It’s true. I was casually walking on the waterfront with a friend, away from the main area, and heard some squeaky sounds. We were shocked to see condoms there. Not one or two, but hundreds of them, all over the place!
Acre or Akko as it is locally known, is a UNESCO world heritage city that played a significant role in shaping histories of several cultures: Israelites, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Arabs and the Bahá’í. The historic old city has a big Turkish market (souk) with many interesting stores including the ones selling made in China tourist knick-knacks

Tel Aviv is the party capital of Israel. I spent my last two days in the old city of Jaffa, at the southern end of central Tel Aviv. The beach on the Mediterranean sea is fantastic and a great place to unwind. Don’t worry about the occasional military planes, I stopped noticing them after a couple of days. Just take some pictures, checkout the random groups playing music and stroll on the waterfront
To checkout various places around the Sea of Galilee, I picked up a bike and went on a self-designed bike tour. By cycling around the lake Galilee, one can easily visit the numerous places of historical and religious significance that are scattered around this lake. This post is about a settlement called Capernaum.
