Israel – What To Know Before You Go

If Israel’s not on your bucket list, put it at the top, now! Israel is a rare country that you can drive across in 6 hours, making it a great destination to stay settled in one place and day trip out from there! One of the hardest parts about traveling to far-away countries for me […]

Israel – Where To Stay?

The Margosa Hotel in Jaffa was the perfect boutique hotel and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Located a 10 minute walk from the Jaffa Port, the world’s oldest seaport and a 10 minute drive into the heart of Israel, Tel Aviv. Margosa is a boutique hotel that really takes care of their visitors. Stays […]

Israel – Where to Eat?

Almost all of the Port restaurants in Jaffa and Tel Aviv serve 20 different kinds of salads, dips such as hummus and tahini, falafel and fresh cooked pita bread before your meal even arrives. You also have the choice to skip the main and fill up on these delicious starters that they re-fill free of […]

Israel – Markets & Shopping

The Jaffa Flea Market is much like an old storage locker full of random knick-knacks that as a tourist, it’s doubtful you’ll ever need. It’s interesting to walk around and see how these people make a living and marvel at the fact they’re able to sell from packed rooms full of anything and everything. There’s […]

Israel – Jerusalem

The Wailing Wall was so significant to me that it needed its own post, but it’s really part of the Jerusalem tour. We had a friend of the family who used to be a tour guide, guide us so I can’t provide a recommendation for a tour guide. However, the city is so remarkable I’m […]

Israel – The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is not far from Kfar Hanokdim so it makes sense to continue your journey through Arad to the Dead Sea. If you’ve planned your trip like me you would have traveled from the Golan Heights which is home to the highest point in Israel, Mount Hermon at 2,224 meters above sea level […]

Israel – Bedouins & Camels at Kfar Hanokdim

There are quite a few Bedouin camps in Israel but ask anyone and they’ll agree, Kfar Hanokdim in Arad is the best! If you’re going to ride a camel anywhere in the world, let it be across the Israeli desert. The drive to Arad looks like a movie scene at every turn. There are wild […]

Israel – Golan Heights

Driving in an open air Jeep over more than 800,00 active landmines to the front lines of the Israeli defense line along the Syrian border. Stop in an Israeli bunker right near the border to see inside and understand about the civil/religious conflict going on in Syria. Look out to the near city of Quneitra […]

Welcome To My Travel Adventures

Anyone who knows me, knows that I spent half of my adult life to date moving from country to country, part to leave a life I felt was mundane, part to make myself uncomfortable and push my boundaries and most because I simply love to travel. At 23, I had a high power Director of […]
