Our life is a Tiyul (trip)

As some of our readership might know, we (d&m) have recently made our union official. We tied the knot in the Holy Land, and it was wonderful being there as tourists. All the small tiyulim (trips/hikes) that we used to take for granted when we lived in Israel, were made that much more special, as we were surrounded by friends and family and kept the celebration going for a solid two weeks. Here are a few glances at some of the tiyulim we loved:

Jerusalem- a walk from the downtown (still under construction) through Mamila to the old city, and a visit to Shuk Machne Yehuda.

Old City, Jerusalem

Upper Galilee- a stop in Kahal for a view of the Kineret (Sea of Galilee) and hiking in Ein A-Tina and the Syrian Tank section of the Banias (Snir River). And Druze dinner in Masade.

Lower Galilee- Breakfast in Kfar Vradim and a visit to Acco (Acre), including the Bahai Gardens, the Templar tunnels, and walk through the old city port.

Tel-Aviv- need we say more? the sun, the beach, the coffee- truly a vacation spot.

It all went by so fast and we can't wait for our next tiyulon in Israel!
