Waterfalls in North Israel

After few days of heavy rain that filled the springs,lakes and waterfalls with strong moving waters finally the sun came out and made it perfect for a day for a trip to see the unusall sights of full swing falls.

The sky was blue and it was around 17-18 Celsious around 65 F, snow can be seen on top of mount Hermon with Southern sloops in Israel and Northen in Lebanon, so be carefull and take the right directions when sking down hill...


We started at 8:30AM and were home at 7PM  managing to see 4 waterfalls ,have picnic breakfast and a late lunch in an Indian vegeterian resturant in Kiriat Shmona....that can be done only in a small but a beautiful country like ours.


Morning Picnic.


The Northen part of the country is hilly,green and beautiful to see during the Spring when the bloom is at full, the Southern part is mostly desert but has its beauty too, it includes the Dead Sea ,Massada and Ein Gev Oassis.


It is hard to believe that in late January when Europe and North America are dip in snow to find this area in such a great weather, and as we all know we live by the weather it dictates what activities we will participate in, so today we enjoyed a sunny day till the last beam on sun in a green ,beautiful nature.


A stand on the way to one of the falls offering olive oil,olives and pickles .

The fresh air made us hungry so we headed to an Indian vegeterian resturant just before taking a 2 hour drive back home.


Best of all my friends ,keep warm.

Celebrating Anniversary in Cyprus

We RV every summer for 4-5 months since 2002 ,each summer to different states enjoying hiking,scenic drives,meeting with people , some of them we meet once ,some few times and some stay in touch and become friends.

We call ourselves “SUMMER FULL TIMERS” what leave us all winter free.

The trailer is stored at the end of the trip in North America and we are back home in Israel where the winter is mild and staying at home is not an option, so every winter we travel to explore new places and I must say we are doing not to bad, in the last 5 winter we visited :Vietnam,Philipines,Thailand,Georgia (Asia),Vienna,Cyprus and others,

This December we celebrated our 55 year Anniversary and decided to do it in Phapos Cyprus (last year we celebrated in Vienna).

A 50 minutes direct flight from Tel-Aviv and we were in a different world.

Low coast flights, Villa with a view , a Car all shared with another couple for 5 days was very reasonable price to0 pay.


We consecrated on the West of Cyprus visiting wineries, waterfalls, old beautiful villages,eating great food and mainly celebrating everyday all day..


The weather was fine for four days and started to rain only on the fifth day when we were ready to fly back,it seems that the sky was crying as we were leaving..

Xmass decorations were everywhere and it was especially beautiful when it was dark when all the lights were on.


The most difficult part was driving on the left side of the road , on the wrong side..wow that was tough, first look to the right when crossing, or take the roundabout from the left side of it, but we made it with no special events except some screams in the car....

We still will be doing some winter/spring short trips befor heading to Oklahoma to pick our rig and discover part of Texas and Lousianna in summer 2019.

Happy New Year.
