Shopping and Noshing in Tel Aviv...
Israel is uniquely situated at a strategic point on the
migration route of millions of birds of several hundred
species and is also the wintering site for thousands of
birds, the birdwatching opportunities are endless, all year
round. The Israel Ornithological Center of the Society for
the Protection of Nature in Israel offers a variety of birdwatching
tours. The tours are day tours and half-day tours and usually
depart on Fridays from central Tel Aviv. Transport is either
by bus or in private cars.
the tours are guided in Hebrew, the guides and the participants
would be very happy to welcome visitors and translate the
information for them. We can also organize birdwatching
tours, tailor-made to your requirements, with English-speaking
guides. We send out an (almost) monthly email newsletter
with birding news from various centers in Israel.Journeywomen
who would like to receive this (free) newsletter and additional
information about birdwatching in Israel should contact

Small neighbourhood hotel in Tel Aviv...
I just spent two nights at the small (ish) family owned, 3-star Hotel Gilgal in Tel Aviv. It's located on a small, interesting street just five minutes from the Mediterranean Sea. The rooms are well appointed and spotless. Bathrooms are modern and efficient. Guests enjoy free WIFI and special beach towels are handed out at reception should you plan a day at the shore. Full and filling Israeli breakfasts are served in their rooftop restaurant and best of all there is a lovely, welcoming casual ambiance about this whole place. I loved their complimentary tea and coffee station situated in the ground floor lounge. Home baked cookies were always available. Bonus: It is a 10 minute walk to the Carmel Market and two minutes from a sweet cafe at the corner. Highly recommended. Tell them Journeywoman sent you:) Website: HotelGilgal.com

Journeywoman Tel Aviv Photo Gallery...
was so much to see as I walked the streets of Tel Aviv,
I never put my camera away. Instead I held it in my hand,
ready to capture the next colorful, interesting thing I
came across. My pal and guide, Sunny acted as my model in
many of the photos -- sometimes posed but more often candid.
