My 16 Favorite Photos From Israel

My 16 Favorite Photos From Israel

SHARE

I cannot wait to start sharing my hilarious, embarrassing, and somewhat life-threatening experiences in Israel (yes, you read that right).  You’ll see what I mean in the near future- just continue reading :)

I hold this trip near and dear to my heart, and cannot believe how much I truly learned about the world, as well as myself, during my short time in Israel.

I conquered my fears of the unknown.  I trusted those I just met with my life.  I ate local food and participated in local customs.  I became friends with Israeli soldiers, and just by hearing their stories, have taught me to be brave.

I climbed a mountain, was delighted by the hospitality of the Bedouins, managed to stay afloat in the Dead Sea without stinging my eyes out, and watched possibly the most beautiful sunrise.  I tested my reliance on new-found friends along a midnight walk (shooting stars included), rode a camel throughout the Negev Desert, and tested my balance atop a donkey (which didn’t turn out for the best…)

That being said, before I dive in right now, I want to share some of my favorite photos during my two week trip around the country.

Enjoy!

First views of the Negev, simply breathtaking.

Gorgeous views on our treacherous hike down Masada.

Sunrise atop Masada, was definitely worth the strenuous hike up the mountain at 4am.

We did it!  Hiked up and then DOWN Masada (which was even more difficult).

Rugula from the Jerusalem markets, I could eat it all day every day (if it was allowed)

    Nice photos! Love the one of the palm trees at the Dead Sea.I've been to Israel a few times, most recently last month. Such a fascinating country to travel around! Did you make it up to Nazareth? I went for the first time on this visit and really loved it – totally a surprise favorite.
