how to plan a wedding in 10 days!

Day 3: Visit the Agorim!

When planning a wedding in ten days (did I mention in Israel?!) its important that you have yourself a little break! So on Saturday we took one day to ourselves and went up north with friends to Emek Hulatha to see the millions of birds from all over the world that migrate across Israel every autumn. Pretty much every family in Israel also came out for a beautiful walk in the northern countryside, near Galilee, to enjoy a rare opportunity for birdwatching. We rented a golf cart and were given a very special tour from our good friends Yoni and Rina. Rina took the wheel and gave us a very 'thrilling' ride around the trails providing us with much history and education about the agorim. I felt like I was on the show Wildboyz! If they are casting, I have to say Rina would make an excellent companion to Steve-O and Chris!

After, we had a nice dinner in Rosh Pina which is up the mountain close by to the birds. It is all cobblestones and beautiful little stone cottages. We didn't get to spend much time there but it is definitely on my list of places to explore in the future.
