I arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel safely. Traveling solo wasn't the worst. Sure... the airports get a little boring, but I watched like 4 movies on the flight to Tel Aviv. One of which was "Flight of the Navigator" which I hadn't seen since I was a little kid. I was blown away that movie was even an option to watch. So I watched 4 movies, ate and slept. Then I was in Tel Aviv.
I went through passport protection and got my backpack and waited for Deb to get there from Switzerland.
2 hours after I got there... Deb arrived and we were ready to start our adventure! Although Deb and I had only met once (when she couch surfed at my house one night with her friend Allesandra a year and a half ago) I wasn't worried that we would travel well together. We are both laid back and have traveled a bunch and travel in the same way.
We were going to have a blast. :)
