Our last day together was spent in Tel Aviv. We couldn't check in to our hotel early, so we found a place for lunch (TONS of vegan options here, it's so hard to choose!) and then we walked to the market to pick up a couple of last souvenirs before we leave. Then we were able to check in, change and hit the beach! I got in two hours of 30 degree sun to work on the tan while Josh worked on his second book of the trip. I dipped a couple of times in the Mediterranean and then we headed back to the hotel to reorganize.
Later on we had drinks by the sea, watched the sunset and we reminisced about our trip. We talked about how it feels like ages since we'd been in Kenya; we've done so much since then! Overall our trip went incredibly well - Egypt was a little rocky, but we still got to do most of the things we wanted there including seeing the pyramids up close. Israel had the most amazing food, but was by far the most expensive. We both agreed our highlight was river rafting the Nile and getting to know all of the Ugandan guys on board. But we both miss Kenya so much. I really could live there!
We're up bright and early for our travel days, Josh to Victoria and me to New York. We were both stopped and put through extra screening in the airport, something I've read is quite common for Israel. We were separated to check in on different floors, but we met right back up at the additional screening! Perfect timing.
I got coffee and we sat together for a few minutes, now currently Josh is taking off and I'm waiting at my gate. I'm so sad to be parting ways but I'm excited for all New York has to offer! My partner in crime for the week is already there and having a blast.
It was hard to choose only 9 selfies, but here's a little recap of our trip in photos
