Coreyoria World Tour

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”

The Wide World of Coreyoria

Playing Catch-Up

Okay, so I obviously went to DC & NYC quite some time ago, but good things take time? Heh, anyway ... I finally uploaded the pictures a few weeks after my return, got them up online sometime soon thereafter, and am FINALLY posting about it. But I decided it would be easier if you just looked at my photos through Flickr. It's kind of like a photo story, more or less, when you watch the slideshow. Good times were had. When I visited Amy in DC, the weather was gorgeous and I was able to walk everywhere. The cherry blossoms were a bloomin' and we went ice skating and life was grand. I got to see a lot and walk a lot. DC gets two very enthusiastic thumbs up in my book.

I then visited Brendan in CT and we went to NYC for a few days. The focus was very much on vegan delights (i.e. food). You'll be able to figure that out from the pictures. We tried everything from vegan calamari and crabcakes, to raw sesame meatballs. Unfortunately the weather was crap, but we still tried to make the best of it. There are some great night shots of the skyline from the top of the Empire State Building.

And lastly, but not leastly I visited my aunt, uncle and cousins at their home and got to have fun spending time with them. Alas, I traveled back here to St. Louis and have been staying all too busy. I recently had my wisdom teeth removed and the recovery has proved quite rough. I'm glad I won't have to do it again. And that pretty much brings us to now.

And Now, For the Good Stuff


I am leaving in less than a month for Israel. You heard me right, kids - Israel. So amidst tooth pain and general overall insanity, I have been trying to read some books about touring the region. The fact is that I might never get through them, but I tried. On June 1, I'm going to fly back up to the Northeast to visit some family before I actually leave the country on the 6th.

The plan so far is as follows: to travel from June 6-18 with my Israel Outdoors group from Birthright Israel. Then when my tourmates return to Tel Aviv to fly home, I make my way to the Kibbutz Program Center where I discuss with them possible options for where I can volunteer. Then for the remainder of the summer I plan on staying and volunteering at a Kibbutz. Of course if things don't go as planned for whatever reason, I always have the option of changing my flight and returning home early.

I plan on trying to write a few entries in this here blog from Israel, but it honestly just depends on which Kibbutz I get placed on and if they have internet access. And that's pretty much it. I'm totally stoked!
