Days 3 & 4 in Israel


Oops! I am behind in posting! Day 3’s video came out awful and then yesterday I was out most of the day and was so tired I decided to wait before posting to avoid it being in gibberish. On the plus side, I did 2 videos yesterday so bonus!

Day 3

Wednesday (day 3) was a crazy day where plans kept changing. Yoni’s school is apparently in the habit of letting out early so Dan & I had to forego some of our plans to go and collect him. The journey was good though as I got to see orchards and a few kibbutzs’ plus the place where Dan & Esti get LPG for their van. I also saw horses! Here are a few pictures from that day…

LPG Petrol StationThe LPG Petrol Station!

There are ‘normal’ ones too but not with LPG.

KibbutzThis is part of one Kibbutz – it was across the dirt road from the petrol station.

Horses 1Dan took this pic – I’ll go back and get ones closer up. The Palamino on the right was so gorgeous! The mane and tail were shiny and beautiful and made me wish I could see my Hoovy riding it.

Horses 2This is not so good a picture but it is a dark brown horse and her foal. These horses were just around the corner from the LPG station so easy to go back and take more pictures!

Day 4

I spent this day at the Institute where Dan studies. It was an interesting day. First we walked for ages to get to the bus stop. The bus was a small van type but at least had air conditioning. A crazy drive for some distance and we finally got off and walked a fair way up the long drive leading to the institute. We were a bit early so had lunch. Dan went off to class but I opted to stay out and explore the campus. There are masses of Aloe plants growing in the plant beds – they are huge and I would just love to have one at home. There are also gigantic Eucalyptus trees and several flowers that I haven’t seen since living in America. Here are a few pictures of the plants and campus…

AuditoriumThe “Auditorium”

While sitting out across from the auditorium, I was watching a cat (there are lots of cats) and without me seeing in advance, a small kitten hopped up onto my lap! He was just a wee one and soooo cute! So I grabbed my camera and recorded him … PLEASE EXCUSE THE RIDICULOUS AUDIO – I FORGOT THE CAMERA RECORDS SOUND AS WELL AS IMAGES!

Roxy, Paisley & Muki


So far I have managed to take a few pictures of the 2 dogs and one of the cats here.

Roxy has taken to sleeping on my bed at nights but so far has always ‘thanked’ me for not chucking her out by giving me a wee doggy bat.

Paisley usually just brings me her bowl as I am trying to get to sleep – her way of trying to get some food out of me. She isn’t as cheeky as Roxy so won’t hop up onto the bed.

Muki is a sweetie – she does let me pet her sometimes but she just goes about her own business most of the time.




So there they are – I will keep trying to get a picture of Puki but he is a shy cat. I highly doubt I’ll ever even get to see Uza because he stays in Adam’s room and apparently doesn’t like anyone in the house except for Adam (including the other animals).

Day 2 in Israel


I woke up later this morning (9.30 Israeli time) – body is still on UK time. There hasn’t been any clouds today so has felt hotter but drinking plenty of water is helping. Today Dan & I took Avraham into the city centre for an appointment. We got there early so had lunch. I had something similar to a kebab in pita bread with humous, tomatoes and cucumbers – yummy! We then meandered around and down to the beach … it was gorgeous!!!

So here’s my stupid video from this morning followed by pictures from the beach … enjoy!

Day One in Israel!


So I made it here at last! I have the luxury of sleeping under a ceiling fan as well!!! I love sleeping under them – always find it so peaceful 🙂

Okay I made the short video below just a wee bit ago and didn’t even think of checking the state of my hair beforehand so please excuse as it is rather funky. I had a shower before bed and so it is flat and slept on!

Enjoy! Miss everyone already 🙂 Love xo
