I returned on Tuesday, February 11th to the US from my week in Israel. I must say that it was probably the greatest trip I have taken so far in my life. The people are so welcoming, the scenery is stunning, and the food is delicious. From the moment I saw it from the window of the plane as we were landing at Ben Gurion until the moment I boarded the plane at night early Tuesday, I was hooked. I cannot wait to return again. Being in Israel made me feel amazing. There are vacations that as they end, you get a bummed out feeling about leaving, but with Israel, I felt actual sadness that I had to leave. I just want to find a job at an internet start-up and move there.

I wanted to share some of the photos I took while in Israel (Updated with additional pictures February 18, 2014):

I am so excited to return to Israel. It was an experience that I can’t stop talking about. Words can’t describe the feeling you get the first time you see the Western Wall in person… Magical.
