Spending Independence Day in the Middle East

18 Jul

Spending the 4th of July in the Middle East definitely left me feeling a bit homesick, especially since I had to go in to work for the entire day. To make things better, two of my friends and I decided to book a 3 day weekend in the resort town of Eilat, on the Red Sea, to celebrate America as best we could. We spent the days tanning by the Red Sea and wandering the gorgeous boardwalk, eating at Israeli staples Aroma, Kakao, Moses, and Mike’s Place. Here are a few snapshots from Independence weekend :)

Flying domestic within Israel on Israir was definitely an experience to say the least

Eilat is beautiful, but only about 5 minutes away from Jordan and a stone’s throw away from Egypt (pun intended.)

We were right up front for Alesso the first night and managed to catch Armin Van Buuren on night two!

P.S. Here was my throwback Thursday #tbt for 4th of July. I loved bows since the beginning :)
