Last week I returned from a trip to the sea of Galilee in Israel. I ventured over firstly to see family, but as I never visited this part of Israel before, I couldn’t imagine the beauty that was awaiting me. It was stunning. I shouldn’t be surprised coming from a country with so many outstanding places to visit such a Jerusalem and Tel aviv but this was different. It was a slower pace here. It was a little more cafe culture and you really felt like you could blend into Israeli life and wave your bum bag good bye!
But I mostly loved the fascinating architecture. Incredibly old temple’s located next to a busy shopping area, the contrast in old and new was everywhere. With the mountains of Tiberias to one side, and the Sea of Galilee to the other. It made for interesting scenery.
With my 4 year old daughter in tow pestering me for every shekel on earth to ride the bouncy castle located on the promenade, I enjoyed the view whilst sipping on what can only be described as some kind of dodgy substitute for slush puppy. And slightly luke warm. Mmmmm tasty.
But It didn’t detract from the most amazing sunsets over a magical and spiritual place. I’m sure I’ll be back!
