October 2011 - Milestones Israel

Rish Lakish Olive Press and Family Fun

October is the start of olive season in Israel and there’s no better way to celebrate this fruitful season than with a trip to an olive press. My personal favorite can be found in the beautiful village of Zippori in the lower Galilee region of northern Israel, and only a 15 minute drive from Nazareth. […]

Tour de Tel Aviv

This week, the city that never sleeps became the city that never stops riding. It was an amazing site. Hundreds of bikers of all ages filled the streets of the most hectic city in Israel. All major roads were blocked so we had to park in north Tel Aviv and walk nearly 40 minutes in […]

Magic on the Spice Route

I live in Tel Aviv with my boyfriend and our cat, Morris. With work and school, we are both incredibly busy and have days where we completely miss each other. Our apartment is near a major road and nights are filled with the sounds of buses, ambulances to the nearby hospital or neighbors playing their […]
