Adventures in Israel

I recently took a trip to Israel, where I wandered the streets of Tel Aviv in search of deliciousness around every corner. From the small stalls in bustling downtown neighborhoods, to the large luxurious restaurants tucked next to the shorefront boardwalk, the flavors of Israel do not disappoint.

On the hunt for spices!

Not to mention, this place is uber rich in history as well as a mecca of active outdoor adventure enthusiasts. The Mediterranean coastline is appointed with beautiful beaches complete with outdoor ‘gyms’ (think: Venice Beach), pools, and an expansive boardwalk for runners, cyclists, and those just looking for a picturesque stroll. With the waters sprinkled with surfers, paddle boarders, kayakers and seaports of all kinds – this place is an outdoor sports paradise.

 

 

Of course I had to get a piece the adventure-ing on the sparkling Mediterranean Sea
