Rosh Hashana is Nearly Here! Time to Bring out the Apples and Honey!

Shana Tova

Two more days to go and it will be Rosh Hashana - the Jewish New Year. This is a very special time when families get together for festive meals, go to synagogue and in general just hang out together. This year I will be spending Rosh Hashana with a dear friend and her family just outside of Tel Aviv. We'll probably rent a cheap car because taking a taxi during this time is next to impossible.

Fun Times in Toronto and Vancouver

Fun Times in Toronto and Vancouver

Summer has been great. I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Toronto and Vancouver from Israel this past month. I packed up my 3 daughters and we boarded the plane for Pearson nearly 3 weeks ago. The flight was full, we weren’t sitting together and the food sucked. Needless to say, we made it in one piece which is the most important thing of all.

Smathers Beach Key West Florida

School's out and summer is here! After months of gray, wet and snowy weather it is such a relief to have the sun and warmth. And what better way to enjoy this weather than by hitting the beach! So find a cheap car rental, pack up your sunscreen, beach umbrellas and bathing suits and head for the water.

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.
