‘Healing doesn’t mean arriving at a place where you feel happy all the time. Healing means arriving at a place where you no longer judge your emotions and therefore you no longer resist them. Self mothering anchors you with the inner resources confidence and compassion to turn toward your emotions and feel safe to express them‘ Shaelyn Cataldo
Today we listen to the wind of our soul. We express our anger, sadness and confusion ahead of Israel’s second lockdown. We feel the music of the south, of the gut, of the heart. We think and discuss Jewish Rosh Hashana and the high holidays ahead during this pandemic… May we all resume our routine as fast as possible… We love routine…. Routine is good….
Wishing you all a happy & healthy New Year 5781. Shalom

A few side notes:
yes life – and dining – in Israel is expensive
almost all restaurants stay open and are cool with menus at any hours (unlike Belgium)
another great Israeli invention is EatWith if you want a home dinner

Coming to Tel Aviv always feels like coming home to me, even though I am not Jewish. Originally arriving to the city very hesitantly – like many people, I’m sure – it took just a few hours to turn me into a fan for life. Was it the comfortable climate? Was it the warmth of its people? Was it its glorious food? Make it a combination of all of the above. Either way, since then, I have visited the white city many times. It became one of my getaway cities over time, a place where I can come to hide from the everyday hustle of a promoter’s life, a city that gives me energy and inspiration while at the same time relaxing me more than any other place.
Sharing the city
For my girlfriend and travel companion, it was her first visit to this mostly unknown, hidden treasure. It was fun to share some of my favorite spots and discovering some new ones, because Tel Aviv is a city that is constantly changing while maintaining its vibe.
Tel Aviv is only about an hour away from Jerusalem so a visit to the holy city was inevitable. Our guide Karen was very well informed about all matters from the past and from today. She took us to some unique viewpoints and even into places where you would never come as a regular tourist. Jerusalem has always been a complicated city and it will probably always remain that way. But all its diversity is what makes it what it is today.
When can we go again?
We’re on the plane home now and while at the beginning of the trip there seemed so many days ahead, now it feels like they went by too fast. We’re already looking forward to our next stay and yes, I promise to get in touch with my friends there before landing. Sorry guys.
Thank you Marilyn for the tips. Thank you Melissa for arranging the tour guide. Thank you Iris for breakfast and ever lasting friendship.
