Ideally no or low cost and good for a solo adventureDecember 25, 2016 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1205149WinnieThePoohParticipant
It’s hard to answer your question if we don’t know what you already did.
Wandering various neighborhoods in Yerushalayim is always nice- the Old City, Nachlaot, the shuk, Yemin Moshe, etc.
Or take a hike in one of the country’s many nature reserves.
If you want to warm up, hop on a bus and go south to the Dead Sea or Ein Gedi.December 25, 2016 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #1205150
Thank you thank you!!!!
Been to Jerusalem, Bnei Brak, Haifa, and Tel Aviv.
I’m central now.
Ein Gedi is such a cool idea. I don’t think I have ever been there.
Downside is the 3hr each way bus ride.
Maybe something closer in the middle?December 25, 2016 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #1205151Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
Did you go to Kever Rochel yet? There may be tour busses that go from Yerushalayim – I think I have seen signs at times, but it might be just during Chol HaMoed and the summer.December 25, 2016 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #1205153
Actually… I know that I am in Israel and am rarely here, but maybe I can give myself permission to just have a couple of simple days.
I feel like I should pack in more activities in the next two days.
However in real life it is exhausting to do do do. When I come back there is a lot to do.
Thank you. Putting this out there helped me see that I am putting pressure on myself to do more when I can use this time in another also meaningfull way.December 26, 2016 7:25 am at 7:25 am #1205155WinnieThePoohParticipant
By central you mean the Tel Aviv area? How about Holon, nothing especially spiritual there, but there are some interesting museums and parks, like the Egged bus museum, many of which are very kid oriented, but an adult can enjoy them too.
There is Hertziliya and the marina there, Caesaria and the ancient port and a lot of old archeology (Roman in origin, though), Rehovot, which has a museum dedicated to the war of independence and the Weizmann Institute, which has a visitor’s center, and science museum. The outdoor things might not be such a good idea in this weather though.
