We'd been talking about going to Israel on and off for a while on our travels but when a house sit in Jerusalem suddenly came available we felt that the fates were telling us something. So off to Israel we went. This is a complicated place, as anyone will tell you, and the history is staggering.

We saw much of the country - from cosmopolitan Tel Aviv to religious driven Jerusalem to the southern Negev Desert and all the way up to Haifa and the Sea of Galilee. There is a staggering amount of things to see and do in this small country. You will not find yourself without activities to feed your mind, your spirit and your body. We came to Israel for a challenge and are so glad we did.
