March was an epic month for me, it was one of those months that you just wish never ended. I honestly don't know how my next InstaMonth will live up to this one, but I promise I'll try! 

So why was March so good? Well, I traveled to Jerusalem, spent my 27th birthday upon the Haram as-Sharef (Temple Mount) between Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock. Then I crossed the apartheid wall and visited Bethlehem and Hebron in the West Bank. The highlight of the month was definitely spending time with Palestinians, it opened up my eyes to reality on the ground and the sheer injustice of the situation. This is something that will live with me forever.

Reality bites though, so it's back down to earth for April. Still, I have an exciting project coming up... All will be revealed ;)
