I recently returned from a life changing trip to Israel. I had never been to the Middle East before, and it moved me in so many ways. As an American, my sense of culture and place isn’t very deep rooted by comparison. My country is young compared to a place like Israel where traditions run deep. There were so many moments that ignited my senses and my soul and so I wanted to share an itinerary here with you to consider should you find yourself on a trip to Israel or contemplating it. Israel and the area surrounding it, is the story of us, and to go there and walk the paths of our history is to get to know yourself better and enrich your life in more ways than you can imagine. You will do it in sights, and sounds, and cuisine. In prayer, in hikes, and in intellectual discussions. Below is my Israel journey, I hope you will share your tips with us in the comments if you’ve been there. You can view my full Israel Travel Itinerary Here.

Georgia Pellegrini

Growing up on her family’s farm in upstate New York, Georgia developed a passion for simple farm-to table food and a deep connection to the outdoors. Having worked in the finance world after college, she decided to leave her cubicle and reconnect with her roots. After graduating from the French Culinary Institute, she began working in Michelin restaurants in New York and France, and soon started leading her renowned Adventure Getaways: excursions around the country aimed at promoting “manual literacy” and helping participants step outside of their comfort zone and experience life more viscerally. Georgia is a firm believer in empowering people to be self-sufficient, identify personal strengths and pursue their life passions.
