“What was you favorite part of Israel.” It’s been the nonstop question that I have received since returning from my trip on June 25th, and I still don’t think I have an answer to it.
I chose to go on Birthright with Israel Experts because I had friends who recommended the trips.
On July 31st at the JFk airport, I met 38 strangers all going on the same Birthright Israel with Israel Experts trip as I was. Upon our return, I realized in just ten short days the 38 strangers and the Israelis I met became family. Everything about my trip to Israel was profound.
Get ready for an unorthodox opinion, but the best part of my life-changing birthright trip was that I learned to be happy with alone-time. Stay with me here, y'all, though it might be hard because I know we hear "alone" and immediately equate that sensation to "friendless" or "lonely." But my trip on good 'ole #IR36305 taught me that alone can be a beautiful thing.
