The sun is shining, school is out, and summer reading is in full swing! I’ll be taking my own summer vacation for the next two weeks, traveling Israel on a trip sponsored by Birthright. I’m looking forward to seeing some of the cultural and historical sites — the Western Wall, the Holocaust Museum, the Golan Heights — as well as just experiencing life in another country for a little while. I always like to immerse myself as much as possible in the native culture when I travel, so I’ve been brushing up on my Hebrew and am ready for some good falafel!
Rather than abandon my readers for two weeks, I’ve scheduled some posts in advance that will be published while I’m abroad. However, I’ll have limited Internet access, so don’t be offended if I don’t approve or respond to your comments right away. Most likely I just haven’t seen them yet.
Have a great couple weeks! I’ll be back in July, hopefully with a whole new set of stories to share.
