So that your trip may also be special, we have endeavored to share some of our lessons learned.
Our trip to Israel really started four months before our plane touched down at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport, when we decided to make the trip and the planning began. Add the time in Israel, thirty-three days, and the fourteen days in reflection upon return and the entire experience has encompassed a total of close to six months! Since we have been home, we have been asked so many times, "so what were the highlights?" We pause and take a deep sigh...it's one of those impossible questions! How do you possibly single out a few ingredients in a gourmet meal? Isn't it the total of all the ingredients combined and prepared just so, along with the environment and the people that make the dining experience? What we do know is that we had a fantastic time and we would highly encourage others to also make the trip! It's not only about visiting sites that you have heard about since you were a child. Israel is an extremely interesting country, one that gets under your skin and touches your heart and soul. It may be a trip unlike any other you have taken.
