About The Trip

Day 8 – My happy place

iceisrael July 18, 2018

Hi! My name is Zach Schwartz, and I am from Dallas, Texas (home to the greatest football team on earth). I chose to be a part of NCSY Israel ID, not only to make life long friends and have the experience of a lifetime, but to create a deep and everlasting connection with the land of Israel.

Yesterday was a day packed with so many memorable experiences and unforgettable moments. It will easily be one of the main highlights from this trip. We started off the day in our daily Chaburahs where we enjoyed learning with our advisors about very relevant topics that apply to every day activities. Next, we went repelling down a thrill-inducing cliff and ate lunch in a beautiful woodsy area. Shortly after, we went touring through water caves carved out decades ago. We also enjoyed the ever-expanding view of the Rosh Hanikra coastline under the bright silver Israeli sun. Later, we biked across the golden beaches showered by an orange-scarlet sunset. To top off another amazing day in Israel, we had delicious homemade pizza for dinner. If I could live every day like this one, I would be the happiest person alive. I can’t wait to have more days like these throughout the trip.
