Not my first rodeo!

I've been home for about five days now. The trip home was long and exhausting and the jet lag has been brutal. I keep falling asleep around 7pm and waking up at 3am. Here is a little recap of how I got home: It was hardly Thursday when our alarm sounded at 1:45am. I was… Continue reading Not my first rodeo!

Goodbye, for now

We're back in Alonim. I'm not happy about it but I'll only be here for a few more days. I wanted to stay in Binyamina next to the Sea. Someone else lives in that apartment now and we're off with the wind, only knowing it takes us to the US. This Tuesday is my birthday… Continue reading Goodbye, for now

The Old City Part 1

We finally made it to Jerusalem! If it wasn't for Ram's doctor appointment I don't know when we would have gone. He isn't very fond of Jerusalem. Luckily for me he didn't have much of a choice this time. After visiting Israel twice for about eight months total, it was about TIME I went! It's… Continue reading The Old City Part 1

Desert Shenanigans Part 2

Our main reason for this trip was to see Masada Fortress. Masada fortress overlooks the Dead Sea from atop a huge rock plateau, who's all sides are massive cliffs. From what people told me and from what I read this is the popular belief of what happened there. During 73-74 CE the fortress was under… Continue reading Desert Shenanigans Part 2
