There is one thing I love about travelling and that is the authentic experience. Although Israel in itself is super fascinating and that I had a great experience doing touristy stuff, my top 5 is a bit different than the usual touristy thing. I love it when I get to hang out with locals and I want to share what I appreciate while having amazing trips like this one:
The numbering doesn’t really matter. These are all great things that I will appreciate and be grateful for, for the time to come.
I tasted a lot of different foods. I was lucky enough to come along for shabbat dinner as well. Thank you so much for that. Even if I thought I was going to die from overeating that night. Seriously..
I also got to attend a Jewish wedding, which was such a fun experience! It’s so very different to the weddings I’m “used” too and it was refreshing to see it from another cultural perspective.
I went to two concerts. One was mostly CHRCHK for me because it was in Hebru, but I really enjoyed it. Second one was a Jam Sunday at Jimmy Who?, which was a lot of fun! The music scene in Israel is great and there is really a lot of amazing musicians – so much so that an American basketball player is actually chasing his music career there as we speak. Weird huh? I would have never thought..
The people I met was super funny. It’s been a long time since I laughed as much with strangers. Their humor is amazing and I love the self irony. My kind of people. If you don’t find Israelis funny, there’s something seriously wrong with you.
And of course the country in itself is absolutly stuinng. Everywhere I went the view was amazing. There’s not a lot of places in the world that happens. I mean, usually there is some ugly you know.. But no. I’m actually a bit jealous.
Thank you so much for a wonderful time Israel. See you again sometime in the future. ❤
