Beginning of summer, we visited some friends who moved to Germany and spent a couple of days in their small Northern town. We didn’t expect much of the trip when we planned it, except for spending some time together with them and catching up. But we got a bit more, very much worth to be mentioned here – a lovely small town, good weather and lots of green areas to be explored, to relax and enjoy the quiet and easy pace around.
Just 60 kilometers and one hour and a half away by train, Alberobello is a must when visiting Bari and the Puglia region in Italy. One day trip is more than enough to wonder on the hills and around this “gnome” looking village.
Traveling to Palestine was a new experience for us from many perspectives. It was a trip of amazement, of appreciation, of encouragement, of mixed feelings, of compassion, of quilt sometimes, of feeling overwhelmed, of everything a trip and a new place should make us feel so that in the end once you left there you felt you had earned something for your growth and your soul.
I will have to admit from the beginning that we spend too little time in Tel Aviv and that the city deserves much more than the day we spent there. Tel Aviv has indeed a lot to offer – the beaches at the Mediterranean Sea, Jaffa, all the modern restaurants and the vibrant night life.
As a Romanian, my general perception about the country and its looks is not that good (excepting, of course, outdoors which I find just amazing). But for towns and cities, besides a few like Bucharest, Sibiu and Cluj Napoca, I’ve always had this idea that they’re not in a really good shape. This was also the case for Oradea, but I guess that our stay in the city completely changed my perspective.
