So our story begins in Michigan, why Michigan? Because there was only one thing in common for all the people who visited Israel on this trek, they were all Michigan MBAs who decided that Israel is a perfect place to start their MBA experience at and joined this bonding trip known as Mtrek.


 Our first few days took us to the northern part of Israel; after spending a night in Hertzeliya, along the Mediterranean beach, we traveled to the spiritual city of Safed and explored its narrow allies and special atmosphere, we then drove to the Sea of Galilee and visited Tabgha and Capernaum. To cool down, we went to kayak at the Jordan River where we found ourselves engaged in endless water-fights and experienced some superb kayak boarding and flipping techniques.

The following day was dedicated to the beautiful area of the Golan Heights; we traveled to Mount Bental , one of the tallest mountains in the Golan and had the opportunity to see the Golan from above and take a look at the Syrian border. After filling our stomachs with a special Druze lunch at Nidal’s in the village of Masa’de we headed to the Yehudiya trek where we jumped into the cool water of the Yehudiya stream and spent a couple of hours chilling ourselves from the high temperature.


 Our last day at the north started with a visit to Acre’s knights’ halls and famous market where we had one of Israel’s best Homus at Said’s. The northern experience concluded traveling to the city of Zcihron Ya’akov where we visited Tishby winery, had lunch and tasted some of their great wines . Our next stop was Jerusalem – but that’s a story for the next post.
