Content: We started our visit of the city by renting bikes for a few hours. This was a good way to visit as we didn’t have much time in Tel Aviv. We started to bike on the coastline to get us in Jaffa. Jaffa (also known as Yafo) is the ancient port city out of which Tel Aviv has now grown. Jaffa flea market is a well-known attraction of the area, with vendors selling a diverse range of interesting and unique products. It is a nice place to take a walk and discover hidden corners. We really enjoyed it!

It is a nice thing to do to get into the vibes of this city.

We woke up in the night as the departure was at 4 o’clock in the morning, to go contemplating the sunrise up Masada. Masada is not only important because it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site or an ancient fortress occupying a breathtaking, strategic location high on a flat plateau above the Dead Sea, but because of its symbolic importance of determination and heroism which continues to this day with many Israeli soldiers sworn in here. This mountain is one of the greatest archaeological sites in Israel and, perhaps, across the world.
