Israel (and vicinity)

You can fly there for less than $ 400. A charter to Cyprus is about 200. The ferry Limassol – Haifa – $ 60. Prices, respectively, round-trip. In winter, charters need to be sought both in St. Petersburg and in Kiev, somewhere, yes there are. Nevertheless, if you fly even in the winter with Aeroflot, then: from November 1, a winter discount of about 20% is valid. And in general there are all sorts of Pecs, apexes, youngsters, in a word, in $ 400, you can get everything done.

By the way, in November there are still full buzz in terms of climate, and in terms of prices, say, in Cyprus, too. It should be borne in mind that the ferry from Limassol goes only once a week, and most likely you will have to turn around somewhere in Cyprus for a few days, which in itself is a great pleasure. At this time of the year you can easily find an overnight stay for $ 5 from the bow (in the private sector), and if there isn’t even this money, sleep on the beach on trestle beds, it’s easy there. Imagine the dawn over the Mediterranean! Continue reading

Tel Aviv – Jaffa

Kilometers of sandy beaches, the golden coast, on which the waves of the turquoise blue Mediterranean Sea gently roll. Daily catch at the fishing port, open-air cafe on green glades and noisy streets.

From dawn to dawn on the Mediterranean coast, in countless restaurants, clubs, pubs, entertainment venues, life is in full swing.

There is no other city that represents modern Israel better than Tel Aviv, along with ancient Jaffa, where the biblical Jonah emerged victorious in the battle with the whale.

The magic of the Mediterranean Continue reading

From the desert – with love

Deserts in Israel are not dull tons of sand, but colorful mountains, deep canyons and caves created by wind, water and time. This is a carefully regulated living world, not emptiness, but space, incitement to contemplation.

Cowboys, Bedouins and cold beer

There were five of us. We lived in Eilat for three days and frolic in the water from the bottom of our hearts. We swam in the Red Sea just like that, diving with a mask near the coral reefs, taking pictures with dolphins. And we wanted some kind of land exotic. Maybe in the desert on a camel? Natural and exotic! Here it is, the desert, visible from the hotel window, it remains to find a camel. The flyer read: Texas Ranch, camel tours starting at $ 35, including Bedouin snacks.
