The Open Road

Visiting Vancouver, British Columbia

Vancouver I cannot wait - this August I will be traveling to Vancouver (via Toronto) to visit family and friends. As you already know, I currently live in Israel but I have to say, Vancouver holds a very special place in my heart. It's where I grew up and therefore many of my childhood memories took place in this beautiful city. My plan is to rent a cheap car rental and take my kids to as many attractions as possible.

Traveling and Visiting with Great Friends

Good Friend BeachThere is nothing better than good friends - dear friends who travel across the globe to come visit. I have been blessed with such friends and dedicate this blog to them. As I've mentioned in past posts I now live in Israel, having left Canada nearly 2 years ago. It's been a huge adjustment and making new friends has been tricky. Maybe I'm picky? Probably, but good friends are hard to find so you must cherish the ones that you have.

How to Drive in Rain Storms

I live in a part of the world where the weather is generally hot, dry and much of the time, dusty.  Summers can reach 40 degrees celcius or more.  Driving is no problem as the streets are dry - and is often quite relaxing because you can sit in your air conditioned rental car to escape the heat.  That said, even though the winter is short here, it definitely comes with a vengeance.

A Nice Tour of Jaffa, Israel

Today was an awesome day and I feel very inspired to share it with you.

Tel Aviv is an amazing city but perhaps my favourite part of going there is to travel slightly south and visit Old Jaffa.  For those of you who have never been there, imagine stone buildings, a large port with fishermen hard at work, outdoor cafes and restaurants all abuzz with patrons and a million dollar view of the Mediterranean.  Sound nice?  It is.

An Adventure in Thailand

So it's finally happening!  I am taking the plunge and heading to Thailand in January and can't wait.  I've never been before which makes it all the more exciting.  The plan is to spend 3 or so nights in Bangkok and then to hit the Island of Krabi for a week.  Sound luxurious?  I sure as heck hope so!
