Few places on this planet stir up as much passion as Israel does. Aside from political allegiances, Israel is a deeply beautiful country with an intricate, often confounding heritage and an abundance of layers to uncover.
Granted, this was a press trip and I only barely scratched the surface of Israel’s complex ramifications. But as expedited as it was, this trip left me wanting more, as Israel is simply not a place you can tick off your bucket list in a matter of a few days.
But we’ve all got to start somewhere, haven’t we?
* A note on territories. I am not an expert in borders nor do I pretend to be; I ask you to be mindful of that before you throw rocks at me. As far as I know, every destination below is, as of publication date, officially part of the state of Israel.
