In 75 days I depart from Chicago O’Hare on my way to Israel. I am so excited to go to a country with so much history, both religious and non-religous. I will be departing on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 and returning to the United States on February 11th. It will be the farthest I have ever travelled from the United States. I know that there is so much to see and do that it will be impossible to take it all in over my 6 day trip. I’ve already been planning itineraries for future trips to Israel too! haha!
While in Israel, Tel Aviv will be our “base” and we will be spending time exploring there and, of course, spending a few days in Jerusalem, since there is great bus, sherut, and taxi transportation. I also may have us rent a car for part of the trip as well! I will look forward to blogging about my trip.
While in Israel I will also be missing one of the class periods of the Intro to Judaism class I am taking as part of my conversion process. I have been told it won’t be a problem, though!
I am so excited to go to Israel I can barely hold the excitement in!!
