Israel 2012 {Part 1}











































After a five hour flight to New York and an eleven hour flight to Tel Aviv, we were exhausted to say the least but relieved to finally be there.
Our tour bus took us straight to the Kibbutz Ein Gev, where we made our home for the first week or so.




















It was located right on the sea of Galilee.




















Where we sat each evening discussing the day, writing in our journals, and emailing friends and family.











































Here's a few photos from our first week in Israel.




















Boat ride on the Sea of Galilee.





















River of Jordan.












































Arbela Overlook.



Drinking from a spring Christ would have drank from and the path he would have walked from Caana to Nazareth.





















Mount of Precipice, overlooking the city of Nazareth.




















Prior to entering a Mosque. We often had to cover our heads with scarves.




















The city of Acre or Akko located on the Mediterranean Sea. It's one of the oldest inhabited sites in the country.







The best fresh squeezed orange juice there ever was! The poor children were a little overwhelmed and our cups kept getting less and less full by the end of the line.

Next, I'll share some photos from an excursion to Jordan.
