On the verge of 45 years as the premier tour operator for lesbian travel, more than 200,000 women have been part of the Olivia experience.

This year they've partnered with A Wider Bridge, a nonprofit that builds LGBT connections with Israel, to plan the ultimate getaway to the land of milk and honey. The 10-day trip includes visits to Jerusalem, Masada and the Dead Sea and introductions to leaders of Galilee's LGBT community. November 9-18, 2017

Moisture and SPF 30? Kiehl's knocks it out of the park with their latest hydrating facial cream - perfect for those hot days in the Israeli sun. The new, light-textured formula features Antarcticine, a glacial glycoprotein that helps hold onto moisture while still offering that valuable broad-spectrum protection.

Canon PowerShot SX720
Canon's lightweight workhorse offers 40x optical zoom to get close-ups of all those historical sites and will also compile images and video into a highlight reel, with music and effects to make all of your social media followers envious. Intelligent IS optimizes image stabilization, while built-in Wi-Fi makes sharing and saving your images easy.

BackBeat FIT Headphones
These wireless, flexible and durable headphones are perfect for the long-haul flight to Israel and sync with your smartphone or tablet for eight hours of battery life. The secure fit includes open eartip design, sweatproof nanocoating and five color options to sport your personal style wherever you are.

Hand Soap Sheets
Grab a packet of hand soap sheets for when you're wandering among all those ancient ruins. Made from biodegradable material and airline carry-on compliant, they'll come in handy for those unpredictable restroom stops.
