Southern Israel: Bonding at the Top of Masada

From the Qumran Caves to the Dead Sea and Ein Gedi Oasis to a Masada pilgrimage, Southern Israel created a once-in-a-lifetime bonding experience. Knowing a place means knowing its history and its people, and an early morning hike gave Robbie the unforgettable chance to do so.

“We visited underground ruins, witnessed many groups of people from different regions and cultures on pilgrimages to holy sites. We hiked Masada at 4:45 am via the snake path in order to see the sun rise from the top. It was a beautiful sight and a great bonding experience, not just with each other, but with the history of the country we are trying to learn about.” – Robbie
