Israel Trip Highlights

As I get plugged back into the internet, I have been trying to recall EVERYTHING I have done in Israel thus far. If I did not write things down along the way with whatever writing instrument I could find, we would have a much shorter list. Of course, there will be more to come as I explore Israel.
Of course, no travel blog is complete without pictures! Enjoy the slideshow!
