ONE OF THE SPLENDORS OF ISRAELOne of the most wonderful trips I had the pleasure of experiencing for Swimsuit was the voyage to Israel…and one of the most beautiful sites in this country is the incredible Bahá’í Gardens of Haifa. The precisely manicured gardens consist of 19 Terraces that extend all the way to the northern slope of Mount Carmel. It was truly a wonder to stand at the top of these absolutely perfect gardens.The top of the stairs of these amazing gardens is where you can see the entire vista. It was truly inspiring and I couldn’t wait to get back to the states to start planting!
