  • JerusalemUpon arriving in Jerusalem, I went straight to the hostel. Jaffa Gate Hostel has a great location for those visiting the Old City. It is right inside the Jaffa Gate at what I'd consider the beginning of the "tourist zone." Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 29, 2014
  • Bar'am forestAbout a month ago, I visited Bar'am with my aunt and uncle when they were in town. We followed the map to get to the general area, and then followed the signs to what we thought was a hike that Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jul 31, 2014
  • Yoga. MMMMMMM.Yay!!! My bff's sister came to Israel this weekend! Unfortunately though, it was raining. For many Israelis, that means not even leaving the house as if they're made of sugar and will melt. For us, that just meant more indoor Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jan 9, 2015
  • Rosh HaniqraA short while ago, I went to Rosh Ha Nikra. This is a spot right on the Israeli-Lebanese border. They've got a little funicular there to take you down to the caves, and then once you're at the caves, that's Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Aug 21, 2014
  • SNOW!!! in JerusalemSnow. In Israel, this is a relatively rare occurrence outside of the high mountains like the Golan. But, every few years, Jerusalem gets some as well. I was planning on coming to Jerusalem anyway, but the threat/promise of snow made me Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Feb 19, 2015
  • Lag B'Omer pilgrimage to Mt. MeronLag B'Omer is a Jewish holiday that falls in the spring, 33 days after Passover. (Lag means 33.) It is the only day between Passover and Shavuot where joy is allowed. Of course, why joy includes weddings and shaving your Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 10, 2014
  • Manara Funicular Today, I took a drive up to Metulla, a point that is right on the Lebanese border. In fact, there is a nice lookout point where you can see into Lebanon with your bare eyes. I was enjoying the Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 24, 2014
  • Be'er Sheva Science ParkWe went to the Beer Sheva science museum. The museum has two parts: inside and outside. Because it was hot, we started with the inside part in hopes that the outside would be nicer more towards evening. There are several Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | May 23, 2014
  • Intro and catch upAs I was looking for information on the internet and couldn't find it, it occurred to me that other people may be interested in knowing about the "weekend warrior" trips I take locally. Most are hikes, but I do other Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Apr 30, 2014

  • Nahariya and AkkoI got up and had breakfast at Bordo's Cafe because it was close to the hotel. Later in the day, somebody recommended it to me. I agree with the recommendation. They gave me more food than I Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jan 2, 2013
  • WanderingsYesterday, I awoke in Akko and did some final touring of the city that included delicious breakfast pizza from some bakery at the north end. My original plan had me in Nahariya all day the day before and Akko Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jan 4, 2013
  • Gorgeous, friendly TiberiasIn the morning, I got up, had breakfast, and went off to the local mall to square away my phone situation. Unfortunately, the Orange desk at the mall couldn't help me un-deactivate my sim and referred me to some Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Dec 31, 2012
  • Friendly KarmielThe drive from Tiberias to Tivon was very pretty. I don't know if it's because I miss the open highway as there none on St. Kitts, but the drive made me feel so alive! Tivon is a very cute little Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Jan 1, 2013
  • Happy SylvesterMy usual flights to Miami and DC went as normal, except that Sushi Maki in MIA changed their pad thai recipe for the worse (and gave a smaller portion than normal). My flight to Paris and then through to Posted by spsadventures in Adventures by spsadventures | Dec 30, 2012
  • Can I come in?From Dahab in Egypt I took the only land border between Egypt and Israel; the one leading to Eilat. The bus ride, together with 2 Germans, to the border was pretty un-eventfull, and when I saw that the border was Posted by reinder.prins in Athens to Australia, the scenic route | Apr 1, 2011
  • Clash of culturesSince we wanted to see some parts of Israel that are difficult to reach by public transport, we had decided to rent a car instead; this also allowed us to see more in 2 weeks instead of having to adjust Posted by reinder.prins in Athens to Australia, the scenic route | Apr 6, 2011

  • Old Jerusalem Another 4 am start. Maybe not such a bad thing as I head home tomorrow and the reconversion to AEDST might not be so challenging. Yeah! Go on, kid yourself! After breakfast we piled into yet another mini Posted by Oldsapper in Family Travels | Nov 4, 2017
  • Final Day in IsraelToday is our last day in Israel. We fly out tonight at 10.50 pm. Sadly we’ve not been able to get a late checkout and so the day has been occupied with events to distract us from the Posted by Oldsapper in Family Travels | Nov 4, 2017
