This semester in Tel-Aviv has certainly been one to remember, and for good reason. From day 1 we have been immersed in a completely new culture, challenged to live on our own for the first time, work, and make new friends. We have been in an environment which has pushed us all and I couldn’t be more grateful. From being able to hike down dry river paths in forests to learning a new language, and learning to free diving to over 10 meters underwater without oxygen in Eilat on sea sports, the opportunities we have been given, have allowed so many of us to develop and improve as people. I will be going into my second semester in Jerusalem with high hopes and I am glad to be able to do it with one of the best groups of people I could ask for.
