Jerusalem - Our Last Day

When visiting Israel, one must experience all kinds of weather. This morning, we admired the hail that came pelting down as we shivered in our swimsuit shorts, ready to walk through the water system that is known as Hezekiah’s Tunnel.

It was our last morning at the Sea of Galilee. Today we would be traveling along the East-West road between Bet She’an and Caesarea, two Roman culture inspired cities. Bet meaning “house” and She’an meaning “security” or “strength,” we can imagine the type of city this was. However, the...

The best way to start a morning in Israel is to bathe in the salty waters of the Dead Sea, and that is exactly what we did. It was an incredible experience to float freely and leave feeling refreshed before heading out on another full day of adventures. We had three stops along the Dead Sea that we made...

We had arrived late Saturday night to our hotel in a small village on the outskirts of Jerusalem and many of us were still adjusting to the time difference from Southern California. Before long it was 1:30 AM and some of us were still tossing, trying to get some sleep before our early start. At 7 AM...
