Taste of Israel~~104 Hours to Fall in Love~~

Taste Of Israel

Imagine the exhilaration when I opened my email one hot August morning while I was traveling and saw this email from Israel!  Who was emailing me and why.  I mean I was like ‘what’s this?’  Spam?  Well, I read on, and I was blown away. I was honored. I was dancing and twirling with joy. 

Travel to Israel

After checking it out then sharing it with Ben and our friends (who we were visiting in Durango), I took a deep breath and realized I was in for an incredible adventure. One that I’d never believed would happen. One that I know will change my life. And, all for the better in so many ways that I don’t even think about at this point.

Traveling to Israel

I am going to Israel.  I am one of two Americans invited by Taste of Israel to be part of a special group.

Visit Israel

So what is ‘Taste of Israel‘?  A once-in-a-lifetime experience to discover Israel through its culinary delights and diverse cuisine.  Seven acclaimed bloggers, photographers and journalists, from the fields of lifestyle, food, and travel from all over the world, will come together to see Israel like no others have!

As one of these seven international bloggers I’ll be experiencing Israel, her food,  culture, and her people…close up and with events like none other!  To see what I’m going to be doing, just click and check it out,  Taste of Israel

I’ll be blogging about this experience. I’ll be taking pictures galore. Shooting videos. Sampling everything that I can wrap around my brain and on my tastebuds, cataloging these unknown pleasures and then writing about them, from my first-hand perspective, and sharing with you!  No idea why I was selected.

I just know it’s a ‘God Wink’ that’s meant to be and one that I’m truly humbled and honored to be part of.

    1. Mary Sue! What a beautiful and touching comment…thank you! I’ve read some of the blogs of last year’s participants, and you’re so right, the spiritual impact was much more poignant than the food and other culinary adventures.
