Ok so drenched. I got drenched this morning. Soaking wet, backpack soaked, hair, underwear everything.
Made it to Ein GeV and its Shabbat so most places are closed but there was thankfully a tiny store that sells olive products open – Olea Essence – they incredible. Check them out.
They made me coffee, took me and refused to let me go! Fed me the most delicious lunch and I spent the day with a lovely lady and two guys. Israel is filled with such beautiful souls. They arranged for me to stay at a hostel – as I have no money, I am going to volunteer at the hostel for three weeks then I get to sleep and eat for free lol.
We sped down the highway listening to ‘smooth operator’ with the rain pouring down.
I have a bed, four walls and new friends. I had to buy clothes from the second hand shop because I left most of my things back in Tel Aviv and only have the essentials in my backpack for camping. Of course my clothes are soaked as well!
So pause for three weeks.
When I’m done here I will continue around the sea and hike the Golan heights.
I’m warm. I miss the silence and the hiking and the adventure. But God does it feel good to have a warm shower after 5 days and rest my head in a pillow and not my jacket!
It is so ironic. I have always been so fortunate. Never in my life have I had to take the cheapest room in a hotel! And now I have to work just to get a bed to sleep in…
By the way, Ed is chatting loudly!
