When in the Galápagos Islands, we were on a small raft boat getting a closer look at the wildlife when a playful sea lion jumped right into our boat. Everyone was screaming; it was certainly memorable!
What culture/experience surprised you?

A great book, snacks and my camera.

Airplane seat covers.

In Tuscany, we stopped in the medieval town of Radda in Chianti and found a little pottery shop where we were able to design our own dishes. I love eating on them everyday as it reminds me of our time there.

While in Israel, our guide invited us to his home for a traditional Israeli Shabbat dinner. It was delicious! We met his wonderful family and seemed to all get along despite the language barrier. A very memorable evening!
