Israel

In December 2015 I had the chance to go to Israel with my best friends. Like anyone, I said yes.

I didn't take amazing pictures or worry about capturing every moment, but we ate, laughed, and drove our way through Israel with a small army of us, so I wanted to share some of the snapshots to give you a peak into one of the most incredible trips of my life.

It feels like a decade has passed since that trip, so the details are fuzzy. I figured rather than piece together my story, I'd just share a few and let you really witness the adventure through photos.

A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

The trip kicked off an a long flight through Philly to Tel Aviv.



We landed at night and drove to Jerusalem, settling in before running out for some falafels.



The mornings were b e a u t i f u l and sleepy and lovely.






We filled our days at museums, mostly, but sprinkled in a few nice views and a whole lotta laughs, too.







We picked a persimmon from a tree and were obsessed with it (we'd never tried one before)... so it got its own photo shoot with us.







 I don't know what this place was called, but it was beautiful.

After a few days in Jerusalem we took the road to Eilat, stopping at the sea level marker off the highway where Shushi (the camel) waited for us.





He was a delight.





Back in Jerusalem, things stayed beautiful.





The food was amazing. Every. Single. Meal.




The Red Sea had the richest blue water.






And then we took off for the Dead Sea and were faced with the most stunning scenery.



LOOK AT THIS WATER.



The red rocks across the Dead Sea are actually a part of Jordan, not Israel.



We detoured to on our way back to Jerusalem with a quick stop at Masada.










And spent our last afternoon visiting the Western Wall/Wailing Wall back in Jerusalem before taking off for Tel Aviv.




And that was it! In the blink of an eye the trip was over. It was more beautiful than I could've hoped for - every minute of sunshine was like being in the midst of golden hour.

I hope one day I can go back, and spend more time learning the history and interacting with the friendliest people in the cafes and on the streets. Truly a jaw dropping experience.
