Your trip to Israel will start in the library next door or with your laptop on the chest, opening some hundred tabs with wikipedia content. Prepare yourself for a country founded only 1948 but a history going back thousands of years.
I saw a country under constant fire, cities full of bomb shelters and soldiers, with the capital Jerusalem being still a war zone. This trip challenged me and changed me, and those four weeks left the deepest and most controversial impressions. It's worth going there but don't expect havong an easy time on beaches and clubs. Take your time, study people's faces, prepare yourself well and take and get the experience of your lifetime!

Day 12014/01/23

Aviv Beach (חוף אביב) Tel Aviv, Israel

Aviv Beach (חוף אביב)(テルアビブ, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

Tel Aviv is probably the most European city in Israel. It has a mediteranean vibe, great night life and some sophisticated street art :)

  • Loved to be there!

Azrieli Center Mall (קניון עזריאלי) Tel Aviv, Israel

Azrieli Center Mall (קניון עזריאלי)(テルアビブ, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

If you are into architecture, Tel Aviv has everything to offer from modern to traditional. Don't miss to visit the observation deck in the Azrieli Center Mall (it is in the round tower).

ダン エイラット ホテル(Dan Hotel Eilat (מלון דן אילת))(South District, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

The souterhnmost point of Israel is Eilat, sqeezed between Sinai peninsula and Jordan. Have a bath in the Red Sea and do some snorkeling.

The Dead Sea (ים המלח) South District, Israel

The Dead Sea (ים המלח)(South District, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

Hiking the desert - Ne'ot Hakikar is a traditional Kibbuz in the middle of nowhere. Go out in the wild, enjoy a landscape formed only by sand and water. Bus connections are rare.

Day 152014/02/06

En Bokek beach South District, Israel

En Bokek beach(South District, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

You all know the pictures of chubby hairy men, floating on the surface and reading a newspaper. According to the warning labels all over the place, due to strong winds you better not do this (reading, I mean). En Bokek is free of charge and clean, so it was my favourite beach at the Dead Sea.

Day 192014/02/10

Citadel Youth Hostel Israel

Citadel Youth Hostel(イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

War zone, birth place of Christian religion and home to the most important spot in Judaism. Honestly, this city has so much to offer, such a diversity of cultures, religions and races, that I really coulod not stand it. Especially in the old city you feel the tension with every step. Be warned, this place can become annoying really fast.

Day 202014/02/11

Hamlet Palestine

Hamlet(パレスチナ)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

Twice as high as the Berlin Wall - get a glimpse of what I told you on the last pic. This concrete bastion is dividing Israeli territory, the western part of Jerusalem, from Palestinian Territory, in the West bank.

Day 232014/02/14

העיר העתיקה של עכו (Old City of Acre / Akko) North District, Israel

アッコ(העיר העתיקה של עכו (Old City of Acre / Akko))(North District, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

Lovely port town of Acco or Acre, this small place is definitely worth a stay. The Knights left a mighty bastion with an even more mighty escape tunnel. Close bye you can find the burial shrine from the Bahai founder.

Day 262014/02/17

UNESCO Square Haifa District, Israel

ユネスコ広場(UNESCO Square)(ハイファ, イスラエル)|Israel 01/ 02 2014(Rene Kruegerさん)

Haifa is a port and industrial town, was built along the hillside and therefore is not very walking friendly. The Bahai Garden as shown here is a must see. Everyone there was just lovely and after already three weeks in Israel I really enjoyed talking to polite and friendly people. Sorry to say but this is just the truth!
