Wordless Wednesday – The Traveling Jewess

And I’m back! After four weeks of non-stop international travel, I’ve finally returned to California for a few weeks rest (before my next adventure). I loved my time abroad, but I’m excited to stay in one place for more than three nights.  For those who don’t know, I spent two weeks in Morocco and two weeks in Turkey. I would highly suggest both places and would happily give recommendations for anyone traveling to that part of the world.

I have a few too many stories and more than 1000 photos, but today (for Wordless Wednesday) I thought I’d share a few of my favorites that I took.
