Jerusalem

We recently had a four day weekend and thought we would head somewhere nearby. During the brainstorming process a friend invited us to Jerusalem with a group to run a 10k. With the prospect of sun, history, friends, humus and falafel how could we say no. Plus the run might help burn off a few of the calories we consumed.

Both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv were enjoyable but the amount of history that Jerusalem has sets it apart in my opinion. The mixing of religions and the importance of the sites creates for a different kind of experience and a feeling of constantly recalling all the biblical things you hear about in church and experiencing them first hand is a cool experience in itself. We definitely did not have enough time in the country and will plan a trip to go back to see more of the country.
