The Airplane Kit

New York City was a tundra disaster. Before we left, the streets were a mess. Walking to work took everything out of me. Everything was covered with ice, and manhole fires were rampant. Steam from beneath the pavement burned my eyes. No one knew where to walk and pedestrians were running into one another because neither were able to commit to a clear path. Because there wasn’t one. It was a modern day Gotham City, where the villain was ice rather than the Joker.
These are the reasons we left the frozen tundra for sunnier climates east. Welcome to Tel Aviv. (more…)

I’ve landed in the middle east and begun to relax. It’s nice to be out of the cold. Being chilled to my core had started to wear on me.
I’ve always been able to sleep for the duration of almost any flight. New York to Tokyo, yep… Take off to landing. New York to Paris, every time. And, New York to Tel Aviv was no different.

Wish You Were Here, Road Trip: HWY 1

pt. two

Next we made our way down to Big Sur stopping in Santa Cruz along the way. Santa Cruz is one of the sweetest little beach towns I have ever been to. The people were lovely, laid back and obviously understand the importance of enjoying all life has to offer.

After our impromptu stop, we made it to Big Sur. Over 1200 photos later, I understand completely why Henry Miller made this his home. Words cannot describe the magnificent energy Big Sur encompasses. This will not be my only trip to Big Sur. Amiram and I have already decided to go back and spend more time there, stopping by some of the wineries inland.

Wish You Were Here, Road Trip: HWY 1

pt. one

A couple weeks ago Amiram and I decided to start our 2015 discovering new things. We headed out to the West Coast to see all the things that, I’ve decided, not enough people talk about. As someone who has traveled all the way around the world, taking flights for 24 hours, to see the sun rise off the shore of Thailand, California has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
