Updates from Israel #Bus162

162bAfter a long day of traveling, the group was happy to arrive safely at Kibbutz Afik in the Golan Heights yesterday evening. We woke up early this morning for breakfast at the Kibbutz and headed right to the Sea of Galilee, where our guide Maxi gave us an overview of what makes the area so special. We went to two more beautiful overlooks, as well as an olive oil press where we got to taste different olive oils and try some of the Olea Essence cosmetic products (pictured below). After a delicious lunch including shakshuka, shawarma, and of course hummus, we headed to the Tiberias hot springs for a relaxing sunset in the heated pools. The group just finished up dinner back at Kibbutz Afik and is preparing for an evening of music with Gilad Vital.  After playing some fun icebreaker games earlier today, we are all becoming comfortable with the group we will share the next 10 days with.
