Israel was our Country of the Week. We delved into the contentious history as well as the fascinating culture of this intriguing country. There’s a lot more to Israel than meets the eye and you can see it HERE.

Our Travel Guide took to vibrant cities, historical sights, and natural wonders in equal measure as we traversed the surprisingly diverse country. Get our guide HERE.

In our Currency Spotlight we delved into the Israeli shekel. You can learn more about both the country’s currency and economy as a whole HERE.
