Using my newly established skills as an amateur geographer, I compiled some of our trip’s most memorable moments into a map compilation to better tell our story. Click on the picture to see the story of where we traveled!

The night we rode camels and ate with the Bedouin tribe was awesome. Three courses of lamb, chicken, hummus, and more vegetables than you can imagine; all prepared in an authentic Bedouin tent, in authentic Bedouin fashion. Absolutely couldn’t beat this experience.
Today we climbed Masada, a mountain that overlooks the Dead Sea. The weather was outstanding with a high temperature of 72 degrees for the day. Later in the day we visited the Dead Sea.

First night in Jerusalem we treated ourselves to some fire pitas. Shown was half of a fish shawarma and a ground lamb pita that were to die for; not to mention Arak on the side! Bon apetít!
