       Day one hiking in the land of the fairies, with our new-found-friend and sweet guide dog, on Sam's 33rd bday :)

       We stayed in a gorgeous, ancient, hotel and our host not only made his own olives and jam (which were served for breakfast every morning), he also made wine. We got a bottle to celebrate Sam's bday -- and it was one of the best bottles of wine we've ever had! A perfect way to toast to Sam.

       Soon we return to San Francisco to begin our wedding photography season, and we couldn't feel more rested and inspired from our photo trip to the Middle East.

Ariel + Sam
