  • Israel MuseumI woke up this morning well rested, relaxed, and ready to relax further. One reason I switched hotels to something nicer than what I usually stay in is because I just wanted to enjoy a bit of AC and luxury. Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jul 17, 2015
  • Kiryat Shmona ParkToday, I met a friend in Kiryat Shmona. We met in the city, and walked through one of the parks. The park was so wooded and secluded that I had thought we left the city, but we hadn't. It was Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jul 23, 2015
