A Trip, An Adventure…

Tel Aviv, Pride Week 2019.

… but I wouldn’t call it a vacation. Would I do it again? Absolutely.

We began our trip in Herzliya, a neighborhood just outside of central Tel Aviv. We chose to stay in AirBnB’s so that we’d have access to washing machines, clothes dryers, and kitchens since our kids aren’t the most adventurous eaters. Mrs. E. was in charge of the research and did she deliver!

The view from our balcony in Herzliya.

I love a view of the water and watching the boats sail the Med, just on the other side of the wall, was wonderful. Parking was plentiful, which was helpful since we accidentally rented a commercial van, a Citroën Berlingo.

Mrs. E., behind the wheel… and on the sidewalk.

The advantage of a commercial vehicle is that we could park on the sidewalk to unload and nobody thought anything of it. We were obviously there to repair something.

Spices, fruits, vegetables, t-shirts, stuffed animals, even a Venezuelan areperia. Carmel Market is the place to take it all in.

Our adventure began when we returned to a parking garage to discover that the vehicle had “developed” two flat tires on the driver’s side. Ah, kids these days. Must have been Spring Break…

After a bit of a wait in the garage which had a spectacular view of the Med (the kids and my mom were driven back to the apartment by our friend, Val, who we met for lunch at the Ha’Carmel Market), Hertz delivered a new… Berlingo.

Crazy Americans…
