Destination: Costa Rica, January 2016
Just wanted to thank you for your hard work in making The Costa Rica Experience – January 2016 a positive experience for me. As I initially told you & Joseph, I was somewhat anxious about my 1st adventure abroad without my husband Avi z’l , & though I missed him a lot, we saw so many wonderful places & things & people were so pleasant that I did not feel ‘alone.’ I was impressed about how much we were able to do in just 8 days, & my experience was so positive that I am definitively going to look into going on another tour with Kesher/Gesher/Shai Bar Ilan. Please thank Alfonso & Chico for me when you see them– I learned so much from the Fonz, & Chico was an amazing driver. Thank you again, & l’hitraot.
Destination: China, January 2016
As a newly retired couple it was time to start bringing some traveling dreams to fruition. Although the thought of going on a kosher trip to China was not our first thought, a series of coincidences brought us first to Rona Michelson then to Shai Bar Ilan. Talk about bashert. Our tour leaders, the Michelson’s, quickly brought us up to speed about China, first through emails and suggested readings, then through commentary on the tours. They also provided all we could wish for re kashrut and an environment full of Yiddshkeit.
In each city we had professional, native members of the community whose knowledge, friendliness and engagement made our tour enlightening and fun. The presence of tour members from Australia and the United Kingdom added to our perspective. One of the couples had a grandparent who had lived in Shanghai. Our guide was able to locate where she had lived, bringing yet another personal touch to our tour. This trip was an outstanding introduction to China, to Shai Bar Ilan, and to the Michelsons. As a measure of our enjoyment, we will be joining the Michelsons on the next trip they are leading – to India, three months after returning from China. Ten months ago neither of these trips were on our radar, but a life of surprises is good.
We strongly recommend both Shai Bar ilan and the Michelsons to anyone wanting a trip they will joyfully remember for the rest of their lives.
