I don’t even know where to start with Tel Aviv so I’m just going to start with IT IS AWESOME!
Now, you might think why would someone go on holiday to Israel…its not usually on people’s travel lists. Well I probably thought the same until I worked with some Israeli’s and can honestly say they are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and you know me, I don’t need an excuse to travel, but when myself and a couple of the girls were invited over to visit these colleagues, we certainly weren’t going to turn down that offer!
We flew with easyJet from Luton, it was a pretty hefty flight for a budget airline, 5hrs, but we knew it’d be worth it as our friends were eagerly waiting for us on the other side…so we boarded, popped open the champagne and wished the flight away super quickly!
None of us knew quite what to expect when touching down at Ben Gurion Airport, but we were about to be amazed – what more could you want from a city break than glorious sunshine, fantastic company, tasty food and an enticing beach? But first we have to get through passport control…I’m not going to sugarcoat it, it was pretty darn scary and the guards are intimidating but can you blame them? A few questions later and we were through 😊
We arrived on Jewish New Year so our friend had us over to her apartment that evening to celebrate with traditional food…all super tasty of course! Afterwards it was back to our apartment to rest our sleepy heads.
We obviously hit the beach, the sun was shining and the sea warm…perfection! That night Avichii was playing at Tel Aviv Convention Centre and it was totally awesome…I mean who wouldn’t want to party al fresco all night long listening to all the great Avichii party tracks?
Guess what? Beach again! Followed by a lovely dinner and then a night out with old colleagues who had all come together to see us English blondes, so lovely!
Another beach day, of course! Followed by our final night out having dinner and partying the night away in central Tel Aviv.
MONDAY – HOME TIME 🙁
There we have it; I highly recommend a visit to TLV, so go on, pop it on your travel list!
