an Israeli outpost watching over. If the Palestinians leave the land, their few possessions and makeshift structures will be removed. The Israeli government considers them to be squatters, though they say they have been herding animals here for many generations.

Cruising through the kilometer long Erez crossing from Israel into Gaza. There are little golf carts that go back and forth all day, for free!

You check out at Israeli passport control, through a turnstile and a door that opens mysteriously and then slams shut behind you. The crossing takes you to a Fatah checkpoint. Then you take a taxi for three shekels about two minutes down the road to the Hamas checkpoint. After they check your bags and documents you enter Gaza proper. Perhaps one of the strangest kilometers on earth, which qualifies it as a last stop.

The town of Bethlehem is in the West Bank, which the Israelis are slowly and methodically walling off. When this portion of the Israeli separation wall is done, the entire southern half of the Palestinian West Bank will be de facto disconnected from the world economy, except for one small crossing at Bethlehem. Just like Gaza. 

Last stop for many a pilgrim and tourist alike, Bethlehem is also a last stop for every Palestinian living in the southern part of the West Bank, or it will be soon. This is part three of three highlighting some graffiti protests on the wall at Bethlehem.

The town of Bethlehem is in the West Bank, and the Israelis are slowly walling off the entire West Bank. When this portion of the wall is done, the entire southern half of the Palestinian West Bank will be economically shut off from the rest of the world as the only place any traffic will be allowed to cross is through a one-truck-wide hole that is heavly guarded by machine guns. Basically creating an economic situation not unlike the one Gaza is experiencing.

Last stop for many a pilgrim, Bethlehem is also a last stop for every Palestinian living in the southern part of the West Bank, or it should be. The next couple posts will be graffiti protests from the section of the wall there.
