Jeremy was brave enough to ask a group of soldiers on break for a quick pic together. What a cool memory. Thanks, Jem!
I squeezed the guy’s shoulder standing next to me and he couldn’t stop giggling.
A holiday is one thing but travelling is another and you can’t call it travelling without connecting with the people.
Meet Candice(left) and Romy on the right. Candice is South African and Romy was born in Israel.
A good client/friend and also friend to a cousin of mine, go by the name of Kathy. Kathy mentioned her sister whom currently lives in Israel on a kibbutz. Of course, she had my full attention with that funny ‘k’ word and I wanted to know more.
Candice and Romy live on the Kfar Giladi kibbutz. Long story short, we met with them and what a great mother and daughter relationship they have. We cherish our time with them and loved learning about their lifestyle.
We were there at the time of Pesach which is Passover time in English terms. Their Pesach is celebrated in a traditional way, a festive meal that involves the re-telling of the Exodus through stories and song and the consumption of ritual foods, including matzah bread and maror (bitter herbs).
It was only after we had left that we realised how lucky and blessed we were to have experienced this once-in-a-lifetime moment with amazingly beautiful inside and out people.
Thank you, Candice and Romy for opening your home to us and for helping to arrange a place to stay. We are very grateful to you. Thank you, Kathy. Xxx
