A Taste of The Holy Land

So after a month of traveling around Israel the Samtredia gals and I have finally made our way back to little ol' Samtredia. It was my second trip to Israel (my first being the 10 day Taglit Birthright trip). However, this trip was made special by our decision to couch surf around the country rather than stay in hostels. We met such amazing people that showed us the true Israel and Palestine. Since 30 days is a lot to cover in one little blog, I'll let my photos do the speaking....

We spent Christmas in Bethlehem...the birthplace of Jesus!
