Over the weekend, we took our last trip together as a group while we are in Palestine/Israel. We went up north to see an old crusader citadel in Akko. It was extremely well preserved and a really cool insight into crusader times. Then, it was on to a campsite on the Mediterranean where we got to swim, watch a beautiful sunset, enjoy a great BBQ, and of course, light stuff on fire. It was very relaxing and enjoyable. The next day we toured the Golan Heights and saw a vineyard. I don't particularly like wine, but it was cool to learn about the wine-making process, sample some of the various kinds, and eat some great food along with it. While the experience was rather expensive, it was a wonderful reunion of the group and a relaxing way to spend our last before we reconvene in Tel Aviv to wrap things up.
