Hostel Crush: Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv thumbnail

If you read my love letter to my favorite city in Israel, you already know two facts about Tel Aviv: I’m obsessed with it, and it ain’t cheap.

To Tel Aviv: A Love Letter thumbnail

I feel like there are different levels of fall-head-over-heels with a destination. There’s the intro level — “wow, I adore this place; I’m going to have such a nice trip here!” Then there’s a slightly more amped up, “this place is incredible, I can’t wait to come back here and bring all my friends!” Then there’s…

As soon as I knew I was going to Israel, I knew I was going diving. Why? Because where there is water, that’s what I do. What I didn’t realize, at the time, is how many unique and salty dive experiences Israel had to offer. All that in time. I’d start where most divers in Israel…
