Jason & I had an Israel trip planned for quite some time,
We went to visit some of his family, visit TelAviv, explore (mostly for me because he’d been before) and try to relax a little.
It was an amazing time and the 10 days whizzed by so quickly, In a nutshell I would explain Israel as Interesting, cultured and I would say Tel Aviv is vibrant. This is because everywhere in the city there is artwork splattered across the walls in colour and text. It actually reminded me a little of Shoreditch in that way.
There are hummus, shawarma and falafel food spots dotted around, smelling very inviting and the people are friendly and like to have a good chat.
I received quite a few stares there, a few people stopped me and asked where I was from and said that I look Brazillian (I was very flattered!) People also would stare at my tattooed arm, Women with tattoos there aren’t really as common as here in London but I didn’t mind too much.
I would defiantly go back to Tel Aviv. We also spent time in a town about an hour and a half away so this was a very different vibe to the city. Calm, collected, scorching hot but still intriguing.
We visited the old town of AKKO and if you ever go I recommend ‘Humus Said’ and also round the corner from it is a little stall with a man selling coffee beans – The coffee he makes there is delightful.
I really enjoyed Israel and I love making photo diaries so definitely wanted to record this place for my blog. I also filmed a (very) little bit while there which will be up in a few days.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
