(While tensions have been high in Israel this past month, it has not deterred many travelers from still heading to this amazing country. They realize that life has not really changed much for the locals or tourists. However, it is understandable if you choose to wait for the conflict to settle down. So here is just a taste of what you can expect, so you can start your planning now!)
The last time I was in Israel prior to last month was fifteen years ago, and I have wonderful memories of perfectly fried falafel and creamy hummus. I was definitely excited to revisit the holy land, not only to reconnect with my Jewish roots, but also to reconnect with the land of milk and honey, now known for so much more in the way of culinary delights. Israel is the type of country that if visiting for the first time, you can squeeze as much as you can into a week, or go for at least ten days to give all the wonderful spots its proper amount of time without feeling rushed.
