I decided to make one dream trip come true and went to Israel to see the country with my own eyes. I went there with atheist eyes and free political mind. I also bought several books about Israel because many of the authors somehow manage to sneak in their point of view with religion and politics, so having couple og versions with you, you get different perspectives.

I started the first day in Tel Aviv, the city is a great example that shows how different Israel really is and you meet people from all over the world. I started my walk from Rabin square towards Rothschild Boulevard: IMG_2973

And passed the house where Israels independency was declared 1948:


Then I turned towards Carmel Market where also the city changed rapidly:


Here I found a 2 euro Falafel in a hole in the wall before I started my walk toward the oldest jewish area in Israel, Neve Tzedek.


Neve Tzedek became my favorite area in Tel Aviv where modern houses blends with old houses and sky scrapers fills the sky. No one is moved away because the modern world is growing.


Then I walked to the famous Jaffa area, it is the so called Middle East of Tel Aviv and has became an artistic area. Here I also saw why many people, who has visited this country, says Israel is the only true democracy in the world. While the mosque let their prayer echo in the neighborhood, a man dressed in typical jewish clothes passed it and just by the corner tourists were having a beer.


From this area I jumped on the city tours bus that took three hours and completed the tour, passing the Sorona area with amazing restaurants and shops, to the unversity area with a great view over Tel Aviv:


Then I jumped off the bus by the luxury hotels by the beach and show no fear just going straight into one of the hotels, passed the guard like I been living there since days, found the elevators to get a great shot over the most famous beach areas in the world. Pushed the highest number in the elevator, got into a fancy lounch bar and thought what the heck, I order some champange a buffet so no one askes questions. The problem was when I wanted to pay, they said it was free for guests and I felt so ashamed and could not say I just got in for the view so I left as tip what I managed to figure out what champange and afternoon buffet costs in places like this. But I got nice shots and left a superhappy waiter behind:


Tel Aviv is one of the most fashinating cities I ever visited and never felt so safe in my life.

More Israel to come...

Just when blog energy came back after a separation, moving to a smaller city and start up of a new company...I will take some vacation and be back next week. These photos are taken from Taormina greek theatre just yesterday. I would also like to remind readers that this blog is not a pink wine drinking blog living the cotton italian dream, it is a pure reality view from my point of view, aimed for the foreign reader (not first hand to italians, that is why I will never translate to italian even after several requests) and you are always welcome here and also to create a dialogue. My stay here started as a personal experiment and will write good and bad things. If you have another point of view....start your own blog. See ya soon! 🙂


Precis när bloggenergni kom tillbaka efter en separation, flytt till en mindre stad och starta ett nytt företag ... så kommer jag att ta lite semester och vara tillbaka nästa vecka. Dessa bilder är tagna från Taormina grekiska teatern igår. Jag skulle också vilja påminna läsarna om att denna blogg inte är en rosa vindrickande blogg som lever bomulls-italienska drömmen, det är en ren verklighetsvy från min synvinkel, avsedd för den utländska läsaren (inte i första hand till italienare, det är därför jag aldrig kommer att översätta till italienska även efter flera förfrågningar) och du är alltid välkommen hit och även för att skapa dialog. Min vistelse här började som ett personlig experiment och kommer att skriva bra och dåliga saker. Om du har en annan synvinkel .... starta din egen blogg. Ses snart! 🙂

Savoca, one of the villages where Godfather was filmed. A very cosy village just 25 min north of Taormina. Here you find the famous bar, Bar Vitelli. Best time to visit is spring or autumn to avoid tourist crowds.

Sicily has so many breathtaking places that offers amazing views over the island and a clear day you can see as far as the eye reaches. But these places are difficult to find and you need to know where they are to visit them, well hidden places. Here is an amazing view from Mongialino.
