Traveler: Dorothy Jewell ’06 Number of Trips With UCLA Alumni Travel: 3 First Trip: Gálapagos Islands (2007) Most Recent Trip: Croatia & the Dalmatian Coast (2019) Favorite Memory: “I’d go on the Israel trip with the Jordan extension again in a heartbeat. I loved the experiences of floating on the Dead Sea, having lunch with the Druze in their isolated village, walking the walled city of Jerusalem, witnessing the three religious denominations inhabiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and walking in the fresh air outside our hotel on the beach. All the hotels were so outstanding and well situated that our adventures were truly 24/7.”
