Travel

I went on Birthright Israel and it was AWESOME!

You guys! Hi! I just got back from Israel and I am so excited to share some pics with you.

Travis and I went on a Birthright trip to Israel organized by Israel Outdoors and we had such an amazing experience. Birthright is a free, educational 10 day trip to Israel for Jewish young adults between the ages of 18-26. I’ve wanted to go for many years, but I was never able to make it work due to college athletics, internships and work. This was the last year Travis and I could go together due to age eligibility, and I am so fortunate we were able to get on a trip together this March.

We traveled all over Israel for 10 days with 37 other Americans between the ages of 22-26. It was an unforgettable experience and I know so many of the friendships we made will be life long.

There is SO much I want to share about our trip, but I feel like I would end up writing a novel (and ain’t nobody got time for that!)

So instead, I am going to share a bunch of photos from the trip and do my best to caption each in 5-6 words or less! Many of the places and words in the post below might be unfamiliar to you, so I’ve hyperlinked to some further explanations in case you’re interested 🙂

Okay, here goes!
