We had such a wonderful trip to the Middle East earlier this month. Here are just a few of my favorite photos that documented our travels to Israel:
fun nails - comfy outfit - good reads - Hasidic Jews
And we're off...
(overlooking the Mediterranean Sea)
Bet She'an // columns & baths
I picked at Roman mosaic floors… and got away with a little treasure!
Boating on the Sea of Galilee // Tiberias
Mount of Olives - Capharnaum
(that Katniss braid lasted all day)
(near Dead Sea Scrolls)
Floating in the Dead Sea
Jerusalem // Dome of the Rock
pastries - Old City (Jewish Quarters) - jewels - carpet hunting
Pools of Bethesda - Garden of Gethsemane
There were so many other places that we went to… all wonderful. Needless to say, it was a trip of a lifetime! My very favorite place is Jerusalem, specifically Ben Yehuda and the Old City. I love being where the locals are!
And I know most of you are wondering about that Turkish rug that I had been dreaming about. Well, it was nowhere to be found. I just wasn't sold on any of the Kilim rugs that I came across. There was only 1 thing that I debated on buying… a fun lumbar pillow. I ended up talking myself out of it. Surprise, surprise. I came home empty handed. Good thing I already have some incredible souvenirs from my former trip to the Holy Land. :) Can't wait to go back again...
