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