Here are some pictures from my school’s trip to the Negev desert two weeks ago. (Pictures are better quality if you click on them!)

Israel, you are so beautiful.

First day hike: Nahal Peres

Relaxing after a day of hiking

Naomi and Me! Hanging out at the campground.


The place where we stayed is awesome!
This is one of the main rooms. Perfect for hanging out, card games, jam sessions, and ridiculous talent shows.

…And hammocks everywhere!

Hiking day 2: Beautiful Leah!

Can you find me in the picture?

Dead Sea

Playing in the Dead Sea

Ben and I reppin’ BCI at the Dead Sea!

Hiking on the 3rd day: Ein Gedi

New Friends

Taking a water break!
Andrea, Tamar, Me, Cara

Gone Hikin’!
Many of my classmates are raising money for “Movember” (men’s health), hence the creepy handsome mustaches.

My girl, Cara!

Lovely ladies!
