Israel Through Instagram

I’ve been posting lots about my recent trip to Israel, but I updated a lot via Instagram while I was there too.

Here are some real time uploads that tell a story about my experiences as they happened.

I have just arrived in Tel Aviv and this is the view from my room at the David Intercontinental Hotel.

Walked along the Port of Tel Aviv and stopped to watch the fishermen on the pier. They didn’t catch anything, but I got splashed by the Sea.

Jaffa in the distance.

We rode bikes around Tel Aviv for 2.5 hours, driving along the boardwalk, through tiny graffitied alleyways and side streets, along Rothschild Boulevard and up the Yarkon River in Park HaYarqon. It was probably the best way to see Tel Aviv.

The men playing cards asked me to join them for a photo.

Shakshuka is a popular (and yummy) spicy tomato and egg breakfast dish and this is THE place to get it.

For all your olive oil needs..


A little pre-Shabbat nap in the Lavi Kibbutz.

Professional tree planter right here.

The Sea of Galilee.

The Vered HaGalil Guest Farm definitely makes my top 5 list of best places I’ve ever stayed. Not only do I have an amazing little private cottage overlooking the Sea of Galilee, but I can’t seem to get out of this hammock. I guess I’ll have to though, because I’m about to go ride a horse.

I just went on my first horse ride. Not sure why I hadn’t done it before, but the rocky hillsides overlooking the Sea of Galilee at sunset was a good place to start.

View of Jordan and the Dead Sea from the top of Masada.

Oasis in the desert.

The view from my balcony right now (that’s the Dead Sea in front and Jordan behind it).

For some reason I never expected to see a cable car in the desert. But, I’m certainly glad I didn’t have to climb that mountain..

There are so many photo worthy hidden doorways in Jerusalem.
