Photo Diary: Northern Israel, Sfat, and Tiberias

13 Jun

As you read this, I’m en route to Los Angeles, finally! After a whirlwind month long adventure in Israel and France, I’m pretty excited to get back to where all the signs are english and to see my parents, of course. Here’s a little taste of some of my time in Israel, a weekend trip to the mystical city of Sfat (birthplace of Kabbalah) and also time enjoying the vibrant nightlife of Tiberias, on the Sea of Galilee.

Me and the boyfriend at the Gush Et'Tzion winery outside of Hebron

The boyfriend and I on a super fun disco boat ride in Tiberias, taking a break from dancing.

Street vendor selling wares in the winding alleys of Sfat (also Szfat or Safed)

A man about to make me a Yemenite street pancake. (I don't know the authentic name for this, sorry.)

Think a caprese salad inside of a fresh non-sweet pancake-ish wrap.

Deliciousness.

Alright well I’m out of time on my pay by the minute internet machine at Charles De Galle Airport, next time I write I’ll be in LA!

Bisous,

Rachel

Ziplines, Challah Baking, and more of Israel

10 Jun

The bad news is that I’m still eating my way through France, the good news is that my wallet is considerably lighter! Haha just kidding, I’m definitely enjoying the food aspect of my trip as well as all of the other fun things I’m seeing. I’m very excited to show you all pictures from Paris, but in the meantime here are some more cool photos from the two and a half weeks I just spent in Israel! Also, don’t forget that I’m moving to Los Angeles this upcoming Monday and looking for all the help I can get; please and thank you :)

All dressed up for Shabbos (the sabbath day) in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem

Me learning how to bake challah bread. So. Delicious.

Me and the boyfriend about to go ziplining on the second longest zipline in the world, in the Judaean Hills outside Hebron

Short and sweet today, coming up first thing on Monday will be pictures from a weekend trip to Sfat and Tiberias in Northern Israel. Happy weekend :)

Bisous,

Rachel
