Raquel Gadaa kept a daily diary on her Birthright Israel trip where she documented her experience over 10 days. Now she's opened it up for us to get an insider perspective on the journey of a Birthright Israel trip participant. Thank you so much for sharing!
My Birthright Israel trip experience was unlike no other, which is something that can really be said for anyone who has been on a trip. One of the best things about Birthright Israel is that no one leaves with the same stories, but we all leave with 40 new friends and a different perspective on Israel. We also all leave having a bigger emotional bond with Israel, and the people we met while exploring it. While on my trip in August 2018, I took daily journals highlighting the things we did so that I would be able to look back at them when I get older. I don’t want to ever forget the amazing memories I made.
