Israel


The conference in the oasis Ein Gedi(next to the Dead Sea) was really nice and felt more like vacations than work to be honest πŸ™‚
Christine arrived after the conference ended and we travelled quite a bit:
Tel Aviv: Couchsurfed at Matan and sightseeing
Haifa: Don’t try to use public transportation on Shabbat – we rented a car 0o
Rosh HaNikra: Some really nice grottoes close to the border of Lebanon.
Haifa: Surfed on the couch of a guy from the conference. He lives on the campus of the Technion an awesome university with three Nobel price winners.
Mitzpe Ramon: A really nice crater – we slept in a bedouin mud hut. Amazing landscape.
Eilat: Snorkeling in the coral reef in the Red Sea. Unfortunately no photos for that πŸ˜‰
Masada: Fortifaction which hold agains the Romas for three years. A really nice sunrise hike though we had to get up at 4:30 am.
Jersualem: A bit too religious and touristic for my taste, but the Old City is an interesting maze πŸ™‚ We were there at Hanukkah(you could call it jewish Christmas) and there was a really nice vibe everywhere. They eat donuts which almost equal berliner but with a weird artificial filling inside.
Tel Aviv: Couchsurfed at Erez and Chens place and tried some more local food.

All in all the people in Israel are unbelievable friendly and kind. Way nicer than Germans but kind of aggressiv and crazy on the roads…
