Globetrotter Girls – Breathtaking Tel Aviv Sunset

Dani - Tel Aviv Sunset

You might remember that I really wanted to spend a month or longer in Tel Aviv after visiting the city last year, which is why I was stoked when the opportunity arose to return this month, finally, about twelve months after my first visit. I was a bit nervous, not sure if I’d still love the city as much as I did last year, but I didn’t have anything to worry about. The minute I stepped off the plane and felt the warm Mediterranean air, I knew I’d have a great time. After checking into my apartment I went straight to the beach to watch the sunrise, followed by a delicious Israeli breakfast. It felt amazing coming from chilly Germany to summery Tel Aviv, where temperatures were still in the 80s and the Med was warm enough to go for swims in the sea.

Being in Tel Aviv on a budget challenge was an interesting experience – on the one hand I realized that Tel Aviv is indeed quite pricey, but on the other hand I found a ton of free stuff to do (I’ll be sharing my budget tips for Tel Aviv shortly). My favorite free activity? The beaches, no question! Every day in Tel Aviv has to involve a visit to the beach – ideally during sunset, or a long run along the promenade. The agenda for my second visit? I wanted to revisit old favorites but also experience a few things I didn’t get around to doing last year.

I strolled through the narrow alleys of Jaffa again, took in the vistas over the city from there, had what is supposedly the best hummus in all of Israel (and I can now confirm that it really is the best hummus in Israel!) and visited the amazing Ilana Goor art museum (a first for me, and so worth it). I also made time for a visit to Carmel market, a walk down the beautiful Rothschild Boulevard, and for some gift and souvenir shopping in Jaffa Flea Market.
