It’s been 2 years since visiting Cuba, what an amazing holiday that was! I’ve written a blog about this country of rum, salsa and cigars previously here: Tips for preparing a vacation to Cuba), with travel tips and recommendations for places to stay. However, I haven’t shared that many pictures of this trip, while Cuba is such a photogenic country! I’ve been loving photography for quite some time now, especially on my holidays. So I’d like to share my photo’s a bit more on my blog as well! With a recent holiday to Israel, I published my first photoblog: Photoblog: Tel Aviv Street Art and I thought – I might as well make it a recurrent blog theme and post more photoblogs! I always love seeing other people’s travel pictures, as it inspires me to exploring new destinations. Therefore, now I hope to inspire you to visit Cuba!
Israel really was one of the most fascinating countries I’ve been to recently. There’s so many diversity in this country in any kind of way. The contrasts between the modern city of Tel Aviv and the historic city of Jerusalem, the beautiful beaches vs the dry deserts and last but not least, the diversity between the religions and cultures. I have to say – it’s a lot to take in, but I’m also so happy I went. It’s a country you often see on the news due to the political conflicts, but also a country that I knew very little of. I did, however, hear a lot of positive stories about visiting Israel and all the beautiful attractions it has to offer. With my family, we were looking for a holiday where we could explore a totally new and different country, not too far away from home where we could spend a lovely week away during our Christmas Holidays.
When we started the booking process and picking our destinations in Israel, it soon became apparent that it wouldn’t be the most accessible country to get around in though. Due to the different conflicts and religious differences within the country, you’ll have to be aware of where to go and not go as well. I’ll be happy to share our experience and provide the Pros and Con’s of visiting this country.
