I didn’t expect it at all, but Tel Aviv grabbed me hard, pulled me in with its irresistible aura, and didn’t let me go. I left my heart in Tel Aviv.
In the second part of my Israel National Trail trek I hike through northern Israel and the Sea Of Galilee. I am also sharing my tips for doing the trek independently.
Last week I started my trek along the National Israel Trail with a couple of days of hiking through the Negev Desert. The combination of the desert heat and the barren landscape was challenging, yet extremely rewarding!
I got a quick introduction to Jerusalem last week – and am already looking forward to returning next week! The sacred city has an aura like no other place in the world.
The Israel National Trail is a 1000 km / 620 mile long hiking path that crosses Israel from north to south. Join me on my hike through the Negev Desert segment of it!
My days on the shores of the Red Sea were as relaxing as I had hoped: I spent time on the beach, ate good food and experienced some of the best snorkeling in my life in Eilat!
It is rare that I get to a hostel and don’t want to leave, but the Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem was just like that – I felt right at home and am already looking forward to return.
I’ll be returning to Tel Aviv to find out if it is possible to fully enjoy everything the city’s got to offer on a small budget – if you have any tips for me, let me know!
My road trip to the Dead Sea included mud, salt and tears – but it was one of the best days I had in Israel! Read more about the lowest and one of the saltiest places on earth.
