There 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.
The Open Road
This posting is long overdue. I got back from Thailand almost a month ago and am just now writing this. Sorry - things are hectic! Oh but what an adventure it was.
The 25th of December has come and gone and as we are in the first few days of the new year, what better thing to do than shop!?! While Boxing Day may have passed, perhaps one of THE most popular shopping days of the year, there are still deals out there to be had. For those of you who are curious,
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.
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.
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!
You never want to embark on a road trip without all necessary safety precautions in place, but you also don’t want to double your rental car bill for the sake of unnecessary add-ons.
