Looking back at the toughest day of the 2 months on the Shvil Yisra’el: 12 miles, climbing up, hiking on the edge of this bastard and climbing down again and then add another 3 miles with 25 kilos on your back and feet covered in inflamed blisters… it can be felt!
However, if it wasn’t for this; I wouldn’t have met the incredible people in Midreshet Ben-Gurion: Friendships in the Desert a big part of what made it an amazing journey.

  1. You went hiking in the desert?! Were you with a tour or on your own? This sounds more like a pilgrimage than your average vacation ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I don’t do vacation lol! Yes, I went hiking, on my own. It was extraordinary! Me and the wild and the still. And then the people I met now and again along the trail. They are called ‘trail angels’ offering those who do the Shvil Yisra’el (Israel National Trail) a place to stay,perhaps a shower, laundry and a meal. Some of them became close friends. The trail runs through the country from North to South. For me, it was only the desert that was calling though. Strayed from the trail often, to hike other trails too. I might go back one day and do the Northern part of the trail. We’ll see ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I’m happy if some of it spills out beyond myself ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thank you!
