I mentioned in my last post that I am not the biggest history person, but you can't help but be interested in the history of this place! I'm pretty sure it's the area with the most densely packed history in the world (don't quote me on that, but I can't be far off..). Imagine walking on the same paths as Jesus, or the romans, or Moses or Abraham and probably a million other important people that I can't think of right now. It is so cool!
We did more historical things the last time we went (you can read about that here), and this time we mostly enjoyed ourselves and relaxed, but definitely with a hint of exploring, history and adventure as well!
As you could probably tell, the market was definitely one of my favorite things about the trip, and if I had to choose I think going to Yafo (or Jaffa) was my other favorite. Yafo is the old town of Tel Aviv, and I really loved it there. It's older (obviously) and so pretty with narrow streets and light brick buildings! They also have an entire area where all the streets were named after the different zodiac signs, which I thought was so neat. It is definitely a place I want to go back to.
Another thing I loved was experiencing passover there again, and of course catching up with everyone from last time.
We definitely had the most amazing time! It is one of my favorite places, and I can't wait to go back!
