Welcome to Israel

First week in Israel done. Once we found our base in an artist village near Haifa we headed north to the Golan region. On the way we passed through the ancient city of Akko, exploring the narrow lanes & streets before continuing on to our destination of Kibbutz Merom Golan near the Syrian border. After wondering the apple orchards & vineyards of the region we headed to an old army station to wonder the bunkers used in the six day war. From there it was back to Haifa to explore the stunning Bahai gardens. Next its off to Tel Aviv, let the party begin x
