Tel Aviv

March 5th, 2019

I’ve slowly been finding time to get through photos from our trip to Israel, last fall was a bit crazy, this winter hasn’t slowed down much. We traveled in early November, a perfect time to get away from the chilly weather in Maine, to the warm weather of Tel Aviv. While we did some work while there, we also had time to walk and explore. The evenings, in particular, were lovely, most of them we spent walking up along the beach, enjoying the sunset. Here are the photos from one such evening walk. We went from our hotel on the beach up to Old Jaffa. In Old Jaffa, we enjoyed a traditional middle eastern dinner, complete with all the fixing. Then we walked back to our hotel once again, late in the evening, enjoying the warm breeze and the warm lights of the city. Here are a few photos from that evening (notice the cat, they’re prominent in the city).

Tel Aviv is a lovely city, perfect for walking and soaking it all in. Many of our friends were nervous that we were going, but, having grown up in a country with lots of violence, I wasn’t too concerned. The city felt very safe, in fact much more so than some American cities I’ve visited. It’s like any other place, you just have to be careful where you go and when. Israel has never been on my must visit list, but it was well worth the long flight. No doubt we will be returning for work, maybe even this coming fall.

Do you have any trips planned for the future? Any places you’d love to go?

    I have read that Israel is one of the safest countries on the planet.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
