Podcast conversation with Beth Spack.

Israel is a dynamic, diverse country – with a complicated history and a complicated present. Beth, born in the US and a resident of Israel for the last 30 years, has a breadth and depth of knowledge and expertise that I love to draw on. For many travelers who may have teens/college kids who are studying this part of the world – it’s an incredible experience to be there in person – to learn from real people instead of simply a book.

We talked about the experiences you can have in the cities, the desert, the water, and everywhere in between. Lots of fun ideas for active families who love to experience the authentic culture of a destination.
