Finding Serendipity in Jaffa

Tweet Part of the reason I’d booked so many days in Tel Aviv was so that I could have a beach day in Jaffa, a seaside suburb that shares municipal services, but is its own city. But the weather had other plans, with wild winds whipping my scarf around my neck and blowing debris in […]

Tweet Jerusalem is one of those places that I dreamed about visiting long before I had a concept of its history, ever since I saw the mother-of-pearl inlaid Bible my grandparents brought back from their trip to the Holy Land.

My Next Destination: Israel

TweetIt’s a destination that has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Ever since I saw photos from my grandparents trip there when I was a child. I carefully clutched the mother of pearl Bible they gave my mother to carry down the aisle, a gift from the Holy Land. Knowing […]
