You may or may not know this but I have just recently returned from a 10 day trip to Israel. It was amazing! such a beautiful place filled with so many great people. I was able to partake on this trip thanks to Taglit – Birthright, an organization which sends Jewish youth to Israel for…wait for it….FREE! I am so grateful to have had this experience and definitely plan on visiting Israel every year if I can. Pictures do not do it justice but below are a few to sum up my adventures.

Tons of Olive trees!


The open-air markets were exciting and overwhelming places to explore.

Who doesn’t love a camel at Sea Level? We stopped for this photo-opp on our way to the dead sea.

Shak Shuka – an egg and tomato combination that is out of this world. I’ve got to head to work in a few but I’ll be posting more photos of the trip later this afternoon!
