For me, it’s the excitement of the unknown that makes touring fun. The off-the-beaten-track sites of Israel are what attracted me to educational tourism. Not very different than how I felt as a child wandering through places I shouldn’t have been, I am drawn to the sites that are not often traveled or explored.
The Western Negev is such a place for me. Bordering on the Gaza Strip and the Egyptian Republic, the Western Negev is full of surprises.
