This narrative is a compilation of personal journeys written to illustrate the individual experiences at the Israeli desert community of Neot Semadar and the transformative adventure of participating in a new way of life as it relates to the overall experience of international travel and project work. Each section follows the life of one of the students, their journeys, and personal conclusions about their experience as it relates to international projects abroad, interacting with new cultures, and life at the project site. The narrative concludes with an overall analysis of the project, as well as an appended deliverable to the sponsor on how to assemble temperature and current sensors in homes-- one of the main projects the IQP group spent working on while in Israel.
