Day trip to Safed and rafting/ By Samantha Erasquin
The trip we did to Safed was definitely one of my favorites.
Being in the car and listening to music in Arabic and Hebrew while we were on our way to Safed was the best way to begin our journey. When we arrived to Safed I remember seeing so much blue! Safed was so high up in the mountains and every house had something blue in it. It was extremely beautiful! When we left the van everyone noticed how clean the air was, and how nice the environment around us was. We meet a Rabi in the center of Kabbalah, which explained us many things about Safed, its people and his own philosophies of life about many things. We visited a really beautiful synagogue and after we had a walk with our guide through this Jewish city.
One of my favorite things about this city is how spiritual it was and how you could even feel it while being there, I also loved how our tour guide was so philosophical, it made this part of our day be perfect!
After leaving our tour guide we had some shopping time in the main area of the city, which was full of unique crafts, colors, smells and people from everywhere! After our shopping time we went to eat to a restaurant with the most typical delicious food and talked for a while.
At the end we went rafting, where we all had an amazing time not just because of the rafting itself, but also because of an attack we suffered from another boat! It was a lot of fun to try to escape from them splashing all water around us! I ended u completely wet but I couldn’t stop laughing. After we left our attackers, out journey in the river was really nice and we could see a lot of cool nature.
We had so much fun that it seemed like a really short day when we came back to the University late on the evening.
