First day jitters of excitement hit us the moment we touched down in the airport. The long eleven hour flight was well worth it at that point. Although we were a bit scattered on the plane all of us from New York had already created a great bond with everyone from Houston! Everyone is so cool and we were quite surprised to see all the similarities between us. It also didn’t take much to fall asleep that first night, call it jet lag or pure exhaustion. We are so excited to continue this journey through the great country of Israel.
