The Big K & Israeli Backstreet Superstars

One of the things that I love about traveling is meeting different types of people from around the world and interacting with them.  My trip to Israel included roughly 10 or 15 Israelis otherwise known as our babysitters, 2 women from China and Singapore otherwise known as the kids, an Australian, and an Indian known […]

The South Sudan Visa Project

November 2011 UPDATE I have officially dropped off my passport at the South Sudan Embassy in which I will return tomorrow to pay for the actual visa.  The only places where you are able to get the visa are Nairobi, Kampala, and Ethiopia.  If you read the story below you will find that I had […]

My 13 Day Trip Israel

I can’t really begin to describe how amazing the trip to Israel was.  I got to see a side of Israel that is so far from the conflict that is always described on the news.  The Israel Ministry of Tourism, Stand With Us, and the entire Once In  Lifetime Crew did a great job of […]

Learning How to Speak Hebrew (Basic Expressions)

Hebrew is one of the oldest languages that is still spoken today.  While traveling to Israel I was able to pick up on many of the basic expressions to get around such as “are you single” and “you are very beautiful”.  Oops, wrong blog!  Its a bit harder language to pick up since the vowels are […]

The Unspoiled Beauty Of Seychelles

The Unspoiled Beauty Of Seychelles

This is a Guest Post. Seychelles is an African country of 115 islands, all of which on the Indian Ocean. Most of its islands are uninhabited, unspoiled by civilization. The archipelago lies northeast of Madagascar, off the coast of East Africa. It’s surprising how most people here speak French and English, although the locals are […]

The Tomb of Jesus has a certain aura around it.  To be in front of such a significant place for so many people really hits you hard.  Another thing that was extremely interesting is how people behaved inside the actual chamber and also how thousands of people lined up to enter the Tomb of Jesus. […]

Dead Sea Reflections: The Jordan Border

When we were visiting the Dead Sea we actually had a crazy idea of swimming to the Jordan border.  Being that you can’t put your eyes underwater under fear that your eyes would sting for days we forfeited that idea.  This picture was taken as we were leaving the Dead Sea in Israel.  I can’t […]

The Israeli Beauty & The Beast

You remember the story right?  Gorgeous girl meets really hairy man and they fall in love.  I have to tell you there are a lot of beauties here in Tel Aviv and a lot of hairy men too.  Hairy women? Not so much.  The situation in Israel is a love and hate relationship.  They love […]

The Faces of Jerusalem: The Clergy Man

I mean seriously, how cool is this guy.  He is one of the few people that was very nice about getting his picture taken in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel.  I really don’t know what else I can say about this guy.  He was chilling where Jesus’ tombstone is in Jerusalem, automatic cool points.  And look […]

A Word Describing Travel to Israel: Sababa!

Mud Bath at the Dead Sea

Traveling to Israel has always been on my list but I never thought that I would actually get a personal invite by the Israel Ministry of Tourism.  Last night we had an event where we met many of the people involved that brought together the Once In A Lifetime Project.  There was a moment where […]
