One Year Ago Today

I just spent the past weekend in Santa Cruz (which I will be writing more about). And while I did have a great time it doesn't quite compare to what I was doing at this time last year. What was that you ask? Well let's see, last year on June 16, 2008...

I hiked up Masada to watch the sunrise.
Myself and Sara as the sun rises

Had a second hike at Ein Gedi, that ended at a waterfall.

Floated in the Dead Sea

Covered myself in mud from the Dead Sea to beautify myself

Arrived in Jerusalem
Sunset over Jerusalem

Where I discovered a bar named, "Shoshanah's Bar"
Shoshanah's Bar!

Crazy to think how much can change in a year!


P.S. I went to Israel on Birthright Israel with Experience Israel, if your Jewish, between the ages of 18 to 26 and you haven't been on Birthright yet... well what are you waiting for!
