My Story 

the honest truth (almost)

Nick Cree is the creator of the popular blog site “It shouldn’t happen to a volunteer” (ISHTAV) which has been running since June 9th 2017 which, incidentally, was the 30th Anniversary of Nick’s arrival on a Kibbutz in Israel.

He denies he was running away but his life until that point had been pretty meaningless, with an endless round of dead end jobs. In Israel at the time the most popular song was from U2’s album the Joshua Tree. “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” might have still been the case when Nick finished his stint on Kibbutz but by that time at least he had figured out what questions to ask.

if you really want to – I won’t take offence if you don’t
