Breadcrumb: No vacation plan

It turns out that according to Lev. 21:10-12, the high priest of the Israelites was not allowed to leave the sanctuary of God. While he had a great job, full of prestige and responsibility, there was no chance to go explore the world beyond the courtyard. It's almost as if the U.S. president needed to live in the whitehouse for his entire life once he was sworn in. On the other hand, while the Israelites were travelling in the desert for 40 years, the high priest may have seen quite a bit, provided he liked sand.
